Been reading that NASCAR considers our bolt guns as Sniper Rifles. I hope it isn't true.

Mine are. I am an American sniper rifle

Not sure why that definition makes any difference, people hunt with sniper rifles all day, and snipers hunt people with their rifles every day, doesn't mean I am going to go hunt people with my rifle.

Having a Sniper rifle, doesn't make a person a Sniper.

Having a Sniper scope, doesn't make a person a Sniper.

You have to have Sniper-ry skillz to be a Sniper.

Sounds like NASCAR bowing down to their sponsors and not following their fans beliefs.

Money talks. I'm sure just like Nike, NASCAR is following the money.

So what makes a rifle a “sniper rifle”?

Didn't they have an NRA car running at one time? Or am I thinking of something else? Of course they ditched the "Winston" in Winston Cup, so they have a history.

How many NASCAR fans will boycott the sport? Not many.

My guess is "a bolt action rifle, chambered in a caliber that has ballistics to fight wind drift, and hit a target downrange with consistency, and enough energy to expand a bullet and penetrate far enough to reach vital organs. This rifle should have a solid and stable stock, that is heavy enough to mitigate some recoil, but light enough to be carried easily, and a quality scope with enough magnification to clearly see your target" Basically, the same definition of what makes a good hunting rifle.

Just one more reason to hate nascar. Seriously, about as interesting as soccer.

I must be a sniper. I have rifle,scope, and the name. So I am a Sniper! Ha.
