Is it just me or are there a rapid number of people wanting to become a Designated Marksmen or Snipers? I know that it is a dream that we all here on this forum share and have in common but I am seeing more and more people getting bolt action rifles and trying to turn their AEGs into SPRs and PSG-1s.

I can see why they would want to. Its glorified in war movies, its glorified in video games, its glorified everywhere. Anyone with a bolt-action rifle and scope that kills someone is labeled as a sniper in the news.

Do you think the game of airsoft will slowly turn into a constant game of bolt-action rifles with a few support gunners here and there? Or do you think its just thanks to the uprise of clones like UTG that makes weapons like this more available to the people who cant afford to upgrade a G-Spec/Maruzen rifle?

Now, I am not calling myself a sniper. I didnt earn that title yet. I am simply a guy with a homemade ghillie suit and a bolt action rifle. But I am simply curious is it just me or does anyone else see a giant uprise in people wanting to grab the nearest bolt action rifle and claiming the title no matter the skill?

Im not saying that clones are all bad. I first started out with a UHC but I never thought about going into the role seriously with it or going into the role with it at an OP. I got into it with a infatuation by meeting a real Marine Scout/Sniper that had his rifle, pictures, ect. My Uncle Matt invited him over to my Cousin birthday party and it took off from there. I bought books ect. I was into hunting and I already shot bolt actions on the bench.

Im just saying, everyone seems to be trying to go into "The one shot one kill... unless I miss then Ill shoot again." with their UTG and SPR/SR/PSG1's
