February 7-9 2014

Sgt. Major (ret) Mark Spicer is a 25-year veteran of the British Army with a worldwide reputation in the sphere of Sniping and Counter-Terrorism, which led to his selection and use as the US Governments Expert witness in the Washington DC Sniper trials a particular recognition of his reputation and knowledge when requested by an allied nation for such a high profile case. Mark has served worldwide with the British and UN forces on real world deployments, and has vast experience of counter terrorist operations and terrorist methods of operation. Mark has worked extensively thwarting the IRA in Northern Ireland and subsequent terrorist elements throughout the former Yugoslavia region and Eastern Europe. Working within both covert and overt units, he has gained a vast experience of covert surveillance operations, often working at very close proximity to known terrorists without their knowledge. He received an award from the Queen in recognition of his success during various counter terrorists operations.
As an instructor he has taught many of the world’s elite units and served as one of a small selected staff at the UK military Sniper School. In 2002 he was seconded to the French Foreign Legion, at their request, to help train their snipers during an operational deployment for the UN in Kosovo.
Mark attended and qualified as a USMC sniper deployment officer and advanced sniper while seconded to Quantico and as a German Army Alpine sniper after attending the class at their request. Since leaving the military he has trained a Middle Eastern Royal Guard counter sniper unit, Scandinavian sniper unit, international Special Forces units and many US Military and Law Enforcement units about emerging threats, snipers and SWAT teams and he continues to dedicate himself to passing on knowledge and skills to those who still serve.
Mark has held key business positions within the private sector since leaving military service including the Director of training for McMillan Firearms, Director of Training and co-founder of Craft International LLC. Marks skills in class design and methods of instruction make his classes a highly sought after commodity and his personable approach to training has seen him gather a large number of friends and admirers within the military and LE community. Mark is also the author of 3 successful books on the subject of sniping, co-authored another and continues to work on additional published articles and books and is a regular on the History Channel and Military Channel on specialist subjects.

Well crap, leave it to me to be on the wrong side of the world while this is taking place in my backyard. Good on you [MENTION=65491]Cuckler[/MENTION] for putting this together, hopefully there will be another one once I'm home for good.

There will be elements within this course that are not part of the traditional precision rifle curriculum. One of which is combat mindset, which is typically is not part of a standard precision rifle course. This does cross over to other disciplines within defensive marksmanship....

I never met Spicer,however his wife Dianne helped me put together my McMillian A-5 stock on my first build. She was very nice and knew her stuff. I also think she was a former LEO.

Some questions have been asked about if this is a one time class, or if future classes will be held....
There will be more classes scheduled in the near future. Some of the classes may be restricted to mil/le and some will be open enrollment.
Lpr is committed to provided tier 1 training to both civilians and mil/le and will continue to expose both customer bases to instructors with real world experiences.

I'll see everyone there. I live 4 minutes from the gate and my wife will probably be at her mother's so the house is open to anyone if needed. As long as you don't mind tripping over a 19 month old toys :)

Had a great class! Everyone shot really well.
This was not your typical precision rifle class. We covered the fundamentals of course, but mark showed the class through countless operational experiences the value of the entire sniper skill set. Shooting is just one of those skills. The subject matter covered was eye opening with respect to current foreign and domestic terror threats.
If you have any interest in learning how to shoot in a style that works for you and not the masses, outthink your enemy, protect your family, and survive....then keep an a
Eye out for this course in the future.

Was a really awesome class. Mark and John both did great and now I'm on the hunt for Groper fingers locally. Was an eye opener for sure, will definitely be in line for more advanced courses. Can't stop saying Wanker now also. The facility was great, well thought out and maintained. Wish there was a great place like that closer to me. Thanks again guys!

Not to rub it in but I'm 4 minutes from the gate :) it is a great place and John puts a lot of time into making it better every week. It has came a long way in a short period of time. It is awesome to have such a great place in my back yard. Going up there today for a little while and then a match tomorrow. Goal is not to be dead last! :)

With as much time as I put in practicing there I would hope I would always come in next to last. If I was a better shot I would no doubt be up top. 300rnds a week off barricades is a lot of shooting.
