: I saw a trailer about a sniper movie recently.
: It was about Stalingrad I believe, the

: Ed Harris played the Nazi, I think..

and/or "dramatic" it will be once Hollywood get's

: I saw the movie poster in the lobby too, and
the bolt is on the left side of the reciever......
: Considering how many Russian left-handed, bolt
action, sniper's rifles were made during WWII,
: take this to be a bad sign.
: It costs them just as much to do something
right as it does to do it wrong....
: (Sometimes MORE- Gladiator comes to mind.....)
: Yet they still usually blow it.
Yeah, that's a great story(the true and
original "round penetrating the enemy's scope"
bit). If the movie's about that particular sniper
duel it may be good. And it's possible that one
of them may have been left-handed in reality and
had a rifle built for that and the movie portrays
it realisticly. I'll have to look into this
movie. Thanks for the heads-up, fellas.
