    I have a question concerning snipers in ghillie-suits. Does teh sniper (and the spotter I suppose) have their pistols with them and if so is the pistol on his person? If not where does he/they have their sidearms?

    If issued, generally yes. Obviously it comes down to respective militaries TTP's.

    Depending on the task a sniper team [may cache extraneous gear before moving into their final firing position or equivalent. But it would be pointless to leave a pistol behind.

    From Michael Yon's latest dispatch







    I particularly liked the range markings on the rifle in this photo





    More to be found half way through the most recent of his unfailingly excellent reports; without doubt, Yon is the best of the current crop of commentators reporting on current military operations.

    A true sniper is a vetted marksman who has graduated his respective military's advanced marksmanship program.

    There's a good article here explaining differences between Designated Marksmen and more traditional "snipers".

    No problem. Snipers have always interested me. I saw the movie Sniper when I was like 10 and have been interested in the real thing ever since.
