New Record

A British sniper has set a new record for the long shot by bagging not one, but two Talibani at a distance of 8,120 ft, just over 1-1/2 miles. The two were servicing a belt-fed machine gun in an attack on Brit soldiers at the time.
Harrison killed one machine gunner with his first attempt and felled the other with his next shot. He then let off a final round to knock the enemy weapon out of action.
Destroying their weapon at that distance is really rubbing their noses in it. The rifle manufacturer says that at that distance, luck begins to be a large factor, but hey, if you're on a roll...
