Exactly. I might take a 250ft shot a few times a year, but 90% of my shots are within 200ft (120-170ft being the bulk of that), just because it increases the chances of getting a reliable hit on a guy (and it's rare to get the one shot, one kill with any airsoft gun past 130ft), generally it's the second shot that'll find it's mark. The first shot is more a test fire to see what the air conditions are between you and the target, then you compensate for windage and elevation and try again.

So ya, me going against guys with AEGs, using a bolt action well, is what I do. Even though I can outshoot AEGs doesn't mean that I make sure I'm really far away before I take my shot. That's where the skill and balls come into play, and where I'm at an extreme disadvantage............ yet I have a high chance of doing very well. Hence my earlier reference to "Separates the men from the boys", the boys want the full auto option as a "just in case" thing, the real true snipers have no use for it because we have confidence and skills to use a BA rifle well. Ends up largley being about cover, conceilment, camoflage, and use of your surroundings to get into a firing position and take that shot(s).

Oh ya, one of my favourite missions is what I do 1 to 3 times per year, depending on the game, I really love the "Team A vs Team B vs. Me", where I dress up in my ghillie, leave my MP5s at home (or just at base), and head out into the woods with my rifle, silent MK23 and a G19 for the "Oh Shit!!" moments, and shoot anyone I happen to see. A couple times it's been 20 vs 20 vs 1. Really gets your shit in order FAST.

Exactly. Now that sounds a LOT more believable.

My offer still stands up for anyone that wants to try it instead of talking out of their asses and can't back it up.

So the rumors are true?

You're that good?

Ronan, if you played more outside and left the staging erea, you would have seen some good sniping shots done.

There is no need to prove to you how good a sniper can be with a little video.

Rather like you with your PTW that's never seen action outside.

Typical games like that I tend to get shot a half dozen to 10 times per day, but also rack up almost the same number of kills. Last time played that type of game, was about a dozen per side, I got killed two or three times I think, but got three kills with my rifle from the swamp, and one kill with my MK23 on a guy walking through the swamp who just happened to walk within 30ft of me without noticing me. And, lucky me, I only fired four shots all day (ok, five if you count the close range ass shot I did on Testtube while he was in respawn, cuz his gf asked me to).

Is all more about camo and stealth than it is about shooting skills.

that sounds like it would be fun. if I ever get into being a sniper I might try that. and i dont mind getting my ass handed to me, so it would also work as a good training session.

The best mistakes are the ones you learn from. And I've made a LOT of mistakes when it comes to airsoft.

Which PTW? Please be more specific.

My PTW LWRC has seen a good amount of action and now has a new owner thats very happy with it.

The others were more of overpriced wall hangers...

Dude..... you're just so lame, all of your comebacks are lame too. It's getting seriously annoying since you can't even realize it. Just give up, seriously.

I don't keep track of your PTWs, I just keep track of the number of QC players that say you almost never get out to games, when you do you barely play, etc. Yet you, as Drake said earlier, over-estimate your opinion around here. Besides, this is a sniper related thread, and you really have nothing to contribute to it, yet insist those of us that can get BBs out to 300ft (emphasis on CAN get them out, no mention of actually having consistant mansized accuracy) to make a video to prove it to you. Face it buddy, you are mostly a chairsofter since you joined.

I'll be waiting for that 300 feet range bolt-action sniper proof. Lots of talk, zero proof.

Cheers

You're dumber than a bag of rocks, you'd need to show up to an actual game to see a proof. No one will go thru the trouble you're asking them to just for your own benefit.

Yet you turn around and claim your PTW can get BBs out to 300ft as well.......... with zero proof. That's like vomit telling poop it stinks!

Yes my PTW can reach 300 feet. Can it be accurate? Heck no, they just 'fly out there'. I never claimed to be accurate at those ranges like SOME people do.

Hence why i want some proof that a BA can be accurate at those ranges.

Keep talking people, all i want is 1 little video/proof that someone in Canada has a BA that can be accurate at 300 feet, like some are claiming.

Amos was pretty straight in saying that its not realistic and maybe 1/10 shots will hit there. From reading on the forums and owning a modified VSR, that sounds a LOT more realistic.

I guess i'm asking to much for someone to prove his BA can hit man size targets in the 300 feet...

My bad people, i'll take your 'word' for it. It's the internet so i shouldn't be surprised...
