2 Different Stories but...

The movie 'Shooter' with Mark Wahlberg is awesome. I loved that movie and am going to buy it asap.

The book 'Shooter' is an autobiography of Jack Coughlin - Marine Sniper in the Iraq war. Best book I have read since the Carlos Hathcock books. Informative and the more I read the less I wanted to stop.

Just my opinions on 'em. Thought I'd share that with ya's.

The movie Shooter is based on the book Point of Impact by Stephen Hunter. The movie was okay, but it was nothing compared to the book. Nothing against Marky Mark, but he is just ain't Bob Lee "Bob the Nailer" Swagger. A lot was changed from the book for the movie. I can understand many of the changes as to do the book completely would have taken a six hour movie.

Saw it this weekend. It was entertaining, but anybody who spends a lot of time shooting at distance will roll their eyes more than once.

Anybody ever try the water bottle suppressor? Think it works so many times? Think it will stay on while firing if you can whisk it off with your fingers afterward?

And where did he get gasoline? That truck probably gets 7 mpg.

I think the movie was only entertaining to gun people and even then some of the things were a bit far-fetched not to mention the entire plot is typical hollywood. The movie was completely predictable, but it was still a little entertaining...
