Yeah, they have very strict regs over there, I do find it funny that even if you have prior military sniping experience. You are still required to take the course. This probably just means that this course tells you the rules of the field, and not actually sniping.

Wow.... What a bunch of snobs. I'm totally fine with people getting really serious about airsoft, but this looks just plain ridiculous. The main part that bothered me was the part about military members having to take it. Anyone who has gone through a real sniping school is going to know a heck lot more than any airsofter. Also, what difference does it make to them if someone wants to wear a ghillie suite or not? What snobbery.

*Please note that I am an absolute newb who doesn't even have all his sniping gear yet, so feel free to totally disregard this post if you wish. My apologies if anything that I said sounded stupid or ignorant*

No, I'll agree.

If I was a USMC Scout Sniper, or really any branch Scout Sniper.. And some 14 year old was telling me I was doing it wrong, I'd probably punch him and leave. (Note, I would leave very quick.. Due to the whole.. 20 something year old punching a 14 year old, that could get ugly
).

May I just add somthing, this is done by Tolcom ( http://tolcom.org/ ) nto some group of 14 year olds. I know that tolcom is highly respected out east. I plan on sending an email to inquire further about this sniper school. This course only certifies you for TOLCOM's field. I will post what I find when I get it

EDIT: If you head on over to their forum and scroll down there is a section on snipers.

Hrm...I live in this area now. I wonder if they'll let me attend for free so I can review it on Airsoft Commando?

That would also soften my pride at lowering myself to such degradation. But really, it's best to remain neutral and humble. The second you assume you can't learn something, the pack is leaving you behind.

Edit: I queried the Jolly Green (who's apparently the founder of Tolcom) and he said that a Army qualified sniper teaches the sniper course and a retired Army major teaches the Squad Tactics ones.
