    You should know that while the name of the forum is Sniper Central, most people here are mainly long range shooters. Those who do carry a gun as part of their job tend to keep that aspect of things out of the discussion. So, if that's what you are looking to discuss, you may not find an audience.

    1) Depends what I'm carrying and how big the target is. No way to answer without qualifiers.
    2) I like a mix of both. Too far, and adverse conditions present a challenge. Too close, and my quarry won't let me get away with movement. To put it in perspective, I'd rather shoot a deer at 500-600yds than 100yds... but things start to get tricky as you approach 1000yds in south dakota on certain days.
    3) Wait and see, since I'm in no danger. If pressed into a 2-way range type situation where there is danger... there is no correct answer to this question without a lot more qualifiers. Situation denotes action, not internet discussion. I've played these games out in training many times. Never put them into service, and hope to never need to. Shooting when someone isn't shooting back is a much more desirable situation, regardless of what modern internet forum discussion would have people believe.
    4) Without qualifiers? DTA SRS-A1 with 30" 7LRM barrel, DTSS suppressor, and TT525P optic. Anything sucking air in North America inside of 1000yds any day of the year is in deep kimchi if I'm laying behind that.
    5) Yes. I HATE shooting unsuppressed and rarely do it.

    Answer "D" all of the above.

    Be without fear in the face of your enemies. Be brave and upright that God may love thee. Speak the truth always, even if it leads to your death. Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong. That is your oath.
