The photos were released without permission by a company that manufacturers [sic] one of the parts of the rifle. They were sent to the company as a thank you for their private feelings of accomplishment. …this was nothing spectacular.
This sniper is in the same hide for every NFL game in that stadium. Â
He is the best sniper on the department, well qualified for that shot. But thanks to a company that couldn’t decide that posting confidential photos on the internet [sic] was a bad idea, he may never see a hide again.
The Rifle: Remington 700 SPS Tactical 18″ .308 Threaded 5/8×24
Stock: XLR Industries Evolution Chassis
Scope: US Optics
The Suppressor: Direct Thread On Suppressed Armament System (SAS)
Triipod [sic]: DCLW w/ Flatop
Shooter: Indianapolis Metro Police Dept. SWAT
I wonder how many anti-gun Americans visiting the Super Bowl this year will privately like the idea that there are a number of snipers squirreled away keeping watch over the crowd.
Just. Â In. Case.
Because you can bet dollars to donuts that if something happens that requires an armed response, they’d be the first to accuse the authorities of not protecting an unarmed crowd.
