Three day Class usually starts on Friday at 8:00AM, runs through the weekend and ends at 5:00PM on Sunday, snow, rain or shine.
This class offers an introduction into the philosophy and methodology behind Sniper application within Soviet Armed Forces and especially Spetsnaz units. This three day class will have students become familiar with their weapons and scopes, learn “shooting nest” set up and basic concealment, movement within a unit, quick target acquisition and rapid precision fire. Students will gain an understanding of Soviet Sniper doctrine and gain confidence in their ability to engage targets at long distance with additional twist – Dropping Temperatures.
Apart from the main theme of this course, students will have a chance to take part in assuming leadership roles, setting up a bivouac and meal consumption Soviet Army style as well as a few other surprises that our staff has prepared.
This course is taught by our staff instructor Mark “Marco” Vorobiev with assistance from another staff instructor David Fortier.
This is going to be high-pace, high-intensity class with fair amount of shooting.
Cost - $550.00 per student for the entire course. Early registration discount of $50.00 is applicable if registration sent in 30 days prior the scheduled date of a Course.
This class is limited to 20 students. Spots are offered on a first come-first served basis.
Saturday night a BBQ dinner will be hosted by Behind Lines for all students, instructors and staff.
At the end of the Course Certificates of completion will be awarded.
