    WW2 US Army Sniper Training Film (purportedly)



    There is an excellent segment on estimating distances using telescopic sight graticules. Enjoy!

    Excellent training film for Preppers, should go virile, those old WWII training films are amazing and make everything so simple, especially range estimation, so don't forget to add a calculator, pad, pencil, and slide rule to your BOB, and hey Joe, let me bum a Lucky Strike, because if I can hit anything with my sniper rifle now, that's what the Sergeant will call it, a lucky strike.

    M118LR Caution: Does not play well with others.

    chelloveck, as entertaining as I found that. All the folks that had a momentary snapshot of that 4 Mil-Dot figure on the scope should have had more than enough information to successfully complete the mission. LOL

    The mission was achieved by the entertainment it provided for the viewer. Still...there was enough gun candy to compensate for the hammy acting. Pity Vic Morrow is dead, he would have given the instructor's role a little more verisimilitude. ;)
