watch top sniper on the miltitary channel on the 14, going to be good, and might learn something, that's a suprise plus it's good entertainment.

If you guys know I-tunes, you can buy a video for $2.00 called Sniper School, it has some helpful information about camoflage and general sniper stuff. I also have the U.S. Army special forces handbook, but I dont think you would be able to get that in holland unless you order it online. There are some good guides out there.

I read Marine Sniper and it is awesome for tactics and training. Plus it is about Carlos Hathcock, arguably the worlds best sniper.

Shooter is about the gulf war, and talks about a mobile sniper unit which is very applicable to paintball

not to mention its very interesting to read and see the perspective of a marine who actually fought in the war

My advice to you:

Read the books for fun, but not to play paintball.


Honestly, the two translate very poorly with one another. One is a highly accurate, slow moving, patient art, while the other is a fast moving, patient, then high rof/make shots count art. The only thing which really translates well is controlling breathing, (because you need to move into position, and you can't be huffing and puffing), and concealment.

It is cool though :) It almost makes me want to write a book about it, however I prob don't have as much experience as 1/2 of you :D

Military manuals are dry and hard to read through like a book. They are designed more a a reference to look something specific up.

If you want a good, solid, all around sniper book that is written for civilians, military, and police, then look up "The Ultimate Sniper" by John L. Plaster on Amazon.com or something. THis book covers everything from ballistics to rifles, to operations. It shows you how to make and modify camouflage so it works better for different environments, about setting up hides, moving, etc. Though it is designed for real shooters, there is a lot of information in there that can be used for other applications.

The downside is that it is a little pricey. But other than that a pretty good resource. Its a lot easier to use than military manuals. I use the book along side the manuals that were issued to me. Like supplemental reading.
Don't flatter yourself...you don't really know.
