    I"m actually in the Midwest, and you are a wussy, to be worried about me and my attitude about defensive shooting and the law.

    The reason snipers succeed is because while they may be concealed, their gun is not. It is out and tracking the target.

    Comparing snipers to concealed carry and self defense? Really? REALLY?!?

    So, let's see, I am going to hide in an obscure location with a high powered rifle fitted with a high magnification scope and wait until I observe a criminal committing a criminal act, and then I am going to use different objects around the target to estimate the wind velocity and direction, and compare the criminal's distance to mapped objects on my range chart to determine distance to target, using my mil-dot reticle to account for distance and wind adjustments and squeeze a round off, hitting the criminal in the middle of his forehead.

    Wow, you are correct.... I've been carrying for self defense in entirely the wrong way this whole time.
    Element of Surprise: a mythical element that many believe has the same affect upon criminals that Kryptonite has upon Superman. Amerika: a place where the serfs are afraid of the action the police may take against them for perfectly legal behavior.

    Hey Kaymen: As others have said, I also appreciate your comments--thoughtful and well said. Having said that, my first thought as I read the thread is the fact that if you are a forum member, are CCW ready, and are reading this thread and are learning something from it, you scare me---how you could have made a decision to purchase a firearm, take a course and walk around with the potential to kill someone without having thought out what Kaymen has said--shame on you. It was alluded to somewhat at the end of Kaymen's comments but first and foremost in my way of thinking, is situational awareness. The best "common sense" is to never put yourself in a position where all the other factors come into play and always plan to minimize or eliminate the potential for an escalated situation. Always "what if" but discretion about where you go, when you go and what you are doing will eliminate almost all potential situations.

    Agreed, however does the intended target ever see said weapon? No. If they do then A) the sniper is a very poor one and/or B) a soon to be very DEAD one....LOL

    NAVYLCDR - You've taken an purely METAPHORICAL EXAMPLE that was only stated for a comparison of why sometimes carrying concealed is a better option and taken it WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY out into left field. I'm not going to even ATTEMPT to get you back on course because it would take way too much wasted time and effort. Oy vey.
