I was watching a show about snipers on the military Chanel. They said they used about 30,000 rounds of ammo for every 1 VC killed in Vietnam.
Kind of sucks when you can train someone to use 1 round to take out 1 and in some cases 2 people.
I doubt all these sniper wannabes are really paying attention.
As a sniper, you have to not only be a naturally great shot,
survive full SF training courses,
then attend special ballistics and sniper courses,
and heightened survival training.
All so you can crawl through the weeds, perch in the trees,
or crawl through rubble, for hours at a time,
while wearing an itchy gillie or special camo
suit, while being exposed to the elements, and chewed on
by every bug God made. Heaven forbid the enemy manages to
capture you without killing you, and your mission's (pop)
generally going to be off the record. For my money, you can
keep that thankless, painful, irritating $#!+...
