I didn't know the Canadians were getting involved on the middle East. Good to see.

I'm glad the record is back with the .50 BMG. But regardless, there is a ton of luck involved in a shot at that distance.

An impossible shot, never to be repeated. Pure luck.

Was watching a YouTube video about snipers and discovered a decorated Russian sniper who died quite young, 20 years old. Roza Shanina is her name and Id love to have met her.

59 confirmed kills in a little over a year. What a gal!

My Mosins are still one of my favorite rifles to shoot, even among my modern stuff.

She also lived in a, "target rich environment".

I can't think of a better target for the world record sniper shot than some ISIS idiot.

Yes Roza Shanina had a target rich environment- times were good, she made the best of it.

59 kills in a year with a Mosin? She had one tough shoulder too. Mosins do their thing violently on both ends from the kick to the incredible muzzle flash.

There were German, and Russian snipers in that War that racked up hundreds and hundreds of kills. Only witnessed and verified kills count, so there true number is likely twice as high.

I just read a book written by a German WW2 sniper, and I learned quite a lot of tactics from him. He accounts to a time that he single handily saved him and his friends and wiped out an entire Russian squad, like 20 men. Fascinating read, even if he was on the wrong side of history.

Snipers were to be instantly killed if captured, so he carried a regular infantry rifle, as well as his sniper rifle, which he could discard if needed. Even made good use of a captured Russian Mosin if I remember correctly.
