Sniper equipment

#9
Obviusly I ain't a sniper yet! Doing the course in jan! So pipe down ball bag!
You failed then haven't you? and whats obvious about wanting to know where to get the kit due to going on a course? To me it would have been more obvious to look for something yourself using a search engine before making yourself look like a cnut on here.

You might have been wanting to buy something for chrimbo......for a real soldier, who has the right attituude and skills to pass the course.

What else you failed at?

Gobshite prick didn't even have the brains or initative to google for info, then got chopsy cos someone pointed at the glaring lack of intelligence or positive attitude....nor did he have any mates or qualified snipers to ask.

Good prep for a course starting in a few weeks..durch.

Surprised you training wing are allowing you to do it with the blatant lack of prep, unless they just want you out of the way for a bit as you probabaly bore the shite out of them too.

No worries, the QM's Dept always needs extra hands to make the brews.

Enjoy the course...for the 3 days that you will be on it Nig.

Any one know any good sites for sniper equipment I.e ghille suits, lens cloths........
I know a few Ghillies but don't think any of them have suits, though one defiantly has quite a nice tweed jacket I saw him wearing it at a funeral. If you are really desperate I am sure he would be willing to part with it for twenty quid and a bottle of 12 year old. Send me the money (cash) and a nice boxed malt and I will make sure he gets both and sends you the jacket. If you don't fancy the jacket I have an old suit you could have, same deal. I am not a ghillie but poach a few salmon now and then.

Mattie, for feck sake!.....this site isn't secure. You've mentioned in other posts about being 4th BRF now you've given me an address to send the rotting fish and gay porn.

With the weather as it is, also get a norgie snow suit , a white woolen ski mask/balaclava and a white sheet.


Oh, and many moons ago I got the same deal re a fast ball sniper course, including the fact that my whole Bn were going on leave and they wanted me to give that up for 3 weeks of being beasted?


Good luck..... I don't envy you.

Awesome persec! Doesn't surprise me from some of the idiots I've met in infantry "recce" platoons though...

Actually I do, but that's probably because I'm 69 in a few months time . I never did much shooting being RAF ground crew, and even on a 25yard range with a 303 I was never anything other than average.

Anyway good luck with the course, and if you should change your mind about the jacket I would prefer Talisker, but if you cant get that anything will do.

I thought everyone knew you had to beg and grovel to prof a spare set of knacked combats from the QM along with some hessian, make the thing and then go drag it through some compost and then hang it outside for a month or so before even thinking about wearing it.

Lens cleaning cloth; a small piece of very, very, soft chamois leather works well - an optician I used in the UK swears by the method.

Whose course are you going on?

If you want a decent head-and-shoulders and backdrop, make one - don't buy the shit that airsofters' think are hoofing because they aren't very good. If you have to buy stuff because of leave, get yourself to a surplus shop and buy some scrim, hessian, a jungle hat, and old helmet covers (to re-use the green elastic). When you sew it all together, go for a decent coverage of bundled strands of hessian (but not too much - you don't want to look like Chewbacca) and plenty of elastics for putting veg into. Natural cam is very important.

If you want to succeed, do not neglect your basic map-reading kit - a good weather writer (landscape) is a must, as are 0.5mil automatic pencils, a good steel ruler (with 0.5mil increments), pocket calculator etc. As others have said, a simple chamois leather cloth (cut a strip off and wear it on paracord round your neck) is best for maintaining your optics. Some Mr. Sheen liberally sprayed and buffed on the objective lense also helps keep the rain off.

Brushing up on your military knowledge (range work, map reading, weapons recognition, OP pneumonics) will also pay dividends. Speak to blokes you know who have recently passed to get the best steer as possible and, preferably, a copy of their notes.
