    Wow, just wow! And I think Hitting the bull at 100 yards is good!!!

    Never even heard the shot!


    It was silent but deadly.

    A British sniper set a world sharpshooting record by taking out two Taliban soldiers in Afghanistan from more than a mile and a half away -- a distance so great, experts say the terrorists wouldn't have even heard the shots.

    Craig Harrison killed the two insurgents from an astounding distance of 8,120 feet -- or 1.54 miles -- in Helmand Province last November firing an Accuracy International L11583 long-range rifle.

    "The first round hit a machine-gunner in the stomach and killed him outright," said Harrison, a corporal of horse in the British Army's Household Cavalry, the equivalent of a sergeant in the American military.

    They discuss it like old chaps who just picked off baboons on a safari. I love it.

    This is hardly the first 1.5 mile shot I've heard of since 9/11. Wonder how they determined it was the world record over others.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
