    Default Inside The Sniper's Nest At Last Year's Super Bowl

    Inside The Sniper's Nest At Last Year's Super Bowl

    Robert Johnson | Feb. 3, 2013, 6:24 PM

    These pictures surfaced just hours after Lucas Oil Stadium hosted last year's Super Bowl XLVI.

    Unknown to fans watching the biggest sporting event of the year, there was also at least one well-equipped sniper in attendance.

    The rifle is mounted on a tripod manufactured by Alamo Four Star, and they posted the pictures online never imagining they'd become as popular as they did.

    We talked to Alamo and confirmed that's an Indianapolis SWAT team member manning a custom built Remington M700 in a XLR Industries chassis, sitting atop an Alamo Four Star DCLW shooting tripod.

    Alamo received the photos from a ranking member of the SWAT team and said their tripod has a locking mechanism that grabs the rail of the rifle without scratching or damaging the surface.

    No reason to think there's not another one just like it set up in New Orleans right now.

    Here's hoping our game never transcends into something that will require action of this calibre.

    Nice pun..

    ..........and agree with what you said. It would freak me out if I saw this at a game. Not knowing if he was was one of the good guys....or he was a good guy and he saw his missus in the crowd with her lover.

    I am twisted.

    Perfect solution to a poor refereeing decision.

    Geesh, never actually considered snipers would be around in such events. Opportunities are endless apparently. Cool photos though!

    I often tell my sons when a player pulls a hamstring that the sniper has got him...now I have proof!
