Why do you all and all other "Sniper Realted" sites I've glared at use bolt action centerfire instead of auto rimfire? It just would make more sense to use a rimfire instead. Can u help me?

one more thing

Why not use .22 LR or SR, they're cheaper to shoot, and understandable to use for just training and learning to become a Sniper? Or am I wrong, or mislead?

well .22 LR isnt strong enough to hit **** at extreme distances and wouldnt be suited for sniping

for training its always better to use the real thing... long range marksmanship is just as much knowing what ajustments to make on your scope as much as it is keeping the gun steady

snipers dont pay for the ammo either... the military pays for it

why bolt action? there more reliable and dont launch brass 10 yards...

.22 LR rifles are fine for leaning how to shoot but snipers have already mastered it weather they are law enforcement or civilian before they go to a sniper school

Israel used to use silenced 10/22s to snipe at protestors who were inciting riots and such, and thought it would be non lethal...oops, it killed people. So now they use em to shoot dogs. I figure thats about the best it can do, a "hush puppy" concept.

yes but they have EXTREMELY limited roles that they are hardly counted at all and can only fill a specialized position, nothing more and will not come close to preforming as a standard sniper rifle which is what 99.99% of snipers will be using
its a decent silent takedown weapon but again only at close range, useful for eliminating guards and guard dogs

silenced 22 mag rimfire pistols are used to defeat sentries at close range... thats about the extent of what their good for.

Try practicing with a pistol chambered in .40 S&W, and then test your abilities with the SAME pistol (H&K, Sig, & Glock all make 'em) chambered in .357 SIG. The difference isn't so drastic, but it's a great way to get an up close idea of why you can't practice with one gun and expect to be proficient with another.

learning to become a sniper should be handled at sniper school
sniper instructors know how to make snipers
they will give you the real thing... for the Army that is the M24 SWS and the Marine Corps its the M40A3

Nothin wrong with honest questions, just chuck em in the right place...and surf a lil first to see if anyone asked it already, like the "why bolt action?" stuff

fine if its a question that they need to know there is no such thing as a dumb question
it beomces a dumb question when not properly stated
if a post is put in the right forum, its clear what the question is then the members will be more than happy to help you

post stuff in the right spot... under the forums name there is a discriptoion of the forum, you can get help that way, check out the forum a little bit you might see the answer to your question before you ask it, have any more questions feel free to ask

everyone was once new and had to learn it somehow, they were likely either told or asked someone

The first paragraph made sense, and I apologize if I contributed to the dissatisfaction of anyone else in this awesome community... but your second paragraph is beyond comprehension. Please proof read it?

Cody221, im not sure exactly what your trying to say. I'm sorry if i offend people with the things i post, but 9/10 times i seriously think im saying the things that alot of the members want to say, but wont or dont.

He's trying to say you make good contributions and your posts are intelligent, and that you're a respected member...I think? Thats what I gleaned from it anyway...

Spade, you say things I think, but cannot say...Sometimes IMO they need to be said.
