A professional sniper needs to accomplish three things to do his job: be predictable, repeatable, and precise! To help achieve that goal, veteran sniping instructor and competitive long-range shooter Eduardo Abril de Fontcuberta has collected dozens of exercises from elite military and police sniping programs and organized them into a complete training course. Now, snipers, instructors, and even civilian long-range target shooters can develop and assess their performance, individually or as a unit, and meet the standards of the best snipers in the world. The exercises in this book—from the U.S. Marines and U.S. Army, U.S. Navy SEALs, Spanish Foreign Legion, Swedish Marines, Gunsite, Snipercraft, and many other top sniping programs—cover the entire spectrum of the professional sniper's skill set, including: close-range and known-distance shooting—testing cold-bore zeros, target identification, knowing your limits . . . long-range shooting—range estimation, ballistics and wind reading, hard-target interdiction . . . complex and skills-oriented exercises—accuracy under stress, simultaneous engagements, shooting through glass, angle shooting, shooting through loopholes . . . nonshooting requirements—communications, camouflage and observation, land navigation, tactical medicine, survival and tracking . . . The author wraps up with his recommendations for sniper competitions, schools, instructors, and equipment. Whether you need stand-alone training drills or a complete course in tactical marksmanship, you will get it with the exercises in this book.

"This manual is a necessity for any unit attempting to combat piracy or undertake any maritime operation." –Chief Chris Kyle, former Navy SEAL sniper/instructor "I strongly recommend adding this book to your training resources." –Sgt. Major Mark Spicer, retired British Army sniper instructor. For the professional sniper, engaging a target on the high seas is one of the most challenging assignments of all. Erratic movement introduced by waves, vessel speeds, and engine vibrations; short, sudden windows of opportunity; and a host of unique environmental factors make the shot that much more demanding for even experienced marksmen. Now, master sniper Fredrik Jonsson has written what is destined to become the classic manual on precision fire from seaborne platforms. Jonsson combines his vast experience in sniping deployment and instruction, specialized operations in troubled waters around the world, and competitive shooting to instruct dozens of specialized skills, including: timing shots for wave harmonics firing from one moving vessel at targets on another moving vessel firing through shipboard glass determining range and reading the wind in the tricky ocean arena establishing a suitable shooting platform on a vessel at speed conducting sniper-specific training at sea maintaining weapons and optics in the harsh saltwater environment The maritime sniper plays a vital role in combating piracy, providing cover for vessel- and GOPLAT-boarding teams, protecting high-value vessels, and many other missions. To hope that the sea will be calm the day you will have to take that crucial shot is simply not an option. Master the skills of seaborne sniping with Maritime Sniper Manual, called by John Plaster, author of The Ultimate Sniper, the "best thing out there on this subject."

In his original version of Long-Range Precision Rifle, U.S. Army sniper and avid precision rifle and long-range rifle shooter, competitor, and enthusiast Anthony Cirincione II put extreme accuracy with a precision rifle within the reach of any shooter. His instruction was based on 26 months of combat deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan and his training of squad-designated marksmen for his battalion. His precision-shooting book proved to be an instant best-seller. In this expanded edition, Cirincione adds five new sections: "External Ballistic Truing." Although he briefly detailed the process of external ballistic truing in the first edition, given the level of importance to midrange and long-range target engagement, he believes that the process of truing deserves a detailed description. "Determining Fast and Correct Windage Adjustments or Holds."Cirincione covered the creation of a custom windage card for specific guns and pet loads in the first edition, but this added windage section shares his current process. The old way works fine, but his new method is faster and more precise, and doesn't require you to look at a card. As always, the process can be applied to any caliber you are using. "Midrange and Long-Range Target Engagement: Magneto Speed V3 Ballistic Chronograph vs. External Ballistic Truing." This section features a report Cirincione sent to the U.S. Army Sniper School outlining the testing of a barrel-mounted chronograph. The test pitted the device against his current method of external ballistic truing, given target engagements from 100 to 1,000 yards. It gives you a couple of different options to get on target at extended range. "How to Build a Switch-Barrel Rifle, and the Process of Swapping Barrels." As Cirincione has moved away from factory bolt-action rifles and into custom-built guns, he thought readers would appreciate information on how to build one. Not only that, but he also includes specific information on how to remove and add barrels of different calibers to that same stock and action. "Suppressed Subsonic Shooting." This section is about precision shot placement with subsonic ammo out to 400 yards. Long-Range Precision Rifle: Expanded Edition lays out the most up-to-date methods for getting the most out of whatever rifle you are using. After discussing rifle, ammunition and optic selection, Cirincione reveals his tried-and-true methods of gathering and recording data. He takes you step-by-step through the process of discovering how to make your rifle perform at its peak with every shot. You will also learn how to adjust for environmental factors and obstructions that lie between you and your target, and discover why handloading and building your own precision cartridges is an extra step well worth taking. "Anthony Cirincione was an amazing teacher while helping me get ready for sniper school. His knowledge and meticulous rifle setup techniques were instrumental to my success. udents and further help the sniper community."

Photographer, author, and educator Roberto Valenzuela has a proven track record for teaching and explaining difficult concepts to photographers of all skill levels. His remarkable ability to break down complicated ideas into understandable, approachable elements that photographers can truly grasp–and then use their newfound knowledge to improve their photography–made his first book, Picture Perfect Practice, a breakout success. In Picture Perfect Posing, Roberto takes on the art of posing. For many photographers, after learning to compose an image and even light it properly, a portrait can still easily be a failure if the pose is not natural, elegant, and serving the needs of both the subject and the photographer. Instead of just showing page after page of poses–like most posing books on the market–Roberto actually breaks down the concept of posing by examining the anatomy, starting with the core foundation: the spinal chord and neck. Building from there, Roberto discusses every component of what makes poses work, as well as fail. How should the model hold her hands? Bend her elbows? Position her fingers? Should the model look toward or away from the camera, and why? It all depends on what the photographer wants for the shot, and Roberto discusses the entire process, from the intent of the photographer through the execution of the pose. For those who have been discouraged by an inability to pose their subjects, or who have simply not known where to start in order to "figure it out," Picture Perfect Posing is the essential resource they need to learn how posing truly works, and how they can learn to direct the exact pose they need for the shot they want.
