Reading somewhere on the net where they we're having issues with the 10 x scopes they were issued.. Anyone know what snipers are issued?

Depends on the branch of military. Army is running Leupold MK8, Marines use Schmitt and Bender and Leupold, seals use NightForce. That's just what I remember off the top of my head though.

I also know how to write in cursive, but why make things slower and more difficult?

It's just in testing like many other tools they have to try out.

Now you're making me feel old.

But that does help prove my point. I predict the MOA will forever leave the hands of U.S. Snipers in every branch.

I'm going to keep writing in cursive just to confuse the younger generation when they try to read it.

interesting.... as a generalization not in the to 10....... BUT they hold there own I think mostly because comps are games you learn to play and most active guys just show up "blind" and do the match.

I've only seen one active guy win first..... and that was a while back
