I was watching that MSNBC thing about the Rem. 700 triggers and they showed a quick clip of Border Patrol with some nice set ups. Could some one please elaborate on that more?

to snipe

They are only shooting the Mexicans that the Mexicans don't want to shoot.

To shoot people shooting at them.

Which they should do far more often.

Because certain members of the border patrol  are counter snipers

I think a more pertinent question would be " why wouldn't the BP have 'sniper rifles'"?
Link Posted: 10/27/2010 9:03:25 AM EDT
Why the hell not? You don't place armed men at the border without good marksmen to back them up or do counter-ops.
Link Posted: 10/27/2010 9:03:45 AM EDT
Uh, why shouldn't the Border Patrol have snipers?

Every other law enforcement agency has them.

Last thing we need in this country is illegal counters.

Logical... and yet... it seems that the justice department doesn't like our guys shooting at their guys.

Based on what we keep seeing in the news, that number seems to be quite low.

Border Patrol needs Rem 700s to look intimidating at their interstate check points and to waste the Minutemen watching the border.
Link Posted: 10/27/2010 9:08:24 AM EDT
I can't even believe this is a real question.

As far as I'm concerned the Border Patrol should have Apaches, M1 Abrams, smaws, and MLRSs too.






In fact, we should de-mothball the Paladin program just for them.

Under what circumstances does law enforcement use a sniper rifle and how does that map to the BP's activities?

They are sniping from the southern side. Snipe back.



Fuck I wish West was running for POTUS. He has the balls to pull out of Afghanistan and put those guys on our southern border and put the PAIN on the cartels.

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And, by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep

Here it is. Not for illegals. For Patriots guarding their own borders.

Thanks to eric and janet.

They don't get ammo , there for watching to make sure illegals cross safely.

The Army has almost a thousands M109A6s and will be upgrading them through the PIM program.

Sometimes you want to shoot somebody that is 800 meters away, and you just don't feel like walking that far.

Best answer so far!!
Link Posted: 10/27/2010 9:23:32 AM EDT
Others have answered the Sniper Rifle question. Nothing more to add other than:

I would vote to give them Claymore Mines. A few claymore ambushes on the Mules carrying drugs would put an end to that practice ASAP.

More or less.  Not sure when the BPS would react to a hostage or similar situation.  Seems more like a mission for local cops or sheriffs.

They are conducting paramilitary operations in open terrain against a well armed and well equipped enemy.

To not have rifles capable of engaging point targets out to extended ranges would be sheer idiocy.

Here are some border photos I've taken, just to show what they do -

Fence close to town:



This is the fence at the US/Mexico border a few miles away from a small town:

Because sometimes there just isn't enough cover close enough to the waterholes?
Link Posted: 10/27/2010 9:57:16 AM EDT
There is a lot of open country out there on the border... and it might be nice to have a rifle that can take advantage of that extended range.

I was doing vegetation and endangered species surveys on the border for the USBP several years ago and they had snipers on the hills above us for protection.  We were surveying for roads that would be used in drug interdiction,
