In the latest issue there is a column titled "American Sniper in Israel". Very interesting, basically a diary of daily terrorist attacks and such. Anyway, there was one part where he mentioned some sniper training/drills and they were using the AR10.

Some people make fun of SOF (I think the title gives people the heebie geebies), but I think it's a great mag. If you go back pre Sept 11th they covered Usama Bin Laden alot and spoke of the threat that he was. The gun coverage is very good too. Can somebody sponsor a subscription to SOF for me? I'll wash your car. Sucks being poor. I'm married, nuff said.

I saw that article too, love that SOF, but I seemed to have mis-lied that issue. For me personally, I wish we could legally buy an AR10. Here in PRK, it was banned, along with the >10 round mags by SB23. To me it would make perfect sense to have a semi-auto as a sniper rifle, because you may have to engage multiple targets in a very short time.

Is this article like the recent one where they CENSORED every Israeli soldier's face? That issue showed SEVERAL U.S. Marines (on the ground in Afghaniland) clearly and easy to identify.... Scott

The Israelis are using the AR-10 and the SR-25 for semi snipers.

Heh, yep. Although, I can see why - for the Israelis, a psycho neighbor could recognize them and cause some, well, trouble. As for the Marines, I don't think the Talibums will be saying to each other while being fired upon by Marines "Hey, is that the dude that's on the cover of SOF?" [:)]

You know, I had forgotten all about that. Now that I think about it, those guys used up a lot of ink on OBL, but I never got the connection. The general news media usually pick it up months later, such as Waco, Rubyridge etc. of course after it has become old news, at least to us SOF readers.

Back in the early 80s I was a regular reader. Haven't read it in awhile, but it always seemed to be a good source of info . . .
