    I am only 20, so I can not buy a pistol on my own. However, I am wanting to get a bigger collection going. What are some good sub-$2000 rifles that I should look into? I already have an AR15. Thanks.

    a Ruger 10/22 with a target barrel will serve that purpose well as will just about any decently made small caliber rifle.

    M1 Garand, and a good cheap ak, like an SAR-1. Maybe even a FN-FAL.

    a robinson. if they added an external bolt hold-open device, they'd be a hell of a lot better. that, and lowered their prices. they're now about $1200.

    nah, get something fun. the remington 700 VS SF runs about 700 bucks, get some nice glass for it for another 500 to however much you want to spend, and go to town. I'm a fan of 22-250, but 223 or whatever you want would be fine. Good varmint/plinking/target gun.
    Good bang for the buck. just don't cheap out on the glass.

    not true. hathcock was more publicised than most. but there are many with MANY more confirmed kills than he had, and MANY more confirmed countersniper kills. that's the test. being able to snipe normal troops is one thing. being able to snipe other snipers who are trying to snipe you, that's a test. he was good, but not the best.

    Hell wasn't it a CANADIAN that set the new long-distance kill mark during the initial campaign in Afghanistan? :eek3: And Carlos DID have many counter-sniper kills. He got the knickname "white feather" FROM the enemy. They even had a Russian dude flown in to try and kill Hathcock. That was the kill that started the famous "bullet thru the scope" story. Carlos said if he had of been a few seconds slow on the trigger the russian would of killed him. I've read both books about him, and he was definitely one of the baddest men ever with a sniper rifle. They said he had over twice as many unconfirmed kills as he did confirmed.
