Just curious, when the police snipers have to shoot animals, do the sniper rifles they use become hunting rifles?
I carried a sniper rifle in LE, a Remington 700 BDL Varmint in 223. Also had to shoot a lot of animals, mainly moose after vehicle/moose incounters. I didn't use the rifle, I used a Model 28 Smith in 357.
It wasn't a sniper rifle or hunting rifle, it was a service revolver.
