  6. Looks like THE HISTORY CHANNEL will have to update history a little!
    Awesome shot by Cpl. Harrison. As a former US Marine ground pounder that’s a hell of a shot ( 3X at that).

  7. Records been beat i’m afraid.

    “British Corporal Craig Harrison killed two Taliban with consecutive shots at a distance of 2.47 kilometres (8120 ft) in Helmand Province, Afghanistan in November (2009). He then fired a third shot and hit the Taliban’s PKM machinegun in perhaps the most prodigious feat of marksmanship in military history.”

    • Craig is really modest about it too. Whenever he is asked about it, he plays down his achievement and always says how good the conditions were.

      Hell of a shot, hell of a guy!
