Ok so this is an game of knowledge and information. The way it works is I post a picture name and other small piece of info about a sniper. The next person must then provide a little more info on that sniper then post another sniper to the thread with the picture name and info.
Example.
(me) Snipers name and picture,this sniper served in blank war and used blank as his rifle.
(you) info on last sniper. New sniper,picture, bit of info.
It will be fun learning about historys ghost soldiers and finding out new info on them.

Ill start.
Vasily Grigoryevich Zaytsev

Beware some of us smiling, kindly old folks.

Valentines Day, 1969. M14 rifle

Trez 02-17-2012 05:26 AM

He holds the record for the most confirmed kills by a USMC sniper, having recorded 103 confirmed kills and 216 "probable kills" in his 16 months of action. On Valentine's Day 1969, Mawhinney encountered an enemy platoon and killed 16 North Vietnamese Army soldiers with head shots from his M14 rifle. Served 1967-1970.

Mind if I propose a change to the rules? To make it into more of a game, I think it would be fun to have to identify the sniper and what war they served in... Post a picture, some info, and who ever gets it right goes next..

Something like this:

Fought for the Finnish army. Used a Mosin Nagant without the scope. Was shot in the lower jaw and survived.

This cute lady is now a fiery grandmother who still takes no **** from anyone. She also is one who has had a semi famous sniper duel.

Trip- I'll let someone else take a turn- but my grandaughter named her rifle after the lady in the photo....

C3, this is a terrible thing, I know her face, her story, and her record, but I can't remember her name!
