Army Fields a New Sniper Rifle
According to The Armed Services Job Blog:
U.S. Army will be shipping new XM2010 sniper rifles to U.S. snipers in Afghanistan in the next few months. The new long-range weapon is capable of hitting targets up to 4,000 feet away—or nearly a quarter-mile farther than current sniper rifles.
Here's hoping to see a civilian version of it sometime soon - even if it will be quite a bit outside of my price range.
