ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the long-range markmanship (LRM) course aimed at soldiers training at Fort Benning in Georgia. Sniper students learn to fire at 800 to 1,000 meters, but the intermediate range was left void, said Captain Mark Messerschmitt, commander of C Company, 2nd Battalion. The class stands out because the subject matter experts train students directly, rather than a train-the-trainer approach.
