  1. hola .os siguo desde españa . en otro articulo , podias presentar las armas , municion y si no les importa , a los tiradores . muy bueno . gracias

  2. If anybody were to offer, I would not turn down ANY of those guns.

    And any of the anti-gun nuts out there that whine about people owning guns, never, ever take into consideration sport shooting like this. To those idiots, the only reason to own a gun is to kill people.

    I guess this post pretty much blew that out of the water. Oh! Blew it out of the water, can I say that? Isn’t that too violent? bah!

  3. Sport sniping! WTF is sport sniping? Sniping the practice of killing by a concealed marksman. I know, I have been one. It is certainly not a sport. The label sport trivializes the killing of human beings.

  4. I’m actually kind of surprised to see the SVD hanging with the Accuracy International AW, DTA SRS and some of the other super accurised rifles shown, as it’s more of a sharpshooters rifle as opposed to a dedicated snipers rifle.

  5. Well,in my country,in crisis i hund in 500m.
    I take everything to Feed my family.
    Even a mouse is something easy pready for me.
    I am a.n 52 y.o. Civil Engineer and a GOOD SNIPER.
