Law makers propose Chris Kyle receive the Medal of Honor

Last week Rep. Roger Williams (R-Texas) introduced a bill in congress to posthumously award the Medal of Honor to former Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. It will be interesting to see where the bill goes but we here at Sniper Central support it! Even after a member of congress recommends the Medal of Honor be awarded, the nomination process is fairly long. It involves the request makes it way up a long chain of command including the chief of staff of the U.S. Army, the secretary of the U.S. Army and the secretary of Defense. Only then does it ultimately land on the President’s desk.

Compact SASS in proposed Army budget

We have talked about the request for proposal from the US Army for a compact version of the M110 SASS, known as the CSASS. There was no budget allocated to the project in 2015 but the Army is requesting $2 million in 2016 to get the project moving. They indicate plans to purchase 3600 of the sniper weapon systems. The system sounds as if it is intended to replace the existing M110, but it is hard to tell for sure. Its specified to be more compact, more accurate, have better optics, and reliability, etc. I am a proponent of fielding the CSASS in conjunction with the traditional M24 bolt gun,… Read more »

Friday Update – 30 Jan 2015

Happy Friday to everyone out there! It seems the “American Sniper” movie continues to dominate the Box Office as well as dominate the controversial tweets as well. This probably should not come as any surprise to those of us that have been around Sniping for a long time. Its funny how its no problem at all to make a movie about American heroes, but some of the less knowledgeable folks out there don’t like it if you make a movie about an American Hero… who happens to be a sniper. To them, let them walk about in their ignorant bliss. To those that have ever served our Armed Forces as… Read more »
