For the old timers

I've noticed several of my old-timer GT friends hang out here in the black rifle forum.

This leads me to a question.

First, go read this thread: http://www.300BlkTalk.com/forum/view...=87185&start=0

Then, tell me: Is it just me, or has Gecko45 re-surfaced with a different username and just posted a new version of the Mall Ninja thread there??

Writing style isn't the same as Gecko45 or GunKid.

He also has a legitimate question about a squad sniping system, though these days, they tend to go with a suppressed AR-10 type (OBR, SR-25) since they don't really look much different than an M16. Others have built similar fold-a-sniper rifles for the same reason but in .308, for the same role.

I doubt he's a former military sniper without seeing more info though. Most real ones would give a branch or designation, not 'former military sniper'.

Murph,
You're not giving him enough credit! He's had 10 years to mature and develop. While he's definitely more polished in his presentation, the BS factor still leaks through...

Later on in that thread he claims to have spent 15 yrs as a sniper/instructor. I'd have to call BS as the questions he was asking were far too basic for any of the instructors I've ever met.

There’s so many posers on the net it’s hard to tell one from another. That’s one good thing about this forum. We may have people that will argue specs and brand until the day they die but at least they don’t claim to be something they’re not.

Well, he may have come off bad initially, but he gave a name and class number. He's being checked out, and he's supremely confident it will check out.

We'll see.

Murphy pretty much nailed it,......I passed the info along to a Marine buddy of mine.
He's on it like Oprah on a donut.
