Sniper course?

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by tucker9037, Jul 19, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Does anyone know the dates of the next available snipers course? Also a bit of a heads up on the course?

  2. You ask a lot of dull questions. Ask yer effin unit FFS.

    (I do hear that there is availability on the underwater knife fighting course)
  3. ^^^ I'll choose to ignore your response........ ******* Reptile

  5. There isn't one........not for the TA as TA infantry are not roled for it.
  6. Even though my unit is part of 16 air assault brigade?

  7. Skill fade is the excuse so your not going to get to play with ghilli suits anytime soon.
  8. Your unit is not part of 16AA, 1 RIR are, you are with 2 RIR are you not?
  9. If you're 4 Para...Maybe. If Not. Bob Hope.
  10. 2 RIR yes. We are part of 16 AAB
  11. Not for much longer your not.

  12. No chance mate....massive backlog of pebblemonkeys wanting to get their ugly mugs on the news innit.
  13. To the OP, the above may be of interest to you
  14. The Royal Irish (not RIR - that's the Royal Irish Rifles who haven't existed since 1921) are moving to 1 Mech Bde as we speak.

    And no sniper courses for TA. TA aren't established for snipers and there is no short TA snipers course.

    But if there are any other courses you fancy, speak to your chain if command.

    And I think 2 R IRISH are OPCOM 38 Northern Ireland Bde - a Regional Forces Bde.
