Re: Sniper Rifle Advice for my screenplay
Rant mode on...
Have any of you tried to find factual gun books lately?
At Barnes and Noble.com I found 3, only one of which looks like it might have any information. Amazon.com had more, and none of were about particular rifles or calibers. Public libraries seem to only carry books about the history of firearms anymore.
These are the generally the resources that non-shooters will try to use if they are looking for information, and may get frustrated by the lack of information. Those of us who do shoot generally know where we can find these books and other sources of information such as message boards. Afterall, how many of the members here would have known about rounds such as the 40 Diaperhead, 338 Lapua Magnum, or the 408 Cheyenne Tactcal if they had not found this forum?
If this 'movie' turns out to be another gun bashing fest, then maybe someone should come up with a movie that shows the fallacies of the screenwriter/actor/liberal/anti-gun people that think the first amendment is the only one that applies. I'm sure there are enough shooters and hunters that could donate enough cash to make it possible.
By the way clg9mm, like a 15 year old psycho can afford or LEGALLY purchase the types of firearms that are typical of shooters on this forum.
If anti-gunners are relying on information from a bulletin board to try to perpetuate their agenda, that tells me they are EXTREMELY desperate and that we are winning the war on our rights.
Pointing someone in the direction of truthful, and hopefully unbiased information is the best thing we can and should do.
