Reach Out And Touch Someone: Longest Confirmed Sniper Shot In History

sniper kills.jpg

The ballistic calculations are impressive, but observation of the conditions across two miles of space plays a huge part. And all of this while in combat. Canadian special forces sniper kills an ISIS fighter from TWO MILES away in the longest confirmed kill shot in history
And I love the touchy-feely euphemism for killed: "disrupted!"

It must be a tremendously demoralizing circumstance when every now and then somebody around you gets shot, and you have no idea where the bullet came from, and probably didn't even hear it.
