GPSTC Offers Police Countersniper Level 1

The Georgia Public Safety Training Center will be offering another Police Countersniper Level 1 course May 8 through May 12 at the main campus in Forsyth, GA.

On the first day, students will be required to produce a letter from their agency confirming their assignment as a countersniper.

This course is designed for officers assigned to countersniper, special response, or S.W.A.T. teams. It includes instruction on ballistics, lead, effects of weather, shooting at varying distances, use of cover, rifle and scope care and maintenance, and maintaining a data book.

During this course, students will participate in shooting exercises which feature moving target engagement, multiple targets, and decision reaction problems. Ammunition in calibers .223 and .308 will be furnished. If they use other calibers, students should bring 300 rounds of duty ammunition. Police Countersniper Level 1 focuses on marksmanship skills with the countersniper rifle.

 

Special Notes: Students need to bring a turret scoped countersniper rifle, shooting sling, cleaning gear, and other equipment used in these assignments.
