I busy constructing the sequel to my last book. A key character has been a sniper in Afghanistan, but has accepted discharge, come home to the states, had a conflict with his family, and walked into the wilderness to live alone.
I think he is armed with the closest civilian equivalent of one of the Afghani sniper rifles, but without a scope or other techno advantages. This guy wants to be permitted to miss when he's trying to shoot a deer.
Anybody want to chime in?
