    Just a tad over two miles
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    note the position of the shooter on the right in the 1st video . Appears to me he is ahead of the main shooter and shooting across the line of fire of the main shooter.?????

    Yep brave alright!
    I like the last two words in article, "and hoped". Similar to what the sniper said to his spotter after shooting a guy with a M24 308 at about 3/4 of a mile "holy shit did you see that !!"
    More ya shoot....... luckier ya get. LOL

    I be pretty pleased with myself though.

    Good marksmanship skils, but didn't like the way the second shooter was in front of the first? Not the best example of safe shooting.
