Canadian sniper sets world record with 2.2-mile pickoff of ISIS fighter

2.2-mile pickoff of ISIS fighter.... :salute: :salute:

A Canadian sniper set what appears to be a record, picking off an ISIS fighter from some 2.2 miles away, and disrupting a potentially deadly operation by the terror group in Iraq.

Shooting experts say the fatal shot at a world-record distance of 11,316 feet underscores how stunningly sophisticated military snipers are becoming. The feat, pulled off by a special forces sniper from Canada’s Joint Task Force 2, smashed the previous distance record for successful sniper shots by some 3,280 feet, a record set by a British sniper.

“ ... the true challenge here was being able to calculate the actual wind speed and direction all the way to the target.”
- Ryan Cleckner, former U.S. Army Ranger sniper

Canadian Sniper Breaks World Record with two-mile shot

A Canadian soldier killed an ISIS militant from two miles away in Iraq last month, breaking the world record for longest confirmed kill. The Globe and Mail reports the shooter was a member of Joint Task Force 2 and he made the historic shot from a high-rise building. The sniper used a McMillian TAC-50 sniper rifle and it took the bullet under 10 seconds to hit its target. The Globe and Mail reports the kill was verified by video

Great shot indeed!!!!!!!!!! I read that it took the bullet ten seconds to travel that distance-and for him (the sniper) to be THAT good--he's more than earned my fullest respect............
