I have seen a few photos of odd, funny and unusual sniper rifles, the way they have their optics attached. Also strange shooting positions.  Here are a couple of pics I found do y'all have any to post?
 
 
How would you like to be this guys spotter?

Good Lord.  The poor spotter won't have a cheek to weld to once that clam shell brake spits gas.

If the guy in back is pulling the trigger, then the guy in front is about to become a casualty.
Life's concerns should be about the 120lb pack your trying to get to the top of the mountain, and not the rock in your boot.

When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.
