    Yes - if you impress more than you are doing so far....
     
  3. According to your "name" you already are a sniper, you walt cnut! Why not change your "name" to "civvy_wannabe"?
     
  4. But in brief, yes you can.
     
  5. Like sitting in bushes getting cold and wet for days on end, then? Should take up dogging.
     
  6. On our sniper cadre the candidates got two five second exposures of a head sized target at a range of 1200 ms.

    Over 3 days :)
     
  7. Longbows loose arrows that far? wow. :D

    Yeah, I remember that Cadre. Real b!tch it was. Not only did you get a Fig. 12 twice in two days, 200M beyond the effective range of the weapon, you then had to knock off a Fig.11 at 2500m which only appeared for .5 seconds, after having waited a whole week.

    And all that with an SA80 too.
     
  9. 25001m

    I waited a month wearing only my skiddies
