    Call to Duty.

    Since we have more and more professionals visiting the site, I would like to put out a general invitation. If you are currently a designated sniper or have been in the past, and have had the opportunity to evaluate various types of gear (optics, rifles, and ammunition) the SC staff would be very interested in any reviews you might wish to submit. We do not coddle manufacturers here. If a product sucks, we want to know about it. If a sniper can not live without it, we also want to know about it. Your writing skill is irrelevant as we are more concerned with getting good information to our readers than we are with perfect syntax. If you think you have something valuable to say, please consider dropping us a line.

    One of our goals is to keep those in the field abreast of new developments in the trade, as well as providing reviews of material and equipment relevant to sniper operations. While the Roster is a fun place to hang out, the real meat and potatoes of this site is the information provided on the main page. If you have experience and are willing to share it please consider submitting your thoughts for posting in the Reviews or Articles sections. We are looking primarily for sniping related data garnered from professional experience. While hunting and bench techniques are interesting, they are not the main direction of this site. If you have valuable lessons (on gear or tactics) you are willing to share with fellow officers or military personnel (keeping in mind civilians read the page) please consider submitting material.

    We try to maintain a free flow of information to interested parties but we understand some things are best kept within the community. We are not asking you to divulge information that can come back to bite an officer on a call-out or give away classified data. But we would like to see more information dealing with what works for you and what does not. Equipment needs for the Law Enforcement officer on an SRT, ERT or SWAT team may vary. While most procurement decisions are made with common sense there is some real crap on the market and some bad information to go along with it. If you feel you have something valuable you can relate to others who share your job description, please consider dropping us a line.
