Hey,
I'm new to the CF, i'm just about to finish my QL2 course as a reservist. When i finnish my school I was thinking about going Reg force, my goal is to enter sniper training. I'm curious if you have to be hand picked for this training or if you can just enter the course and see if you have the brass to finnish. If anyone has some info on the subject please let me know. Thanks

I heard that you are picked to go on the course and have to be a good shot with your C7 to get on. However you'll never make it on that course while your in the reserves, gotta go Reg Force first.

How's the weather in Newfieland? Where else besides St. John's is the RNR?

There is a guy that i went throught battleschool with who got to take part in a sniper course as a reservist but he did not get to do all parts of the course. The course is very expensive, sometimes too expensive for the reserve units to spend on one soldier. Your best bet is to join your unit's rifle team if there is one and shoot as much as you can. Participate in CFSAC if you can....that is where he was when he was offered the course.
