I was watching a documentary on the Secret Service, and how they emerged from looking for counterfeit money to protecting one of the most important people on the planet. When they got to the snipers they employ, they discussed what the range was for an effective sniper.
I remember Mel Gibson in Lethal Weapon when he said that he "did a guy in Laos" from 1000 yards in high wind and only 8-10 guys in the world could make that shot.
I was kinda shocked when they said the longest "kill" shot on record was made by a Canadian from the P.P.C.L.I. in Afghanistan So I go surfing and found this video.
I'm still kinda shocked!
