Here's one of my countrymen from Finland (okay my grandparents countrymen) with one of my favorite guns. The Sako TRG-42...



Must just be a photo-op or training shot. No suit, plain black gun, etc.

Now for pure snow, I would rather have coveralls with some loose straps of some sort of cloth on it. Ghillie suit is just something to improve your silhouette and the human outline.


Come to a snowboarding forum and I end up talking about sniper shit . Also the ghillie suit posted above is horrible, the fake nylon shit sucks and puts off too much shine and even after completing a ghillie wash will not dirty up like you want. You want to use real natural jute fibers and then you only want to use about 50% of that on your ghillie suit. You want to use as much natural vegatation as possible, which you will also need to change out every half hour or so depending on how hot the weather is and the terrain. One of the things that we were taught in sniper school is veg up 10 times before taking 1 shot
Cool info.

For the purpose of laughs, those cheap ghillie suits are pretty great though. Nothing like doing some grocery shopping in a ghillie suit

Lol one of the guys in my unit is actually from Finland and served in the Finnish army before joining the American Army, Dude is nuts and is probably why we are friends.

That is most defiently a photo op lol. There are no natural black colors in nature and that dude would be seen from far away, you also never want to have any sort of perfect circle outlines when viewed from the front.

I've thought about wearing my ghillie suit on the mountain this year, I need to make a new one anyways so I wouldn't care if I trash it, plus it would be funny to come smashing out of the trees with a nerf sniper rifle

Got a buddy that wears a white jacket & pants combo. The jacket & pants have "treelike" lines running up and down. He disappears just standing next to the trees. Foursquare possibly......
