Marksman
A MARKSMAN is a person who is skilled in precision shooting , using projectile weapons, usually with a rifle but most commonly with a designated marksman rifle or a special application rifle , to shoot at long range targets. In popular and historical usage, "sharpshooter " and "marksman" are considered synonyms. Within the shooting sports and military usages today, however, sharpshooter and marksman refer to distinctly different levels of skill, which are never conflated. Specifically, in the US Army, "marksman" is a rating below "sharpshooter" and "expert". Four levels of skill are generally recognized today in both military and civilian shooting circles: unqualified, marksman, sharpshooter, and expert. Marksmanship badges for the three qualified levels are commonly awarded to both civilian and military shooters who attain proficiency in shooting higher than "unqualified"
