the first comment is the best, after the article:
Bud Light Presents... Real Men of Genius.

(~*Reeeal Mennn of Geniuuussss*~)

Today we salute you, Mr. Unappreciated and Uncredited Spotter Guy.

(~*Mr. Unappreciated and Uncredited Spotter Guy!*~)

Any 12 year old can put the crosshairs on the target. But YOU put the math on the crosshairs, and tell your buddy how to make the clicky adjustments of doom.

(~*Which cargo pocket did I put my TI-89 in?*~)

You do trigonometry in your sleep, calculate windage and distance just by feeling the wind on your eyeball, and routinely make the Coriolis Effect your bitch!

(~*Wicked windy, super far, a buncha mils, send it!"*~)

And do you get mentioned in a single article about the extreme-distance shots, or how hard it is to do ballistics math on a battlefield? Of course not.

(~*They all think "there's an Aaaaapp for that"!*~)

So crack open an ice cold Bud Light, oh Sheldon Cooper of the infantry. Because why get all the girls, glory, and news attention, when you can carry the 1 for your buddy...

(~*Mr. Unappreciated and Uncredited Spottttter Guyyyyy!*~)

I remember when the story on this sniper and his rifle first broke. Posted here a few times.

A short video on the new (at the time of the shot) rifles:

2-3X the costs of a Barrett 50. for a .338 just does not seem right. Barrett sells its .338 for under 5K, how much better is the AI???? IIRC .338s have an incredibly short service life too.

GOOD ONE

I wouldn't know, I've not used either myself.

But AI rifles do have a fantastic reputation for quality, and of course accuracy.

AWESOME POSSUM !!!




Do you remember back , just after 9-11 , that Bud changed it ( rightfully so ) to Real Men Of Genius , from their original title of "Real American Heroes "

This , and others like it , about men and women doing incredible things in battle , could rightfully be used to bring back the original 'jingle' .

Oh man classic. One of the funniest things I've read in a long while, because it's so true.

Never hear a damn thing about the spotter.

Few things make my day more than the thought of a single bullet slicing throug a terrorist from afar, leaving the rest to wonder where it came from, and who is next.

Terrorists. May they all get sniped.
