SFC (Retired) Emil Praslick is recently retired from the United States Army, where he served as the Head Coach of the United States Army Marksmanship Unit. Emil has also been the Head Coach of the US National Long Range Rifle Team, and a coach on the US F-Class National Team. In his Military career, Emil amassed more team wins than any coach in US Military shooting history, as well as 20 National and International records, and 33 Inter-Service Rifle Championships. Emil was also responsible for many of the advanced training techniques and marksmanship training doctrine currently in use by the US Army, specializing in long range shooting and wind reading. A 2008 Sports Illustrated article said that Emil “may well be the best wind reader in the world.” He is currently the Business Development Manager for Tactical Sales for Berger Bullets and still an active long range shooter and coach.
