A marksman or sharpshooter, and expert rifleman, is a person who is skilled, and qualified in precision shooting, using projectile weapons, usually with a rifle but most commonly with a designated marksman rifle or, in the employment as a sniper, a sniper rifle, to shoot at long range targets. Note that all but sniper are firearm qualifications on the range, while the sniper is an actual job and is chosen from the elite of the expert rifleman qualification; very rarely, a person qualified as a sharpshooter may be chosen to enter the sniper training program.
