Firsthand information for both aspiring and expert snipers!

Navy SEAL Sniper is a revised, updated, and full-color edition of The 21st-Century Sniper.

The sniper is a battlefield threat second to none. Mastering the art of marksmanship is critical but is only part of what makes a Navy SEAL sniper. The modern sniper follows in the long line of warriors that have time and again faced the enemy alone. Snipers must be able to apply the craft in an urban environment or alone on a hostile mountain top with equal effectiveness. Today's sniper has to not just leverage technological advances but have the foreknowledge to select the best rifle and gear for the mission. Increasingly, he must have the mental toughness to adapt to a constantly changing environment, gather intelligence, and truly act as a force multiplier.

In this in-depth look through the eyes of former Navy SEAL sniper instructor Brandon Webb and fellow Navy SEAL sniper Glen Doherty, the authors reveal the fundamentals of not just marksmanship, but the science of shooting, stalking, and camouflage, and how technological advances have changed the training and increased the effectiveness of the modern sniper. Including maritime, helicopter, and urban sniper operations, this updated edition also goes into detail on the latest research, development, testing, and evaluation of weapons and optics. From the basics like compensating for wind and bullet drop, to camouflage and placing yourself or your team in the best position to take a photo or pull a trigger, Webb and Doherty cover the critical elements that comprise the twenty-first century sniper.

About the Author:

Glen Doherty (1970–2012) was a combat-decorated SEAL who served in the U.S. Navy for nine years. He worked extensively as an independent security specialist throughout some of the most dangerous places on the planet, all in support of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. Glen was KIA in Benghazi, Libya, in 2012, when his team came to the rescue of the U.S. Ambassador and State Department personnel after their safe house was attacked by an overwhelming force and under intense fire. Glen believed in working hard and playing harder; before giving up his life, he was frequently found skiing in Utah or surfing at his home break in Encinitas, California.

Brandon Webb is a former combat decorated U.S. Navy SEAL Chief Petty Officer. He served combat tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere. His last tour of duty was as the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Course Manager, the same course that graduated Marcus Luttrell and Chris Kyle, where he graduated over three hundred SEAL sniper students. Glen and Brandon served together at SEAL Team 3 and trained together in the SEAL sniper program, where they became lifelong friends. Brandon is author of the New York Times bestseller The Red Circle. He lives in Lake Tahoe, Nevada, where he runs SOFREP.com and continues to write.

SEAL Team 3 Chief Chris Kyle (1974–2013), author of the New York Times bestseller American Sniper, served four combat tours in Iraq and elsewhere. For his bravery in battle, he was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps Commendation. Following his combat deployments, he became chief instructor for training Naval Special Warfare Sniper and Counter-Sniper teams, and he authored the Naval Special Warfare Sniper Doctrine, the first Navy SEAL sniper manual. A native Texan, he devoted much of his spare time to helping disabled veterans. Chief Kyle is survived by his wife and their two children.
