Sorry I'm not to knowledgeable in the long-range category. Are you planning on doing some big game hunting?

I just picked this up yesterday. Can't wait to get to the range with it.

This is my poor attempt at amateur photography.

I would say leupold scope and harris bi-pod. I am looking at getting a similar rifle, but manufactured by DPMS. They really aren't sniper rifles, cuz they are .223, but they are still real fun and are good out past 200. This will have to hold me over until I win the lotto and get my H&K PSG1 and my Barrett Arms .50cal

That piece is actually my favorite Air Gun... yes Air Gun....it's very cool... the tank in the back fills to 3000 PSi... it shoot's a .22 Cal Pellet that gun is awesome..

it's made by : http://www.airforceairguns.com/talon_ss2.html

very nice...kinda pricy though...

I don't have any real pistols.... I live in the city of NY and it's impossible to get a handgun permit around here... I've been waiting a year now.... it took 6 months to get my rifel permit...man it's crazy here..
