What a waste of money on the government’s part. Why in the world would, of all Federal Agencies, the FBI need 20mm rifles to engage targets a thousands of yards away? The only time these rifles are going to be fired is at the shooting range, then after that they will be placed back in the armory until the next time they are taken to the shooting range. The FBI has no worldly reason to 20mm guns other than to say they have them. The fed’s need to get priorities straight.
I say, take those rifle’s away from the FBI and put them in the hands of U.S. Army and Marine Corps snipers and let them have a night out on the town in Afghanistan, where they will have legitimate purpose because the ranges that this rifle can hit targets at are comfortably within reach. Our snipers could definitely have a serious effect on the morale of the insurgents. Not only would the insurgents have to contend with air power and artillery, now they will be sniped away at 4,900 yards, hundreds of times farther than Rob Furlong’s record breaking shot. Sorry if I’m venting but does everyone else see my logic?
