    Our ceramic plates, if the Iranians have done their homework.

  8. How long before some of these rifles start making an appearance in Iraq? I'll wager within three months of their delivery...I wonder what odds the bookies would give me?

    They have to know how to use a rifle like that correctly first don't they, aren't big calibre rifles challenging to shoot with any degree of accuracy?
  10. I've heard of demo's of .50 rifles putting a hole straight through 4 ceramic plates at 600m and I can believe it. Any appearance of these next door to Iran will really set alarm bells ringing
  11. I think the Royal Marines use the M95, .50 arn't really for anti-persnal sniper rifles I was always told they were for demolition of mines and explosives.

    Can any sort of personal body armour stop them?
