Nowhere are the big guns covered in more detail. Before Sgt. First Class Dean Michaelis (ret.) wrote the book on sniping, he wrote a first-of-its-kind program of instruction for the Special Operations Target Interdiction Course. A member of the 1st Special Fources Group, he taught students everything they needed to know to succeed and survive. Now he brings that information to you, covering every aspect of the snipers art: the history, equipment, skills and missions. He also inclues reproducible forms, a military-issue.50 caliber cartridge tip color guide and his exclusive Program of Instruction for military and civilian shooters alike. 8 1/2 x 11, softcover, photos, illus., 576 pp.
