Counter Sniper Observation and Negation
May 30 @ 09:00 - May 31 @ 17:00$200.00
This is a special half price for this weekend. $200 instead of $400. You are getting a great class (probably our best) with some info you will not see otherwise. This is a 2 day class with field experience you won’t get without paying $1500 or more ( I checked ), and a binder (8×11’) with about a 100 pages of useful information!
So here is a problem to work out prior to class if you can. This is an example of what you will learn in class.
Your team has just lured a BTR-80 (Russian APC) into ambush. You are on over watch covering your two best friends, whom you have known since high school, as they are sprinting across the street to take up a new fighting position. After they took off running, after it was too late to call them back, you spotted an enemy soldier hiding behind the BTR. In a matter of seconds, he will shoot your two friends at close range with his AK-47.
Your mil-dot covers 4 mils from the ground to the top of the hull.
You should be able to fire within five seconds of locating the enemy and without taking your eyes off him. This is important because you probably only detected the tiniest hint of movement in the rubble. If you have to look away to operate a laser rangefinder and/or a slide rule, you may not be able to find him again.
How far away is the BTR-80? What is your hold over from your established weapon zero? Or do your friends die? Remember: 5 Seconds! …tick, tick, tick, tick, tick…….
