    We lost the title of the longest killshot in the world by 150 feet :mad:

    the good news is twon more dirt bags are dead and the last thing that went through their minds wasnt Allah! :cool:

    Military observers are marvelling at a British sniper, revealed this week to have killed two Taliban fighters from a mountain perch 2.47 kilometres away. The story of these shots is being heard around the world as a feat of marksmanship without parallel in history.

    Sadly, the news also puts an end to some national bragging rights: Until now, the Canadian Forces had claimed the world’s best sniper shot.

    There really are honest to God people here who do not think that Canada has a military.

    Saw that yesterday, incredible shooting! And if I may, I see Nick where you are a member of the Princess Pats Canadian Light Infantry.......You and your Colleagues are very highly respected by anyone who has been following what is happening in Afghanistan. My buddies and I have sat in the Firehouse and watched your Buddies being brought home the hard way.

    Stay safe and continue kicking ass my friend.
