I need to vent
Is anyone besides me frustrated by the over use of the words "Tactical" and "Sniper" these days.
A big part of this I thimk is marketting hype. Seems like if you paint something black and call it tactial you automatically get to charge extra... a lot extra!!
And I have gotten to where I cringe every time I hear Sniper.
Tactical by definition is nothing more than having a plan to achoeve a goal.
And thrre is very little glamour in waiting for an undetermined amount of time in heat or cold rain or snow to take a shot. You have to limit movement to avoid detection but you get cramps and need to relieve yourself... you get hungry and thirsty, your eyes get tired of squinting through optics. And the stress eats at you. Not for those with a weak constitution.
And a ghillie suit is heavy and snags on every thing...
BTW my od green socks were in the wash, sorry
An unarmed man can only flee from Evil and Evil is not overcome by fleeing it.
The proper use of a Pistol is to fight your way back to where you left your Rifle.
The best gun to have? ... The one in your hand when the fight starts!
Respect All - Fear None
