Profession - sniper

Profession - sniper

One of the most difficult military specialties is a sniper. And the point here is not only and not even so much that a sniper needs accuracy when shooting, but that, first of all, a sniper is, perhaps, a state of mind.


Phenomenal endurance, psychological stability, readiness to forget about everything in order to achieve the goal, to complete the assigned task for ten out of ten, self-control, the ability to listen and hear your body, transforming weapon in its continuation.

The work of a real sniper is largely not for prying eyes. Perhaps that is why there is not much real documentary about professional modern snipers and their combat missions.

On the T-24 channel, such documentary came out and managed to provoke a wide discussion both among real professionals and among those who are interested in the topic of "shooters". The video tells about the use of one or another sniper weapon, equipment, how snipers prepare for combat missions, how they hone their skills.

    The shot rang out, without nerves.
    Quietly, exactly, without words.
    You started counting: "Here is the first
    Of the last enemies! "

    Because you are a sniper
    Lone soldier
    You spot all day
    Arrow points ...

    Your time is from dawn to sunset
    Your place is a shelter, a gap.
    You are now an invisible soldier
    Your business is to shoot the target ...

    So that the enemies do not leave -
    And they won't leave -
    From your fatherland
    You put them here ...

    Because you are a sniper! ..

    "Shot to Kill" By Alexandra Snezhnaya. Although this is a fantasy novel, the work of a sniper in different conditions is described simply brilliantly.

      She used to shoot well: my father trained recruits, along with me)))
      And then his eyesight deteriorated due to hours of continuous reading - either in the low, semi-dark attic, or in the cramped storage room of the library, illuminated only by a meager light penetrating through the half-open door. But the feeling of a weapon in hand is forever. Favorite hero - Sniper from a large series of books by Dmitry Sillov. I don’t get tired of rereading, just don’t throw stones at me, please! ))) This is the lowest request for lovers of serious literature. At one time I reread it mountains, and of all the characters - fictional, historical, as well as from the galaxy of scientists and cultural figures, the closest in spirit turned out to be ... Sniper! ))
