Stadium Snipers

Operators who operate in sporting event operations:

These videos do a good job making normal shooting ranges look mundane.  I wish I knew these guys so I could come take a few shots.

Interesting to see, but kind of unsettling that such snipers actually exist considering the sheer volume of people packed so tightly in the area.   I guess they are counting on the crowd dispersing around any threats such as active shooters.  I wonder if the AR-15 in the 2nd video is giggle switch equipped?

Confirmed light beer in hand; Section 18 Row 38 Seat 12.  Tango is about to take a sip. ENGAGE!

Thoughts?

“I wish I knew these guys so I could come take a few shots.”

I’m not sure if you want to shoot them with a camera or…
Nonetheless I saw on the second video at 0:48 a guy sportin’ tactical ‘stache.

And thus we now have a glimpse into how security will be handled when the Teleprompter in Chief and its human mouthpiece goes to stadiums to talk about the 99% in the 57 States this upcoming electoral year.

That looks a lot like the old Cotton Bowl stadium in Dallas, Fair Park area.

You know, I really think it might be..

I was thinking the same thing. Checked out the article the vids came from and it turns out it is the Cotton Bowl.

Badass.

Now let’s hope we don’t go further down the police state rat hole and have snipers being a regular occurrence at stadiums.
