Why is it when you run into the 350-400 pound mouth breathing neck beards at the lgs they ALWAYS say they were are is a sniper. Not only a sniper but black ops cia undercover squirrel sniper.

Because lying about being an Army cook would be boring.

They like guns. They think their 5' groups at 50m is sub-moa. Therefore, they consider themselves a sniper. They go home and fantasize how many gooks they would have killed with their stock R700 and Barska scope from 100 miles away. After all this mental masturbation they go to the gunstore and project their fantasy on all the sheeple. Simple really.

Maybe you should hang out at a better class of lgs.  Beyond that advice, I'm calling BS on your post, pal.

Sounds to me like you have issues of inadequacy.  Only you can fill in the blanks.  LOL!

I can't tell you how many lone surviving members of their platoon from 'Nam I've met over the years.  Had no idea so many platoons were wiped out except for one dude.

For gun store owners:  Put up with stupid story to make a sale or tell poser to FO?   I think I'd just launch the guy, even if it meant losing a sale.

FWIW, one of the most accomplished snipers I've ever met, and had the pleasure to be instructed by, is fat as fuck. He's a retired SOF guy with a Camp Perry win or two under his belt. Careful who you call out.

Simply put they are retarded.

I had a guy younger than me (28) in my lockup one day drunk as shit claiming he was a Seal and he fought in Vietnam etc. The best part he then ran at the mouth about how his brother in law is an officer at this police department. His brother in law was on duty this particular night and came to visit him in lockup. His brother in law is a awesome dude I went through police academy with him, OIF Army vet with a purple heart. For the rest of the night drunkie kept wailing about how his brother in law was going to beat the shit out of him when he got out, well that and occasionally forgetting about the aforementioned incident and saying shit like, "I been to lots of LZs you probably don't even know what that means..."

So you've never been to a gun store?  I have never been to a gun store that didn't have a sniper there.  Maybe they like temperate climates.

We had a guy come shoot our local highpower match. I think he probably wieghed more than 350. We tried to help him with his positions but he said that is not the way we were taught in SCOUT SNIPER SCHOOL.

He shot 325 out of 800 and had the low score for the match. He never came back.

He did have a nice M1A though.

You are probably correct. I have not been to any kind of sniper or scout school. But I do have a Masters card (not the credit card) in Highpower Rifle.

Yep, that's the guy. Led a platoon of snipers. 1.5 mile head shots were routine. Carved the ace is spades into the foreheads of dead Iraqis.

ETA I'd like to turn his lying ass in for telling lies about mutilating bodies as a U.S. Marine.

I liked Riggers.

If it wasn't for Riggers jumping out of a C-130 while in flight would have been a very uncomfortable experience.

95% of the guys that come in where I work that look like they served in the Gulf War era tell me they were Force Recon Snipers.

And 90% of those tell me they were a desk jockey that was told they were going to Force Recon to be a sniper.

Whatever dude


And the rest are usually 20 something po dunk rednecks that say they have their Rem 770 sighted in at 1000 yards with a "tactical" NCStar scope and are shooting 1/4" groups.

The look on their faces when they notice me at the range and I'm shooting my baby:



Priceless.

I had a guy in to give me an estimate on replacing some windows. He noticed my U.S.M.C license plate holder and asked if I had been in the Corps. I said yea 1967 to 1971. He then began to tell me he had been Marine Recon in "the nam", and the stories began. This guy was about 5'8" and a good 250lbs, Broke out in a sweat just climbing my front porch steps. I listened politely and said I call him back about the windows, if he was recon then I'm Chesty Puller.
