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.

Now ,what we have here is a fine example of gun control.
Why is it that the same people who use science to convince you of Global Warming,refuse DNA Science that proves you are male or female.

Government solves few problems that it does not first create.

Stop complaining about life and start Celebrating it .

I've reached the age where there is little left to learn the hard way.

If you had only one year,one month,or one day...Would you live your life differently?

Radios are pointless without someone trained to use them.
