    Guerrilla Sniper By Gabe and Anthony James?

    Fry the Brain is a historical break down and Guerrilla Sniper is a How to.

    Both should be read.

    Guerilla Sniper is more of a how-to. It covers more of the shooting skills, but also addresses fieldcraft. Fry the Brain is all about fieldcraft. It's approach is largely historical, but with an eye to learning from the past for the future.

    I would also say to read both, but I would put Guerilla Sniper at the top of the list.

    From what I've gathered, in the tactical community, "hood rat" refers to individuals who are particularly in-tune with the fundamentals of how to apply violence, tactics, and tradecraft/fieldcraft at a professional level.

    I'll read both, but for my purposes atm, I think it's better to prioritize the fieldcraft as an "software" and "environmental awareness" upgrade if you will. Thank you for clarifying!

    There are also some threads here by Sua Sponte on sniping that should read as well.

    In the contexts I've seen it used, it was usually applied to urban thugs like gangbangers.

    I just checked the Urban Dictionary and it seems to refer to a promiscuous urban woman who will have sex with anyone, but not necessarily a professional.

    I'm mainly familiar with the term "hood rat shit," but that's funny.
