    It's pretty much just that. Shooting through a small hole to help mask your location. Sometimes the term is used for shooting from within a building, sometimes they'll throw the term around when shooting through dense vegitation and have an unobstructed line of sight to the target. There's a formula for calculating the size of the hole necessary for engaging a target an a certain distance. It's technically considered classified, so some "hall monitor" types will freak out about posting it online, but in reality, it's something you can figure out easily with either a little experimentation, or just doing the math. The hole necessary is pretty freakin small though. Definately an interesting technique.

    So it's just figuring out how big a hole you need to engage a target at a certain distance? Interesting.....

    as long as you can keep the external view looking natural, otherwise it will have the opposite effect and call attention to your location rather than concealing it.
