my question is how do we change things, because im sure there has to be others that dont fall under "sniper" but enjoy playing a BA marksmen and being able to run at the higher fps limit.

Who do I need to sleep with around here to make things happen!

it's not a "sniper course" so much as a "high fps rifle safety course"

Whether you're hunting deer or shooting paper targets, you still need a PAL to acquire a rifle lol

Honestly unless most of your kills are in the 200-300ft range, there's really not a big advantage to having higher fps.

If your local scene recognizes this system, then the "only" way is to spend your own time, money, and gas to get yourself certified.

Get a few people together, build a course and start running it.

Take Toronto's BA certification course.... no one "gave" them permission to start running it. Some people got together and started running it, talked to local fields to have it enforceable, and everything fell into place.

A qualification like that becomes "legit" simply as a matter of course over time, as there are no governing bodies to oversee these courses.

So get out there and make it happen, 'cause no one else is going to take care of it for you.

Sounds good Dave I'd have no issues going down to your field and doing it there. Like hell I'm driving down to Toronto to get it done, unless akira wants to pitch in for gas :P please not I don't have a Prius I have a V8 F150. A trip from northbay to brace bridge and back was $74 not including the $60 to get from Sudbury to northbay and back.

Here's a solution that everyone will like;
1) move to alberta
2) get paid more
3) gas is cheaper here anyway!

All you will have to do is keep an eye on the games and events section of the forum for upcoming sniper clinics in your area. I know our local guy Sha Do is on hiatus for a lil bit but we do have some assitant instructors and such in the area as well so I'm sure there will be one in the near future in the GTA for sure.

Snipers are a position in any MILSIM that can make a big difference in any game. Military Simulations can be beat summed up as" There are good ways to do things, the military way EH !" so it makes sense to have these positions. I play the sniper/recon and it is so much fun being 2 feet away from an unsuspecting enemy that I am about to make him pee his camo's !!!!!!!!!!

He wan't impressed but I was in heavwen
