"Modern Sniper"
 
What is everyone's opinion on this show?

If you haven't watched it, it's on Netflix.

I'll say this: those camera crews nearly got messed up 8-9 times a day when they came and filmed us at Benning!

I think it's a decent show but they should give the candidates a little more space so they can focus on what they are actually there for. Not a tv show. Btw, thank you for your service

Hehe. That's why I said they nearly got effed up 8-@ times a day. You'd be surprised at how much they expected us to divulge and how close they got with their cameras!

Dumb sh*t media & the military don't mix.

It's on my queue, have yet to see it though.

havent got netflix but my opinion is the media has got no business anywhere near our troops while they are training.

its not like they arent going to add fake made up drama into any story anyway. but the last things our guys and gals need is some @sshat jamming cameras in their faces while they are trying to absorb information and techniques their lives will depend on.

Agreed. They started asking one of my trainees some "specifics" and I almost kicked the guys ass.

Wanted to know "exactly how" we do this or that and THEN he was gonna tell em where my trainees were from!

Haven't watched "modern sniper" yet, but I did check out the Top Sniper competition, that has been pretty good so far. Going to have to check out this show though. I am fascinated by this kind of stuff.
