Who's a Sniper?

I was just wondering how many 1000yd shooters there are in America. No disrespect to anyone overseas intended. I believe there are more snipers per capita in this country than any country in the world.
If you have shot 3/4 minute or better at greater than 800 yds please post a yipper in reply to this thread.
I am curios because I believe it would be nearly impossible to take this country without paying an unacceptable price.

God bless America and its silent sniper force who practices long range shooting on a daily basis.

BTW, Yep!

Re: Who's a Sniper?

For as being a good shot r in most cases better than most. Then most every one on this forum that take shooting seriously. But for as calling any of one that shoots good a snipers is way off. Not even close to the same thing.

But if you want to see how many guys have r can shoot 3/4 moa at 800 r better then there r a lot of guys that can do this on here and other forums.

yep i have but don't want to try it with the chance of getting shot for doing it. I'll let the real snipers have that job and title.

Re: Who's a Sniper?

I shoot paper and animals. Snipers shoot people and target objects in tactical situations where peoples lives are on the line. I call my self a Long range hunter and a recreational shooter. As was previously posted there is a certain amount of respect that comes with the "Sniper" designation. Most people in the military dont earn the title, because it is a position of respect and also great responibility. lets not down play the role of the military's elite.

I apoligize if I sound harsh, but I really feel that respect is due.

the truth of the mater is that if any powerful countries decided to war all the fighting would be done by a computer technitian.

Im a Canadian by the way.

The shooting is only part of it. If your a hunter on top of it, your getting closer. It'd be a smaller leap than most of the rest of the population. It still would be a pretty good leap to achieve the level of skill of a military sniper. It still wouldn't stop me from picking off invaders if I could.

Had a chance to do it in the Army but took an early out instead. Had the chance come sooner in my enlistment it would have been a different story.

Don't insult snipers. There's a hell of a lot more to being a sniper than being able to shoot at long distance.

Re: Who's a Sniper?

I can almost tell you with certainty, that who ever is a sniper on this forum, won't tell you he's a sniper. It's kind of a private practice.

Wild Rose,
Don't think he meant any disrespect. I think he is just curious.

Re: Who's a Sniper?

EDIT a person who fails to understand that vegetarian ungulates don't carry guns and shoot back. Only about one percent of the population actually serves in the military and of those about 9 percent are in one of the combat arms. So in the end only about one tenth of one percent of this country population actually serves in combat.
