    WARNING!! May be graphic to some. More than likely be funny to others!

    Canadian sniper making 2 of the longest record holding shots ever. I guess the Canadians do help us in this war.

    I believe the longest recorded sniper kill was by a Canadian soldier in Afghanistan with a McMillan Tac-50. Unsure of the distance though. Gunny Hathcock held it before.

    The longest range recorded sniper kill was a Canadian, personally I thought Carlos Hathcock still held the record from 1967 in Vietnam at 2,286 meters (2,500 yds / 1.420 miles).

    The longest range recorded for a sniper kill currently stands at 2,430 meters (2,657 yd, or 1.51 miles), accomplished by Master Corporal Rob Furlong, a sniper from Newfoundland, Canada, in March 2002 during the war in Afghanistan. Furlong made this record-breaking kill while he was participating in Operation Anaconda. He was a member of the 3rd Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry (PPCLI). To make the kill, he used a .50 caliber BMG (12.7 mm) McMillan TAC-50 bolt-action rifle.[9]

    quote (likely not exact but as best I recall it ) from the book about the life of Carlos. Marine Corps Sniper.

    "I told you not to shoot ! You missed him ! I didn't miss, they just flop around like that when their head shot. "
