    WTF is a snipper rifle

    At the Martinsville gun show on Sat I saw a rifle with a sales sticker on it " Mosin Nagant 7.62x54r
    Snipper rifle
    $1099.99
    Offered to get it for a buddy if he would send me his credit card info, sadly he declined.

    That's one a them Moisin's with a mussel break.
    You load them with striper clips.
    Sometimes they altar the stalk for a better site picture.


    Why is my eye twitching?

    It might be drilled and taped for a scope. I doubt that taped-on scopes hold a zero too well.

    This reminds me of those 4X4 ads in the classifieds bragging about the truck including a 3000 lb. wench. I'll bet that truck had uprated springs...

    How do you tape for a scope?

    Careful, guys. There are some on here that will call you a "spelling nazi" for having the temerity to point out some spelling incompetence.

    Well we all make mistrokes with our typing, but when your selling something for over a grand I would think you could spell the tag on it correctly. Didn't look close to try and see if it was what he claimed, not a Mosin expert, don't own one and won't be owning one.

    I'm fine with my jackboots.

    Proper use of the spoken and written word, in whatever language, is not just a trivial matter of nit-picking snobbery; accurate communication can mean life or death - literally. The charge of the Light Brigade was a result of a miscommunicated and misunderstood directive. The men who died that day doubtless would have appreciated a bit of clarity.
