Are you sure? I read somewhere that he was a sniper in Vietnam. Maybe it was Korea.

wow, what a fire storm. the way i see it sniper=range. real guns, you have a HUGE variety of range, ammo, scopes etc.

we are all playing make believe with little balls of paint, using some air, therefore no one player is at much of an advantage when range is the deciding factor. i have the deffinition of sniper listed below. paintball players can at best meet about 1/2 of that, (on a good day).

A sniper is an infantry combatant or serviceman (e.g. police officer) who specializes in shooting from a concealed position over longer ranges than regular infantry, often with a specially designed or adapted sniper rifle. A sniper requires skill in marksmanship, camouflage, and field craft. Military snipers are also adept at carrying out methods of infiltration, reconnaissance, and observation techniques.

I started all this with a post about a ghilli suit. my goal, was to be less seen, and have a new way to play. for all you Jr. Tom Beringers who wish to be real snipers, keep dreaming.

Fred Rogers went directly to college after high school.  He got a job right out of college.  There are no gaps in his education or employment that would account for military service.

I wish to be a real sniper?  Then apparently the last 4 years of my life after Marine Corps Sniper School were all just one big dream.

You "goal" of playing to be less seen is just using basic infantry tactics and lying in ambush.  You're wanting to play with tactics, and not run and gun.  Good for you.

Don't worry about it.  You can always dig around and find out how Captain Kangaroo and Lee Marvin served together in the Marine Corps and helped take Iwo Jima.

I think Wolverine was in on the Iwo Jima assault too, wasn't he?  Or was Wolvie still helping Captain America at that point?

I really like the idea and personally want a suit

Normally if a thread goes over six months without a post it is an indication that it is deceased and it is considered poor form to resurrect it.  Especially for the equivalent of "oh, I agree too."
