  • Amazing

    by XhellX

    Amazing for sniper g

  • Great!

    by AirborneDM

    This has helped me become a much better marksman. If it were possible, I would give this a 4.9 because the only thing wrong with it is a few grammar errors.

  • Good value

    by Joe998a

    Great insight for the beginner shooter, but there are some obvious spelling and grammar errors throughout. Also, navigation when zoomed is awkward on the iPad, u have to unzoom before u can turn the page.

  • Great reference!

    by Camotez

    This app does a great job at showing the proper shooting positions and technique! I highly recommend it for paintball players too, as the camouflage system is easily utilized for the marksman. Overall great buy, for the plinker, hunter, or special forces operative! 

    by 4-6IN Sniper

    I've been an army sniper for 4 years now, and im wrapping up my second tour in Iraq in 2 months. This is one heck of a handy app. As a sniper theres a lot to know, which means theres alot to forget, if you dont stay on top of you game certain things can slip your mind. This is a big hhelp. Especially when refreshing the new guys.

  • Genuine army manual

    by wittenburg door

    It's great to have a field manual in this format.

  • Great Read!

    by Pwn3dlol

    After getting off COD4:MW2 I, being a slightly overweight 14 yearold have the same fantasy as all others, being a sniper... Very worth the buy :)
