We were invited out to another spectacular training event over the weekend and we got to watch some of the best police sniper teams do their work. When you see stuff like this go on you really feel good to know that people like this are involved in protecting the public. Many of these guys that were spending the day in a a friendly competition may be involved in taking down a hostage taker or taking down a terrorist. These are the men that have to remain calm and follow orders, but know that they are serving and protecting the public.
When the conditions are right, it’s real easy to see bullet vapor trails. Your eyes have to be trained for it, but many people don’t even know to look for it. The one thing that I find amazing is the guy pulling the trigger always seems to get the credit for the hit, but he’s really just the person following directions. Having a good pair of binoculars that give you the clarity and field of view can help you gather information about the range, target selection and even bullet vapor trails that will increase your chances of getting a higher hit ratio.
