I have seen a few photos of odd, funny and unusual sniper rifles, the way they have their optics attached. Also strange shooting positions.  Here are a couple of pics I found do y'all have any to post?
 
 
How would you like to be this guys spotter?
What pictures do you have?

Good Lord.  The poor spotter won't have a cheek to weld to once that clam shell brake spits gas.

Good way to watch a vapor trail, assuming no chance of a secondary target or  a second shot, or safety, or hearing.

If the guy in back is pulling the trigger, then the guy in front is about to become a casualty.

Is that a Mosin in the first pic ? Take a look at the bolt handle. That should wrench the case right out.
