good read and all, but... Yeah. RL sniping and airsoft sniping? two completely different things.

-cover IS concealment
-little to no range advantage
-action moves too fast for sniper intel to be worthwile
-keeping moving negates single shot rifles 90% of the time

most folks learn after a few months these differences and turn to a recon role if they want to stay sneaky, two man team sporting automatics. that way they stay useful when a fight happens.

you'll learn.

I just wanna add something here, tall grass is your best option. Trees arent a good choice unless your up in them. If your near a tree on the ground, it will give the tree a big 'lump' look to it. This is what the military snipers call 'Tree Cancer'. But besides that, great guide.

good basic write up for field craft but you must be bored to write up something on sniping for airsoft. i like the ending, you should have just said hey fata$@ we see you laying there lol

Thanks for the bit of advice, Gunner! I'm actually getting back into airsoft, and I currently own a stock WELL MB03. It's a nice little piece for the price, and I'm excited about using it in action. Are you coming to the Valley Creek night game on August 6th?

This was a really great tutorial, Gunner. And I did learn a lot from it, thanks for sharing your knowledge of snipery stuff with us xD I found a USMC Scout Sniper manual if you want to read that if you wanna get more serious about sniping. It's from the 1980's though, I can't get my hands on a recent one. I'm sure they don't want that knowledge in the hands of the public. I don't know if I'm intruding by replying to this thread.. Because many have seen it but none have replied.. But I thought it would be nice for you guys to know what I know, so I wanted to give you the link to this manual. Again I'm terribly sorry if I'm intruding by replying on this thread, and if I am, you can delete this comment at any time.
