Special Session: Sniper War Afghanistan

Special Session: Sniper War Afghanistan


Session: "Sniper War Afghanistan"

Date: April 14, 2012
Time: 2 p.m.
Place: Room 275 (Level 2), America's Center Convention Complex, St. Louis, Mo.

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.
