Thank you for those additional details ...Joe.
I am assuming (so far) the board accepts the shots were not that hard because there has been no pushback as yet on this thread
 :thumbs1xx:

Wrong assumption ... not relevant unless you have evidence that Oswald was on the 6th floor @12.30.

What have you got?

Oswald also was trained in the indispensable requirement of zeroing a re-assembled rifle.  Understand his Marine Corps Score Book and you learn that they sometimes re-zeroed after each shot.

Oswald had eight months to practice using the scope.  With an undamaged re-zeroed scope that turns an 88-yard shot into a 22-yard shot, why use the iron sights?

Do you mean without a scope!

Evidence please!

While use of the Scope or Iron sights is certainly of value and endlessly fascinating

 in the last analysis it doesn't matter much compared to the relative ease of the shots compared to his training.
(as shown clearly above)


Agreed, James.  Oswald also had a big advantage he didnít have in the Marines.  He could stabilize the muzzle on those carefully placed boxes.

Much is made of the moving target but Oswald positioned himself in the SE corner to minimize the apparent movement to only 3 degrees right and 12 degrees up.  With the limo moving less than 15 mph, it was almost like shooting at a stationary target.

Excellent videos.

Especially when the SS driver failed to follow a direct order from his senior agent and drive off, instead decided that he too needed to look around to see what happening which slowed the car even further.
Or the fact that that LBJ's SS man covered him, Hill managed to chase the car, get on aboard the car to provide physical cover but the SS in the car just decided that he was not going to get between the President and a bullet.

No conspiracy just SS failures
