Sniping. from Websters.To shoot at an exposed individual (as of an enemy's forces) from a point of vantage.
Have you studided your A.O (area of operation),your neighborhood,county,city,country roads etc.If attacked by an enemy where would you be able to shoot with the least chance of being shot.
Remember 3% said the snipers only protection is camoflauge-distance.
I have bad news for ya,not all of us are gonna be 1000 yd heartbreakers.Be it due to age,not as steady as we once were,eye sight,quality of weapon,lack of practice,training,etc.
I do strongly reccomend any who can afford a good long range rifle,if you don't have one,get one A.S.A.P. You do not have to buy a Sniper rifle per se.
Most decent hunting rifles will work.Calibers can cause all kinds of debate.As long as it's a little more powerfull than average assult rifle it will help.
Most common assult rifles AR - AK have aprx 400-600 yd range.Loose estimates dont crucify me.
For those who are new or recoil sensitive even 6mm-243 rounds are powerfull kick lightly.
For those who already shoot,you probally already know .308 is one of favorite rounds by many,.308,30-06,300 win mag,300 wsm,7mm,those with money lazzoroni-lapua-weatherby.Just remember that faster it shoots the shorter the barrel life.
Not all shooting will be at extreme long range.So truly practice from point blank to 1000 yds.
Threeper said shooting while moving was a critical skill to have,I have never done it,have you.He recommended shooting around obstacles,over,under pretty much any situtation you may find yourself in.
I reccomend long range because I am not a soldier,I am a tired 48 yr old man packin about 20 lbs I dont need,I will not likely be a match for 20yr old studs that can run for miles.
What do you think? Right on or not?
