Giri | 4 years ago | Reply @GURU: Most army men are supposed to shoot well. That is their day job. In every army there are many snipers who are good shooting. So that is also given. Most Armies have that. There is onlyh one way to separate best from good. And that is Olympic, world and Asian championships. That is where only best can compete and we select best 3.
