Though Squint is the gun writer everyone loves to hate ("I tell it like it is," he reminds us on every page), he has a devoted following, and every gun he writes about gets a sales boost. But that's where the problems begin, as we'll see when we consider Squint's latest field test, an in-depth look at the new Austrian-made Super Sniper. He reports that because of its unique reverse-ratchet rifling and laser-aligned firing pin, the Super Sniper will punch a tidy cloverleaf group at 100 meters without half trying. "Wow!" you react. "It's the Alpha Male of rifles," Squint says, noting its sexy banana-clip magazines and camo-patterned thumbhole stock made of space-age polymer plastic. Squint says the paramilitary look is fashionable for hunting rifles these days and the Super Sniper would be his number-one choice for close-up-and-personal encounters with feral hogs and beasts of similar temperament. "Wow!" again you say. That settles it. You're convinced. You gotta have the first Super Sniper in town. Just wait until the guys out at the gun club see you cut those tiny cloverleaf groups. Heck, Squint says if the shooter does his part, the bullets will all go in one ragged hole.
