To snipe or not to snipe

I am thinking of getting a cheap sniper rifle (HFC VSR-11) and using my existing guns as a side arm, or just getting a Maruzen MP5 KAY Kurz. Should I get the sniper rifle or the MP5? I am equally split between the two.

short answer, get an AEG. sniping to start can be very dissapointing.

They'll both be equally useless in a toe to toe fight with full size rifles.

As for sniping, if you have to ask, don't do it.

I'll be doing a review of the HFC USR-11 when I get it this weekend. Hopefully I'll have the initial stuff posted early next week.

If you want to snipe but also want somthing for normal gameplay get a good AEG that can also double as a sniper rifle. I got a Mauri M-14 and find it an excellant all around aeg for sniping as well as somewhat close combat. With the proper upgrades I think it would be an excellant sniper rifle, hell it is one even right out of the box.

if you plan on sniping make sure you have the etra kit to boot. it's one thing to be a good shot. but to make your self the shot from no where is what makes sniping key. without the ability to look like your suroundings, the use of a well placed shot from a bolt action will lose it's value real quick. you need to know how to hide in a pinch or have a good guillie suit or else you might end up being the one person aiming instead of moving like you should. remember,stationary targets are easy to hit.


in short. sniping is fun. but on a different level then ordinary airsoft. it's the fun of patience, thinking and wit. if this is you, i wish you all the best. but if you want to call your self a sniper by getting a gun that snipers might use. the fun might be taken out of the sport for you. and that sucks


just my two c's

Well he could just take a rifle that has range (IE m14 or SR-25) and that is semi automatic and be a self proclamed "scout" or something. Basically instead of rushing into trouble with the aeg riflemen he could stay behind and try to take cover and shoot from far.

Its sniping but I think it would be more fun than staying in a field far away watching people only to get a thud on their vest for satisfaction (personal opinion no need for flames)

I too own the usr 11 rifle and it is pretty nice. Nevertheless, I agree with the other members in saying that while sniping has a very cool and honorable look in games and movies, it can get quite old quite fast unless your very up to the challenge.
