    Soviet Sniper Course

    Two day Class starts on Saturday at 8:00AM, runs through Weekend and ends at 5:00PM on Sunday, rain or shine.

    This class offers introduction into philosophy and methodology behind Sniper application within Soviet Armed Forces and especially Spetsnaz units. Three day class will have students get 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 a confidence to engage targets at long distance.

    Apart from main theme of this course students will have chance to take part in taking a leadership roles, setting up a bivouac and meal consumption the Soviet Army style and few other surprises that our staff had prepared.

    As an added bonus this class will include a night fire exercise. Students are welcome to bring their own Night Vision equipment. There will be several NV equipped soviet type weapons available from Behind Lines.

    This course is taught by our staff instructor Mark “Marco” Vorobiev with assistance from another staff instructor David Fortier.

    This is going to be hi-pace, hi-intensity class with fair amount of shooting.

    Cost - $450.00 per student for the entire course.

    This class is limited to 20 students. Spots are offered on first come-first served basis.

    Saturday night a dinner will be hosted by Behind Lines for all students, instructors and staff.

    NOone14;
    Why do you have north east, Pa. as your address, North East is in Erie Co, and Bradford Co. isn't in Northeastern Pa???

    The training sounds interesting, but I'll be too busy to even consider it.

    If i had an SVD Dragunov or PSL-54C i would be there. A scope on my old Mosin Nagant would even work too. Sadly i do not have either, or the funds to acquire one in time. This course sounds intensely fun. Wish i had the hardware to attend.
