OK first off THESE ARE NOT EFFING SNIPERS and defiantly not some ***** CANADIAN SNIPERS. Unless you call a longhaired guy named Tim with a Win model 70 in 243 and Dave who has a few 22-250 AI custom built rifles SNIPERS. This is a rock chuck shooting video well it is a segment of rock chuck shooting out of a 3 hour varmint hunting movie. Oh and since when did the military even canadian start using a white chevy and a red dodge pick-up to get to their "SNIER HIDE".

I personally know the guys that made the dam video. STOP saying it is a sniper video.

You people are effing stupid. Since when does a terrorist sun him self on top of the rock in the middle of Colorado? Since when is a terrorist weigh 25# and have fur al over his body.

Next time do some dam research before posting a video.

Rocky Mountain Varmint Hunters

Your right I am pissed off why because you people are stealing from two good guys that worked their butts of making these videos and are kind enough to share their fun with us.

If you want to see the real video shell out the money and buy Varmint Safari II and then you will see the real video and it is about 15 minutes into the 3 hour movie.

This just gets my goat every time I see it.

Easy Tango - Geez. You need a hug me thinks.

That e-mail has been going around, probably, since two weeks after the guys made their video, so it's not like CCW357 was stealing from them. He just got something that he thought was cool, probably sent to him by someone else, and posted it.

Honest Mistake.....

But I agree, it's not a sniping video....

Closed for obvious reasons.
