Ausfag here, Is it almost impossible to immigrate to the US? From what I can find the fastest way to get a green card is through marriage? I doubt I'll be able to find a job, I don't have any exceptional skills, only intermediate knowledge of machining and mechanical engineering and a passion for firearms. Is my dream of becoming a firearms manufacter just a pipedream?
I'm reading "Fry the Brain: The Art of Urban Sniping and its Role in Modern Warfare by John West", and was fascinated by some unconventional ideas on sniping.
One of which being sniping with a .177 air rifle. He postulates that these rifles are adequate for taking down man sized targets using a video of a man killing a 200 pound hog as anecdotal evidence.
Another one being a handgun, such as a Glock 17 with a scope resting on a stable surface/bipod being used for short-range sniping. He claims that concealment and maneuverability can make up for its lack of accuracy.
A third unconventional idea was using a shotgun firing slugs for sniping up to 100 yards by referring to a UVF-contract killer as anecdotal evidence.
You can find the book on the murdercube if you want to take a look. I myself purchased the book as it was relatively cheap. It'll probably get you on a list.
What are your thoughts? What other unconventional ideas for unconventional warfare may you propose? A compound bow/crossbow? All ideas are good ideas, gentlemen.
