Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

I've only been about to about 1200.  I'll need more weapon to get out that far.  I have eyeballed that CheyTac 408 for some time now...... 

But in the immortal words of Frank Gali, the retired Marine Corps sniper with whom I've trained....

"meh, beyond 1000, I'll just phone in an air strike and unwrap a snickers bar.  I don't want to give away my position and that's generally outside the margin of error for a pilot to drop ordinance"

Because somebody could......think about the psychological effect on a bunch of terrorist, that they gotta worry about a 2 mile perimeter on just terra firma!  :likebutton:

And I thought the previous was going to be tough to beat.
This really raised the bar...

I'm with ya on calling it in and staying concealed.
That's just too dang far. Wow.

I just don't want to wind up missing a digit or limb.  I can sometimes get in a hurry to get results.

Now, if that guy sitting a foot below the crosshairs is the one who laid in the IED that took out your buddy, I'd take the shot just to watch him drop!

Then follow with one-five-five
