As long as there will be a need to combat evil, there will be a need for guns. And if there's a need for guns there's a need for making the precision long range rifle shot. But there is much foolishness and misunderstanding on the serious subject of sniping and the difficulty of making a successful long distance shot. Human factors and a myriad of hard to pin down variables conspire against the very precise long rang rifle shot. Don’t believe all your read or see on the subject; much of it is doctored to manipulate the audience. Intended for a principled LE, Military, and Civilian audience, that along with many interesting issues is addressed here. Spring boarding off of TNP long range testing and data, a definition is given for what constitutes long range: 500 yards and beyond. Some time is spent attacking a few Myths on long range shooting: that making such a shot is easy, hitting moving targets is easy, being able to make such a shot puts you on par with a military trained sniper, buying expensive equipment will make you a better shot, how long range rifles are no more dangerous than any other gun [millions of “deer rifles” to prove the point], how shooting in the same place leads to false confidence, that zeros remain the same, that precision long range shooting is cheap, that long distance ranges are easy to find, how a long distance shot in military, LE is commonplace (it isn’t) and more. The SNIPER FANTASY then begins the POU discussion and we attack this notion with facts. We concentrate on the military sniper, his support structure, the burden he carries the rest of his life to prove the point. Human life is sacred and taking it is never sought. WROL concerns addressed and are grounded to reality. A fog of war discussion grounds the concept. More realistic POUs of the long range rifle follow: competition, 2nd Kind of Cool, hunting, project rifle, and just plain recreational fun. These are the most realistic and recommended POUs for these rifles. This is another touchstone gear and preparation TNP philosophy video that will change the discussion on long range shooting.
