Well folks, I have returned. After several days of pain, dehydration and several llloooonnnnngggggg nights splashing in the water and land naving. Out of 18 bodies only 6 stuck it out, and yes, I was one of them. Now we just wait to see if they want me, this is the worst part I must say. So, here I sit with a jug of gatorade and some Icy hot. Thanks all for your support

On most STA (Sniper / Targeting / Aquisition) Unit web sites you can download the PDF version of most instruction papers pertaining to Sniper school. Heck... you can download Weapon Custody papers off the main USMC.mil website!!! Why? I have no clue... but it must be filled out by the Armory... so you can download all you want they wont be worth anything. Thank you for your concern though! :)

Pound,

Congrats!! Thats great news.

When you say urban sniping package, do you go to SS school first followed by the SWAT school at riverside?
