POTD: National Guard With New MK 22 Sniper Rifles

The hungriest beast of them all on TFB is our Photo Of The Day. It consumes hundreds of images every month, and it has been starving for over 9 years. Sometimes these images find themselves, and sometimes we have to dig them out, but we hope they give you a diverse experience from the world of firearms. Here’s the Barrett MRAD adopted as the MK 22 Advanced Sniper Rifle by the U.S. military, as now used by some of the National Guard.

Below: If you have a sniper rifle you need a proper shooting range. And a spotter.
