    The old Marksmanship Manual? You oughta see the video that comes with it. about 2, 2.5 hours, I think. I got it from a torrent a couple-three years ago or so.

    No information on making sandbags in it though :mamoru:

    Really though, what's so hard about filling a bag with dirt (well, 70-80%), folding the open end under, and stacking it?
    For details on sandbag fortifications, look for the Engineers Field Manual.

    well, the original plan was to fill a few ziplock bags with kitty litter, and duct tape the edges
    so, googling "diy shooting sandbags" results in that

    We have some old ones of the Engineers Field Manuals floating around at work that even have the formula to get safe distance from tactical nukes. :eek3:

    That's pretty cool. All I have is .pdf files of FM 21-100 and some others, in 3 or 4 editions from ~WW2 until maybe the 1980s or early 1990s. Interesting to compare the different editions sometimes.
