Some of us are unfortunately left handed with a rifle, makes it damned inconvenient when all the ones on the market are right handed :P.

APSIISV is a perfect starter bolt action rifle. Parts are easy to get, perhaps not as easy the TM VSR-10, but easy enough. The rifle is built solid and has tonnes of external accessories available for it as well. However if you do get one of these, the best upgrade part you'll want is the PDI adj. hop-up unit; this will not only get you adj. hop-up but actually let you use AEG barrels, so you can go tightbore and longer lengths. More info on the APSII if you want to look into it:

But I'm pining for a CAM24, might just have to learn to shoot on the other shoulder...

I'm left handed... and I find it easier to work the bolt that way...

Holding the gun into my left shoulder I find it alot easier to work the bolt with my right hand...

Yes, but you realise that in the standing position your sights will drop from the weight of the rifle, not that you can't counter this. However standard practice is that its the hand thats on the trigger that should pull the bolt, not only for safety reason but its also a lot more fluid. I finally got my first left hand bolt action in real steel, until not all my bolt actions have been right handed, and let me tell you, the difference is amazing.

Then you should have posted the sarcasism regarding the definition since none of us picked up on your intent. Guess you earned 'wanker' again, eh? Lol

So if Stalker has the rifle, that you hugging his lower regions and releasing use of your rear to him? ...

Toque instead of ballcap or boonie.
No smoke from a half lit cigarette.
No tampons.
Um, that can't possibly be Stalker

If you want to go SPR, get a PTW and a DOFF custom 6.01mm 510mm long tightbore and an M150 cylinder running a 12V battery. Other than that leave airsoft armalites for, well, the garbage can.

I'm building myself a PTW SPR for next summer and have already figured out how to work the slings so I can have my PTW CQB-R on me at the same time and be able to swap between them really fast. I'm gunning for more of the designated marksman rifle, ~450fps, not 550fps like some PTW users in Asia and Europe.

My biggest gripe with snipers is newb snipers, not because they don't work so well because they don't have the experience but because they can't judge distances, panic sometimes, etc. etc. I've been shot in the throat from a 399fps normal AEG from a newb from under 10' because he didn't know to call a surrender instead of shooting, nor did he aim for the torso by default but the head. If I was in control anyone starting airsoft would be limited to 325fps for the first year or 20 games, which ever came first. That of course is another story.

My definition of a sniper rifle in airsoft: any weapon in the hands of someone who knows how to use it REALLY well. Stalker has made kills with his MP5 that less experienced players can't make with a 500fps sniper rifle.

I agree with Stalkers comment about any gun over 400fps should not be a primary and anyone found walking around with it willy nilly like when on patrol should be asked to not use it anymore that day, put it back in their car trunk. Its not called a "SPECIAL purpose rifle" for nothing.
