They are the men who guard the President. The U.S. Secret Service is a law enforcement agency like few others. The elite of the elite. Yet, even within their own ranks, they have special forces, so to speak.
A cigar friend of mine is an agent. I’ve seen him on TV with President-elect Trump. He has told me a little about the training these men receive.
Gat Daily and Guns.com both featured a video which highlites some of the trianing of Secret Service snipers. I suppose they are the best of the best as the leader of the free world depends on them. Please have a look:

They’ve had a few blemishes in the press the past few years. However these agents are dedicated to protecting the Commander In Chief. And they are highly trained to fulfill that unique mandate.
Most of us, here, are shooters. How good are you on the range, seriously? These guys have to be beyond good – on and off the range.
Their training not only involves weapons, but also tactics and prevention. They utilize full-scale city mockups so as to be ready for any challenge.
A sniper’s mission requires skill almost beyond what is humanly possible. This video is a testament to the Secret Service and their work.
And, I would not want to cross them. Be thankful, they work for us.
