This is my opinion but, as we have seen in other investigations and documents provided by our own military guys, Expert a marksman qualification is somewhat easy to get. When I say this, I mean in the way that it takes to train on the guns.
Then these guys can produce a cert saying I qualified as an Expert marksman. Honestly, if I wasn't currently being educated by bullshido and others about the military I would buy the story.
You get Expert Marksman qualified on a weapon then, you can run around lying and most people won't know what it entails. Then as a "special ops" guy you can throw around the "I'd have to kill you" or "Confidential" line to avoid producing real documents.
Again this is my opinion not a fact.
