SRT Basic Sniper

Monday, April 18, 2022

This training lays a solid educational and practical foundation for the new or veteran sniper looking to get back to the basics. In five days, we try to cover all the basics that a police sniper could encounter on their first callout, as if it were scheduled to happen on Friday after graduation. The focus of this training is on operational tactics such as field-craft, observation, reporting, range estimation, urban tactics, and marksmanship skills with emphasis on the cold bore shot. Other areas of instruction include policy and equipment recommendations, the mechanics of the rifle and scope, ballistics, the data book, hostage rescue engagements, intermediate barriers, night fire, positional shooting, and moving targets. All graduates will have demonstrated proficiency at ranges of 5 to 800 yards.
