Cool Forgotten Weapons merch!

When talking about antitank rifles, I often hear people ask why such things were not fitted with telescopic sights and used as snipers’ rifles. So today, I figured I’d take a few minutes to explain the various reasons why…starting with why Carlos Hathcock’s scoped M2 Browning was not the same thing and does not apply to this question.
