just watched shooter on dvd last nite. a really good movie about a sniper, X-marine. shoots looks like a barret 50 cal and is popping heads like pumpkins on traveling targets at a long ways off. if you haven't seen it, watch it, pretty good action.

If you liked the movie you'll love the book it was based on.

great action movie. i am shure that leupold scope sales have been brisk. another fine rifle which is depicted in the movie is the cheytec .408.http://world.guns.ru/sniper/sn63-e.htm
interesting caliber and absolutely devastating on long range "dinty Moore" head shots.
I was impressed at least in the beginning by the accurate depiction of the equipment

The USMC M40A3 with the correct Unertl 10x scope in particular. Most in Hollywood would have throw whatever they could find on the ground for Mark to use.

He did say "I'm a U.S. senator". But you missed the whole point of the movie when he says, "There never were any Republicans or Democrats.....only the Haves and Have-nots." ....and that's exactly what the Congress today thinks about us!

Hello everyone. I thought Shooter was a fairly decent movie. Especially considering the crap Hollywood usually turns out now-a-days. I thought it was a really good use for the Dinty Moore beef stew. Talk about a "reactive" target!

I couldn't agree more. I thought the movie was excellent.
