No sir in no way was I trying to mock you. I have more respect for you than alot of people i know. After what you have gone threw to be in the position you are in rite now is truly inspiring to me. I respect all soldiers but i have another level of respect for the ones that go the extra mile and not only passing sniper school but becoming an instructor is by far a great achivment!

Oh. Thank ya

It's an honor. I might be a Recruiter or Drill Sergeant if it weren't for the scars and burns everywhere. It has it's downfalls (the scars from burns). Any videos or photos that they take of my unit either have me missing or as a "Classified" individual.

Sorta sucks, but I'm not in my position for fame, so I couldn't give two ****s

Snipers are the ghosts of the battlefield so why worry about pictures haha. What is the weapon of choice for you in the field? (off topic) im just curious because you said cheytec in the earlier post and i am a big fan of them.

That depends....

In an urban area with readily available cover and possibly multiple targets, I like the M110 or SR-25. These allow for multiple engagements at a solid 600M.

In a more open, even rural area, I like the M24 SWS. Although a bolt gun, I've been able to engage 1-4 targets at up to 1200M. It is more than capable of these types of engagements.

Finally, in any type of area, if the mission dictates disabling vehicles, shooting through vehicles, or even thin walls, I like the Chey Tac .408 or the Barret .50 BMG. Big cartridge in a semi auto platform

I have used an AR 10 .308 for urban training and a mossburg .207 for semi long range. I did have one class on stopping an enemy in a vehicle by not only neutralizing the driver and passengers but also disableing the vehicle. Out of the two i liked the ar 10 much better because of the semi auto and the capability to shoot just as far as the .207 without having to use the bolt. Also the mag holds more. Those are some of my expeiriences haha nothing compared to the real deal. A few bucks here and there for tactical classes keeps me happy for now.

AR-10 is a pretty good weapon. Ive got my own. Never used it to shoot through a car windshield though. Always relied on the .338 Lapua or .50
