          Draft age has no real upper age limit if they are actually intent on conscripting people. 18-25 is just who they will pull from first, but if they still need more watch how fast they raise the age limit.

    Snipers are hated, actually. They're almost always psychopaths. Normal soldiers can get away with never intentionally killing anyone, a lot of the time they're just shooting to suppress enemy movement and not even really aiming to hit anyone. If they do kill somebody it's practically on accident. Snipers shoot to kill, they deliberately mark somebody for death then end their life, and they know that they did it and not somebody else's random spray of bullets. They also use utterly depraved tactics to lure out enemies, like shooting one person to wound them so his cries of distress lure out his friends, so the sniper can then pick them off one by one.

    Snipers are scum.

        modern HEAT is still deadly to tanks, all modern AT weapons use that principle except for certain tank rounds but since 1970s there were maybe 2 tank on tank skirmishes so it's irrelevant
        and how would you imagine such counter to look like? lets say an EMP system could be viable for tanks and big vehicles that could power them, infantry will still be vulnerable
        artillery is still a death sentence for infantry personnel, think of drones like of artillery shells but precisely delivered - even more dangerous

        The only ranges around me go out to 1000 yards so that's the max I've ever gotten to. I never win but it's fun.

        Would it be better if I just took firearms training classes and never buy a gun since a bow and arrow is cheaper and I don't get lead in the meat? Or should I buy a hunting rifle and practice with that?

        just get a cheap rem700adl 308 or something. They are like $150 and are effective at least 500yards if you practice. You'll be able to drop a whitetail with a clean shot with one of those.

    Yeah. Somehow they make movies about golf, too. I'll never get it.
