Odd things, those sniper rifles.

This is perhaps one of the most frustrating rules about sniper rifles. If you have good cover, even if it doesn't obscure your view in any way, for example, you're firing through an open window, nice and comfortable, you get a -2 to hit.

Now I understand why they needed someone on the grassy knoll. Oswald had a -2 to hit Kennedy.

Note that being prone more than 20 meters from the target/shooter counts as good cover.

Now who would dare dream of firing a sniper rifle from a prone position?!  Especially at a target 20 or more meters away!  :o

Watch the Quantum Leap episode Donald P. Bellisario made in response to JFK. He took a very detailed look at what was really known about Lee Harvey Oswald.

For a TV episode, it was superior in its collection of facts than the movie which, I feel, was made to cater to the baby boomer conspiricy theorists and get bunches of money.

A movie maker out for a cheap buck?  Egregious!

Quantum Leap now there is a show I haven't heard in awhile lol so did sam jump into Oswald?? was this before or after the switch of who was leaping?

FastJack:
Sam and Al switching was an one-episode deal. After that it was back to just Sam.

He leapt into Oswald, but something was screwy with the leap and he leapt into him multiple times throughout Oswald's life, and Oswald's memories/personality were bleeding over into Sam.
