you ought to see what happens when they hit people directly
at 2500 yards after they go through an inch of steel plate.

New sniper rifles are pretty potent.

Hi Steve and Steve,
One of the jewellers in the shop I used to work in had a friend
Afghanistan who is a sniper. His team used 50 cal. on the bad guys without
any armor. He sent back a the video feed from there scopes that
have built in video camera. I can't share this one with you guys because
I wouldn't want to get these fellas in trouble. Those fools in the first video
were really lucky. If the bullet had actually hit the shooter, he wouldn't
of had a head. From what I saw, it would have ripped out the shooter
back bone also. While watching the first video of Steve's I couldn't bereave
what they doing.

most people dont havea clue what a 50 will do

you dont have to get hit by it either
the hot sniper loads will pull your brains out of your ears at a distance of 12 inches if you miss

When I was in Nam my little truck had quad 50's twin 81 mortors in the back and a 30 cal chingun mounted on the cab of the truck. Needless to say it brought new meaning to the word weed whacker.

re you video - depends on what they say or do
chances are its nothing new compared to whats on live leak
which got some wicked footage,
