Canadian sniper crushes engagement record in Mosul
« on: June 23, 2017, 05:56:06 AM »
A Canadian sniper with their national CT unit has decisively set a new record for longest recorded sniper kill, hitting an ISIS fighter at more than 3500 meters with a MacMillan TAC-50 sniper rifle.  It beats the previous record by over a 1000 meters.  Jesus, Mary and Joseph that is a long freaking way.  Hats off to him.
