The Fundamentals
BY DOUG JEFFREY

W

E SHOOT FOR
A NUMBER OF
REASONS.
For some, it’s a
way to relax.
Others like the thrill of competition
and hunting. Many want to challenge
their skills to see how good they can
become. And those who enter law
enforcement—on the local or federal
level—or the military, hone their skills
to protect Americans.
For all of the above, one common
thread is a mastery of the fundamentals.

WHERE IT STARTS
Recently, I had the pleasure of watching
the U.S. Marine Corps’ pre-scout sniper
course at Camp Pendleton. Staff Sergeant
Matthew Solowynsky, a sniper instructor,
said the fundamentals are accentuated
heavily with new students.
“Fundamentals are stressed at boot
camp and at the rifle range with the standard M4,” he said. “Here [during the
course], the fundamentals become more
paramount, because the farther back
you shoot, the smallest error can be
magnified.”
On that sunny Southern California
morning, he gave an example.
“Let’s say we have a student shooting at
300 yards, and he might not have the best
trigger control. Maybe he pushes more
than he pulls.
“As he shoots from farther back, that
round is going to shift more and more as it

has more distance to travel, because there
is more time for the wind to come into
play. At 300 yards, he might be off by a
half-inch, which is no big deal. He thinks,
‘I hit the target; I’m good.’
“When he goes to 900 and 1,000, however, that half-inch might be 12 inches.
Now, he is missing the target, because he
does not have trigger control down. That’s
why the fundamentals are stressed.”

EXCELLENCE, USMC STYLE
I asked the 10-year corps veteran what
makes a good Marine sniper.
“It is important to apply the fundamentals consistently every single time,” he said.
“That means the proper placement of the
shoulder, proper body positioning, proper
breathing, proper trigger control, doing the
same thing every time. It’s important to
build a system and a pre-shot checklist.”
Solowynsky pointed out that a sniper
should also have a mental checklist he
reviews.
“For example, if he loads his ammo
with his left hand, it has to be every single
time. If he starts to do this with his right
hand, he might shift his shoulder, which
could impact accuracy.”

ROUTE TO SUCCESS
In the USMC pre-scout sniper course,
the path to excellence begins with the
fundamentals. Regardless of what course
you intend to take—whether it’s plinking,
hunting or competition—that’s not a bad
path to get on. GW

STORY BY TIM STETZER PHOTOS BY JIM HOLMAN

M

AN HAS ALWAYS
BEEN concerned
about things that go
bump in the night.
In order to bump
back, though, you need to be able to see
what is out there.
Since that first time early man stepped
away from the fire with his torch and club
to see what was threatening his family,
humans have sought better ways to light up

the night and more-efficient ways to integrate that capability into weapons.
Attaching lights to firearms is nothing
new, either. I’ve seen the occasional oddball
piece pop up over the years—from flintlockmounted lanterns to the early 20th-century
Night Sight for Firearms, invented by
George A. Seely of San Francisco in 1911, to
the 1960s-era High Standard M-10 bullpup
shotguns, with their big Kel-Lites attached
on top.

Gun-mounted lights have really come
into their own over the past 20 years, especially with the advent of powerful lithium
batteries and long-lasting LED bulbs. These
were once the domain of high-speed military and police units, but the average
shooter now has available a wide selection
of durable lights at reasonable prices.
One of those lights that offers a great
mix of features and affordability is the PL-1
Valkyrie from Olight.
