In the right hands, they are capable of delivering a bullet with pinpoint accuracy from up to half a mile away. Ever since the discovery of rifling, SHARPSHOOTERS AND LONG RANGE WEAPONS have occupied a unique place in the TALES OF THE GUN.
It is the ultimate pairing of man and gun to create a single, deadly weapon. While many guns stake their claim to fame on ease of use and efficiency in less-than-perfectly skilled hands, the extraordinary weapons used by sharpshooters can only be effectively used by the most highly trained and accomplished hands. And what they can accomplish is extraordinary.
TALES OF THE GUN chronicles the exploits of sharpshooters in every conflict since the Revolutionary War, introducing the legendary triggermen and getting an up-close look at the firearms they used to change the course of battles and history.
See how sharpshooters have become an integral part of SWAT teams nationwide, and head out on the target range to see the world's best shooters in action.
From the battlefield to the range, this is a sweeping look at SHARPSHOOTERS AND LONG RANGE WEAPONS.
