Sniping is a verb that is done by qualified H.O.G.'s - Hunters of Gunmen. They are professionally trained snipers and they make the battlefield a living hell for the enemy.
In Vietnam they averaged a kill ratio of 1:7 - that is one kill for every 7 rounds fired by US forces in Vietnam.
Basically it is what every long range shooter wishes they could do. A cold bore, long range, on target hit.

Welcome to the board.
QUOTED FOR TRUTH!!
We have no H.O.G.'s on this forum, with the possible exception of two guys I know through PM and postings. A "sniper" is a specialized skillset that is owned by probably 1/100th of the people on line who claim it.
I know as much about combat/military sniping as anyone out there through a library the size of a standard bedroom, but I am FAR from even being a P.I.G., let alone a H.O.G.
