Army training

December 13, 2016

The AMU has a very unique relationship with 3rd Ranger Battalion snipers. In the late 1990s, the 3rd Ranger Battalion Snipers began to work closely with the AMU. The snipers were able use AMU’s ranges, getting hands on instruction on alternate shooting positions, and calling wind adjustments. The Platoon Sergeant at the time, SFC Lindsay Bunch, believed that if his snipers could master these alternate positions, they would be more effective on the battlefield, where a perfectly stabilized bipod-supported firing position is rarely available.
