    Canadian Sniper Kills ISIS Fighter From Over 2 Miles Away

    A combination of the spotter and the sniper. Quite an achievement. As we see in the article, everything has to go perfectly over the distance of 11,316 feet!

    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.

    Simply amazing! It's like sending off a ballistic missile from anywhere and having it go around the globe and land on it's launching pad - unguided other than it's initial aiming at launch. That was quite a feat! (I feel good hitting the target at 100 yards with a scoped 308!)
