Welcome to the boards, I see you've taken the time to actually read the stickies.
This forum is for the more advanced Snipers/Marksmen in the sport. Most of the information you will find, and hopefully add, includes knowledgeable facts and experiences of your career as a rifle holder. There are threads for beginners, but please refrain from asking useless questions like "What rifle is better?" "What scheme should I use for my rifle?" and "My gun shoots 500fps, what BB's should I use?". Useless threads like that will be deleted without hesitation.
If you are new to the Marksmen scene, and looking for good information, you have come to the right place. A guideline you need to follow is, not to post in a thread unless your information is usable to others.
Now, onto the basics. Just make your introduction post simple, but please know the basic rules of this forum:
-Do not necro post (Post in a thread that is over 3 months old, unless it is extremely relevant, pending on it... We'll allow, just know that the thread is 3 months old because chances are the topic has been discussed and/or the question has been answered).
-Watch your spelling (Make sure that you at least sound professional, if you're asking for advice on something, put as much time and thought into your inquiry as you'd want us to put into your answer)
-Don't showboat (That's great if you are the 1337est shit to hit airsoft, we don't care. Posting excessively for no purpose than to belittle other airsoft snipers and/or try to make yourself sound cooler is cruise control for a permanate ban)
-Don't make your profile name anything that is a branch of the US Armed Forces or any other Military for that matter unless you've actually served/earned the right to do so. Such examples are "NavySEAL23, USMCSniper12, ARMYRanger99, you get the point"
Other than that, enjoy the boards, just keep your introduction short, sweet, and to the point. If you're not good at that sort of thing, use this template!
