Perhaps he wasn't even standing still?

The badass Canuck could have been some sort of Rain Man motherfucker, who allowed for the target's velocity and probable vector, as well as the wind, humidity, curvature of the planet, etc etc.    :)

What kind of rifle scope can see a target that far away?

 

Can anyone post pictures please, this must be one amazing setup

 

Thank you

Hope Tim Hortons send him a fresh pot right to the front lines for making that shot

KeezyDoesIt - Canada has a military?

I really hate these kinds of comments .   Canadians fought and died alongside all the other allies troops in all major wars .

 

fuck off

Sitting in a vehicle maybe?

Also, I wonder how many shots it took to get the hit. A guy could make several shots at that distance and nobody near the target would know what was happening.

doubt it was jtf2. someone from caf should chime in but i seem to remember that snipers are advanced infrantry who are assgined in different units rather than joining the specialized jtf2, which is an anti-terrorist unit.

maybe he waited for him to take a piss...or maybe it was prairer time on his rug. Or maybe he was strapping on a suicide vest. Maybe he was texting...yeah texting that had to be it.

That should count for three confirmed kills.

I'm gonna say it was a great shot.

 

But I'll also hedge my bets that he just aimed and set up his calculations to try and land in the biggest crowd of people , rather than a sole target,and he got a bit of luck .

Superhuman, bravo that man.

I could probably hit a car at 1K but a man at 3.5K barely seems possible under pressure, first shot, preavailing weather, guy must have ice in his veins.

Can someone tell me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the spotter do most of the nerdy shit?
