Sniper almost sniped


4 comments:

  1. Well, let's see....Mohammed there is resting his FAL on a hard surface (that's great for accuracy), sticking his barrel out the window (didn't read Plaster's book, methinks)......that's just for openers...

    Wouldn't call him a sniper....just sayin'.....

  2. I wouldn't call Mohammed a rifleman either. It takes an immense amount of neglect to make an FAL not cycle properly. If I remember correctly, Plaster wrote that the sniper takes a maximum of two shots from a hide and immediately moves away. In this case with the billowing white dust Mohammed should have moved immediately after his first shot. Only the slow response by Achmed the Awful kept him from being shot.
