John Simpson – Former Sniper and Flash Recognition

John Simpson is a former US Army Sniper and instructor. John also teaches at SniperCraft alongside Derrick Bartlett, who was on Episode 187. I had a great talk with Derrick about “Tactical Blindness” and when I heard that John teaches a technique called “Flash Recognition,” I wanted to bring him on. Flash Recognition is a technique used with fighter pilots and has applications in the shooting/sniper world.
