You never lose it, apparently...

Via a friend on Facebook....

A 85-year old US Battle of the Bulge sniper vet gets given, first, one of the rifles he'd have used back then, and manages 3/3 at 300 yards. He then gets handed a Remington 700 and a crash course in the US Army's technique involving a spotter... "I couldn’t even dream in a thousand years how you would even see the target, yet alone hit it."

Three shots within 5 inches of each other.

Not bad :D

Full story here (apologies that it's a Daily Mail link!)

  1. Now that's amazing! He proves US snipers were the real deal too and not just Germans, Finns and Soviets in WWII who seem to get all the laurels.
