OOH-RAH! (Proud mother of a Marine)
You should be VERY proud!
…and for much less than the cost of a hellfire! Didn’t know those guns were so quiet, that that was just in the movies.
And that’s without a silencer.
Good shot, marine!
and who said the AR platform wasn’t accurate…
just a little 7.62 ventilation
Nice Shootin’ Tex!
Fish in a barrel. islamo in a dustbowl. Poor fish.
The AR-10 is a very lethal platform
Good shootin !
One more Jihadi to the big Mosque in the sky
I meant it rhetorically…
I know how accurate it is… because I have one….
although not with the 26″ bull barrel… but a more manageable 16″ bull barrel
My first thought too, @Peter: Such a quiet shot for a huge calibre weapon. My .22 bolt action rifle is much louder. 700 meters, truly?
This is a very good video to post. It doesn’t sensationalize, only one shot was necessary, no wasted resources and very fast.
Buy those gentlemen a beer!
A “reporter” asked a sniper ” Do you feel anything when you shoot someone?”
Snipers responce “yes, recoil.”
My Marines don’t miss…….EVER !……..SEMPER FI !
