These are American patriots. In my opinion, the DemocRATs and RINOs we saw at the SOTU speech this week are not worthy of kissing these men’s boots!

Ha! Get some, muzzie. And, oh-by-the-way... all that talk about 72 virgins... never mind — your new “Imam,” Satan will explain it to you.

Me either, wasn’t expecting one when I saw the can on the end of the rifle but “bang” sounded better than “pffft” to me :)

Happy hunting, Marines!

M110 SARS (semi-auto-sniper-rifle-system), or whatever the USMC calls it. Armalite AR10, 20 inch barrel with a suppressor in 7.62 NATO, probably using M118 LR ammo or M852 Match (both w/175 grain seirra match king BTHP at about 2550 fs.

Best;

I’m 100% sure they were positive he was a combatant.

Had you watched the video, and you may have - you will have noted all the radio chatter (and beeps) as the crew played the “Mother May I” game before they fired.

You were close,

It was an M110-SASS and there was no suppressor on the barrel. And absoluely, was NOT an AR10.
