I'm more impressed with them being able to do calculations in their head.
Can't even kill a mutha without Math.

I have a buddy who was a Navy SEAL...guess where he got his sniper training? Yup...the Marines. From what he's told me a 1 mile kill really isn't shit on that gun. It is definitely an accomplishment, but it isn't difficult for a properly trained sniper to do it. Pretty much any solid "body hit" is a killshot. There are also a lot more "off the books" kills at even greater range according to him.

All I know...I want one!

What impressed me was the sniper that took out that pirate a little while ago. Pirate was in a life raft and the sniper was on a ship deck. I could not even imagine that with the two boats moving.

the shot on the ship was only about 30 yards but the timing was what is great, one pop and 3 drop .

When I was stationed at Pendleton, my good buddy and fellow motorT guy was assigned to 3rd recon (bad mofos in their own right). I would hang with these guys, and about 4 times a year they would train with SEALs, let me tell you about Navy Seals, these guys are the baddest motherfuckers on the planet. I mean really special human beings, the stories they told me, blew my mind. Everyone of them, to a man, was a specimen. They could out drink-you, out-fight you and outsmart you.
I'm just glad their on our side.

+1, while a mile killshot is an accomplishment, that .50 cal will decimate any human being it hits. And, according to the video, the rounds he was using for it were an explosive round designed to penetrate the block wall they were behind.. From what I got, even if the round didn't necessarily hit its mark, the aftermath took care of it for him.. Remember, there were 3 insurgents behind that wall and from the look of it he tagged all 3 of them.

Still, you gotta respect the skills of any trained sniper, marines or otherwise.
