history of sniper rifles
« on: June 26, 2007, 09:14:00 AM »

Since I'm ever so impressed with the detailed knowledge of guns displayed here, I'll ask my question.

I'm also using a sniper, but mine is active in 1763 in Germany.  They had rifles then, but I'm vague about some of the finer details.  My assumption is that I can pretty much use Bernard Cornwell for technique, but if any of you gentlemen have some fascinating facts (or web sites) to share, I'd be very grateful.

If you can't find it here then it never was.   ;)

Make that 1763!

Deb's list is a bit hit-and-miss, mostly British/American.  Just like the libraries.

But thanks, Lee.

Oh well, sorry. But you have to admit, she has a ton of information on her site. I've never seen anything like it.
