American Sniper Assoc. Releases New Training DVD

July 13, 2006  | 

The American Sniper Association’s new training DVD, Glass 2 – Specialty Glass, teaches snipers how to handle shooting through various types of glass.

Intermediate barriers rank high on the list of concerns for operational snipers. There is a need to be able to accurately identify the type of glass used in a particular application. There is also a need to find a reliable round to defeat those barriers. These are the issues addressed in Glass 2.

The ASA staff looks at special glass applications, such as vehicle glass, airplane windshields, train windshields, and hurricane glass. The glasses are shot with a variety of ammunition designed specifically for use against intermediate barriers. Important technical issues such as breakage, spalling characteristics, and patterns are captured on film. Conclusions and ammunition recommendations complete the video study.

This DVD is essential information for sniper teams wanting to gain documentation on bullet performance against the various barriers they are most likely to encounter on tactical operations.
