Hello all, My name is Rolando and I hail from Michigan.


Im new to this hobby, but read up on many sites under the newb FAQ's and familiarized myself with the rules and regulations of the game.

Yes its odd for someone to pick the sniper role when they are a fresh puppy but I love it. I know all about the sniper techniques and how they operate (spotter,shooter). I understand that I could only possibly fire 4 rounds or none at all which is completely fine. I've done numerous "career" reports about Snipers while in school . I actually wanted to be a scout sniper as a kid just like my relative.

Right now im slowing my current hobby down right now. Well I guess you can call it that. I've been dumping alot of my money into my car and what not but slowing that down since gas is rising I rather have a somewhat good MPG Camaro than crappy 15mpg :)


After reviewing many posts and reviews for sniper rifles Ive narrowed my choice down basicaly to an Maruzen APS2 or a Bar 10.. The SR-25 is def. a option still.

I still have much to learn in the battlefield and I'm hoping to get that money quick so I can get out there with you all :)

I know this is not even close to sniping as on COD4 and other shooter games but im as excited as can be

Welcome to the boards!


That and with your rifle selections. The APS-2 is a great rifle. I am currently looking at picking one up in the L96 version. But I do have the BAR-10. And I know it is a clone, yap yap yap. But for a first rifle it is great. And with a few little tweaks it can shoot with the best of them.

I would say if you are just starting out and not to sure if you want to stick around for years and years. I vote for the BAR-10. Just due to the fact that it isn't all that expensive so you will have some extra cash to get a tight bore and a new bucking. That will still be cheaper than a stock VSR or APS2. Just my two cents.

That and with a rifle like the BAR you can not feel bad about taking it apart and working on it. You don't have to worry about breaking something and having to pay a ton to fix it. As all of the VSR parts can fit in this rifle as well.

But I digress... welcome to the boards and stick around and have fun. Good luck with the camero problem.

Welcome, welcome, welcome. Glad to see you clicked on my link! I knew you'd like it here. I already gave my advice on MiA but whatever you choose just make sure you know for sure it's what you want.

Remember, there's no shame in the DM role! Why do you think the U.S. Army Scout/Snipers are switching from the M24 to a semiautomatic rifle? (The KAC M110..basically a really fancy SR25)

Yea I'm really leaning 70% towards that Sr-25, and then move to a bolt action sometime in the future after some experience in games.

Ive been looking at a couple websites for vest/rigs and cant really find anything? I dont know what I would want a ghillie BDU to go with it?

Even with an SR 25 rifle, I would still want a side arm so im looking at a vest/rig and I'm just a little confused for the airsoft game. Would I want something like this http://redwolfairsoft.com/redwolf/airsoft/ProductDetail?prodID=23882 (which im prettty sure I would need since I need to run light and get the hell out of my spot if I'm spotted, dont want to be slower than needed)

Or a regular vest like so

and Embed, I have a good $230 saved up now for that SR 25 so, things are looking great! HaHa

That belt with a couple .308 pouches and maybe a utility pouch for anything besides mags you might carry will do you just fine. A light load is important if you want to get out quick so you're on the right track.

You might want a hydration pack but some people just get water in between matches and such. If you're going to be attending more in depth OP's with long game times then I recommend a hydration pack.

As for camo, I suggest you go with a standard BDU set of some kind (Woodland, MARPAT, Desert, ACU, Multicam, etc.) with one of these:

They're super cheap and WELL worth the money. You'll be able to hide pretty well and still not be tied down for those shit hit the fan situations.
