Snipers

Friday, 26 February 2010 06:21

About a hundred soldiers from the Moscow Military District gathered at firing ranges in Naro-Fominsk near Moscow to sharpen their target-shooting skills.

Accurate shooting and skilful camouflage are the main secrets of a successful sniper. Soldiers use time-tested Dragunov sniper rifles to hit targets 300 meters (1,000 feet) away. However, bullet-riddled targets are not the only criterion for assessing a sniper’s skills because instructors prioritize camouflage.The training session will last until April when shooting accuracy will be assessed. Those wishing to become professional snipers will be offered military service contracts and additional training opportunities.
