    my picks > USMC M40A3 and Parker-Hale M-85 and Patriot Arms Genesis (note: I don't know anything about sniping or sniper guns, but I like it)

    We get to pick 3? Okay, I'll take the Barrett M82A1, THe Dakota T-76 in .338 Lapau, and the HS Precision HTR. Can I borrow a few bucks?

    Whatever a qualified military sniper or experienced civilian sniper competition aficionado has in his hands. It ain't the meat, it's the motion.

    How could you say that? It was AWESOME. Blood, gore, realisticity, everything was great.
    The one sniper scene is by far my favorite--where the American sniper sees the german sniper; while the german starts to pull the trigger, he gets shot through the scope...
    OUCH

    I just didn't take kindly to it. That sniper scene was a ripoff of Marine sniper Carlos Hathcock's encounter with an NVA sniper in which Hathcock shot the gook in the eye right through the scope. I could rant about this movie, but this isn't the place to do it.

    Wow.
    I think they made an NCIS about a sniper wannabe who had that same "white feather" singature.

    "gook"?

    That's actually a true story, but it happened in Vietnam. Carlos Hathcock drilled a VC sniper just miliseconds before the commie dropped the hammer on him.
