That Conspiracy buffs like yourself refuse to accept that evidence is fine but don't expect reasonable people to take you seriously.

No !  Leatherneck.com- Kennedy Assassination : Legendary Marine Corps sniper Carlos Hathcock is likewise skeptical of Oswald's alleged shooting feat. Hathcock is a former senior instructor at the U.S. Marine Corps Sniper Instruction School of Quantico , Virginia. He has been described as the most famous American Military sniper in History as of 7-29-07 ( the day of this posting in Leatherneck.com). In Vietnam he was credited with 93 confirmed kills. He conducted police Swat team sniper schools across the country. Craig Roberts asked Hathcock about the marksmanship feat attributed to Oswald by the Warren Commission. Hathcock answered that he did not believe Oswald could have done what the Commission said he did.   Added Hathcock : " Let me tell you what we did at Quantico. We reconstructed the whole thing: the angle, the range, the moving target, the time limit, the obstacles, everything. I don't know how many times we tried it, but we couldn't duplicate what the Warren Commission said Oswald did". (Kill Zone, pp. 89-90). Gunny Hathcock has gone on his last patrol (passed on). God keep you Gunny

Thus proving that Oswald was a better shot under pressure...

Do you have any arguments that aren't circular?  Any at all?

Matt,
Who can prove Oswald was even using that cheap 4x18 scope mounted on the Carano rifle? There is no reason why he could not have used the rifle's iron sights. Faster performance and certainly capable of the accuracy at that distance. I used the same powered scope many times and it's cumbersome and time consuming to use. Now, if Oswald was a shooter on the sixth floor, and did use the scope, you usually have to zero in the scope by making the first shot a test shot to see where the bullet goes. Hence, the tree limb, the overhead sign post, or the concrete curbing on the south side of Elm Street. You don't buy a scoped mail order rifle and commence firing it with that accuracy as shown with General Walker and then Kennedy. He would have to had used and practiced with it once in a while somewhere. I recall his USMC qualification was only marksmen. Could it have been done? Sure. But I don't think we know the full facts, and never will.

Three shots in six seconds at a moving target ......that was behind a tree.....   Do you think Lee Oswald or anybody could have accomplished the feat?

Could it have been done?   No definitely not!

A  semi-automatic weapon, with the best scope money can buy, and the proper ammo, one man would be capable of pulling off a couple of rounds accurately. A stiff, 20 year old bolt action rifle with 20 year old Western Cartridge ammo, a scope out of alignment at a moving target at that distance, in that time limit, with at least 2 hits and probably one miss? I don't buy it. I also qualified as a marksmen. Not that good. Tens of thousands of guys better than me. So what we have is a least one known round fired from behind. I don't think anyone questions a shot or more from behind. Many witnesses heard three shots, and it happens three spent shell casings, along with a rifle were found on the sixth floor of the TSBD. Open and shut case for the Dallas PD it seems. Scopes are for snipers, and are very effective for their purpose, but under these time constraints using a bolt action rifle, Oswald would have to be an expert with that particular rifle and extremely lucky. As I said, many unanswered questions.
