What would a retired sniper be doing with a M 24?

It's just an optimized Remington 700. You can buy them on GunBroker.

Well, dang it. It would have been a great news article if it were REAL. :mad5

So we've all been hearing a lot about "fake news" in the real (?) news lately, but I guess I did not realize that it was such an evolved industry as this.

I don't get it. Somebody explain it to me, seriously. What's the purpose? Somebody goes to a lot of expense and trouble to operate these fake news businesses. For what? Money? Aren't there better and more honorable and easier ways to make money? And no, I'm not upset that I got snookered (well, not too much anyway). I just really don't understand the purpose of it. :headscratch

Showing my age I suppose... :roll:

Its about collecting web traffic which generates advertising revenue.

Outlandish believable headlines get lots of click.
