Well odd you think I never shouldered a rifle...well I have sorry to disappoint you...actually I bet I've fired more powerful weapons than
Please do tell... and be specific, with model and caliber...
Secondly, We didn't win WW2 through any military Genius just proves you have NO clue about how combat is waged.
Regardless of what some text book and hollywood movie would have you think, WWII, just like any other war, is a matter of attrition... Can one side
kill enough of the enemy, and destroy enough of thier material to make it impossible for them to continue? We won, simply because we had the superior
industrial capacity to make more weapons and field more equipped troops than Germany did... and were helped out immensely by the fact that Russia had
killed off the vast majority of German troops in the first place.
I have no clue what your hardon about snipers is. I never said that a war was won with snipers. I do know a sniper, and I also do know that women have
traditionally been employed as snipers in combat, owning to thier better depth perception and ranging finding abilities than men. That certainly gives
women a wide open niche for combat!
By the way, Heidi Smith is the instructor for the Precision Rifle Course (sniper course) at Thunder Ranch... and I have seen her make head shots in
excess of 1000 meters. Repeatedly.
Dragonrider, go back to whatever Military academy you came from....you obviously missed a lot.
I am not military. Never claimed to be. Never wanted to be.
I do however have a burning desire to stay alive and protect my family. I have trained beside law enforcement officers and SWAT officers from around
the country, people who face enemy fire on a FAR more regular basis than the average soldier.
Military Academies have precious little to do with combat, or even "how to win a war". They are massively geared towards discipline and the military
I am interested in staying alive, and so take a more central view of what to do when bullets start coming at me.. And what to do with my bullets.
