this my first instuctable so be nice :)

Step 1: ghille suit

you dont really need a ghille suit to be a good sniper but it helps you to blend in with the eviroment around you. they are not to excpencive around £80 up to £200
<p>I agree with MacSuibhne, there are too many of these airsoft guides on Instructables. This one makes some good points, you don't go into much detail, but the basics are there. </p><p>Personally I wouldn't use full face as a sniper, but eye protection is the most important thing! I would recommend MIL spec goggles / glasses especially, because they are approved by the military they are guaranteed to protect you from any BB hits! Since you are a sniper you probably won't be getting hit as much or at least not from close range and a mesh half face can be restrictive and uncomfortable so I would say at least get a shemagh or neoprene mask (or wear both) but never leave your mouth vulnerable and exposed either because you could have a tooth chipped or knocked out! </p><p>Also, if you do want to get a ghillie suit I think Helikon ones are good value! &pound;58 from Military1st.co.uk and you get trousers, shirt and a hood / veil thingy. I think a rifle wrap might come with it but I'm not sure.</p>
<p>Tactical Kit is a very good website for goggles or glasses by the way!</p>
good review
what grenade is that ive never seen one of those before
you can get them on kapowwe for $8
sweet do you know how they work, if so how?
i made my own ghille suit (well im still working on it) but i unfortuntaly couldnt get fish net so i got bird netting and it doesnt look so nice, so GET FISH NETTING.
i dont think a full face mask sniping is a great idea
i snipe and i use a full mask. works fine.
Personal experiences as an airsoft sniper: Just carry an extra mag (My rifle holds 20 rounds), and you should be fine. I have a lightweight spring pistol as a backup (Stinger P9). It has a bb well in the back, so with 100 rounds it's a very nice back up. Cheap, too. I like the review by the way.
At least you know what your on about, half the people on instructables seem to think that a .20g bb with a muzzle velocity of 500fps will go further than a .30g bb going 475fps.
Everyone was wearing fingerless gloves Whoaaaaaoaaaaaoh !
&nbsp;That's not an ACOG, it's an aimpoint sight.
shhh dont argue with the all powerful author he might smite you :O
Yeah I was wondering about that...<br />
Right some (hopefully you will see it this way!) constructive criticism.<br /> First, the entire &quot;Airsoft XXXXXX&nbsp;101&quot;&nbsp;thing is on here far too many times already, and from what I have read a lot of them are patchy. You have some decent information in here but it is again lacking in some areas where it is good in others. <br /> I like how you discussed the impact of different weight BBs in your rifle, even if it was a little short, you have the right idea with regards speed and accuracy.<br /> However, when you say &quot;dont get to high with ammunition or it coud clog up your barrel and nakker it&quot;, I feel you have misunderstood something somewhere!&nbsp;<br /> The 0.26 and 0.3 - that is grams, the SI unit of mass. The diameter of the BBs should be roughly the same for all decent brands (5.95-5.98mm with tolerences in the range of +- 0.03 or so if you are using 6mm) and no manufacturer would make the heavier BBs too big to fit your barrel ;)<br /> The rest of what you said is good, but more detail would be nice. Until then it doesn't really stand out among the other guides I have seen as there is far too little in the way of solid information or disscussion.<br />
&nbsp;I like the tree holding a gun!
It's hard to be nice when your first instructable sucks so much.<br />
