Dayuuum what a shot...I mean two shots.
An army sniper has earned a place in military history by killing two Taliban machine gunners from more than a mile and a half away.
Craig Harrison’s record breaking shots felled the insurgents with consecutive bullets – even though they were 3,200ft beyond the official range of his rifle.
The Household Cavalry veteran’s kills from a distance of 8,120ft beat the previous record by 150ft.
He was using the British-built L115A3 Long Range Rifle, the Army’s most powerful sniper weapon.
. . . What might be more amazing is that Corporal Harrison survived a roadside bomb attack that broke both his arms with no affect to his accuracy. — GP

Impressive would be a huge understatement.
