So did I think he looked right at home. Didn't look at the scope but it could have been an S&B or maybe a Swaro.
The Soviet Union has some very technologically advanced stuff. Take a look at their nuclear powered ice breakers. for instance. Cruise to the North Pole in complete comfort and break through 20 foot thick ice. Amazing power. Bunch of You Tube vids on their nuclear powered ice breakers. Everyone has their'accidents' though. The Kursk disaster and Chernobyl come to mind right away but we had the Challenger explosion so no one is perfect, especially when it comes to complex systems and man's intervention.
I have a lot of respect for Putin. He's not going to be intimidated by anyone and he rules with an iron hand. I'd like to see that kind of forcefullness in this country's politics. Won't say anymore as this isn't a political forum... He looked just fine with the rifle.
Trump should trump this...... I'd love to see an American president back up the second amendment in a big way! Maybe banging steel with a custom, made in the USA rifle at 1000 yards...... or would that be too "my bombs bigger than your bomb"?
Hmmm. Kinda trying to determine what you mean by your post.
He is shooting right handed in the photo...but that may really be his other left. Strange.
Helpful Hint : If you watch his left arm in the video you will miss what he is doing with his right arm.Hope this helps.
