    Great shot at 84 he can still knock'em down at 1000 yds with a modern sniper rifle. Thank you very much

    That video almost made me cry. It's amazing the respect that modern military gives vets vs the respect today's military gets from the general population.

    To add a little perspective, 1000 yards is slightly more than 1/2 mile.

    Also note that he had a 3 shot group of 5 inches at that distance.
    It's a mechanical device, designed by humans, built by humans and operated by humans. What could possibly go wrong?
