Hey guys,

Here's a tip for all those NSF guys who are planning to get marksmanship for their ATP. Its old news already, but I'd wanna stress this out: Take your heaviest lens and aim at one point for 10 mins every day. For me I attached my 500mm f4L to my camera and aimed at one point for that amount of time. In the end at the range, ATP was so easy. Scored 100% for my ATP! With M16, not SAR21 some more! Easy money too. :bsmilie:

Hope this helps!

Cheers,
Nick

Technique no good? Hold your rifle against your shoulder, elbows closer to body. When aiming, hold ur breath. Squeezing the trigger also need to hold your breath.

I think most people when shooting in ATP are abit nervous ... staying claim and have a gd zeroing is really important . Take yr time to pin down the target and everything should be easy .

$200 no problem lah :bsmilie:

at night should be easier i think coz first round tracer after u nail down yr target with the first round then firm up yr support and lock yr position and just keep tapping ( sounds like cheat code ) u shouldnt miss yr target because it otot
