Thank you JARHEAD. I get a little sick of the word being misused, people use it out of ignorance as a way of labeling something evil (reporters and now hunting editors). The correct label would be trained marksman, or in most people's case armed irregulars.OK, I have to throw in my $.02. After reading the first several posts, the word "Sniper" was thrown around several times. A person is a Sniper only after he has been formally trained as a Sniper. I'm willing to bet that 90% of the guys that claim to be Snipers, aren't even close to qualifying as one. I was trained as a Designated Marksman, not a Sniper. Besides, hunting is not Sniping. Your target can't shoot back.
If this was covered in another post, sorry about the repeat.
So with that said, when is it Sniping...when you're a Sniper! LOL
gun)---Now this guy is a Sniper!
That is the look of sheer determination.
