Speaker: Maj. John L. Plaster, USAR, (Ret.), Author of The History of Sniping & Sharpshooting and The Ultimate Sniper
Moderators: Mark Keefe (Editor-in-Chief, American Rifleman) and Joseph L. Kurtenbach (Assistant Editor, American Rifleman).
The war in Afghanistan is a long-range rifleman's war, there's no hiding that. Expansive deserts, wide valleys and towering mountains offer seemingly unlimited visibility, meaning forces on both sides try to avoid close-range engagements. Retired USAR Maj. John Plaster will discuss the evolving theater of war in Afghanistan and offer his professional analysis on the state of the "Sniper War." Join Mark Keefe and Joseph Kurtenbach in welcoming Maj. Plaster to the 2012 NRA Annual Meetings on April 14.
