Long Range Shooting
Go watch this video. Do it now!
Folks, this is roughly the equivalent of a rifleman shooting a thousand yards and hitting a man sized silhouette (E Type).
Now go watch this one,
This is the equivalent of shooting five hundred yards with a rifle.
I do not intend to equate this with shooting from a bench with a high magnification scope. I mean standing offhand, with an M1A or an M1 Garand, or an LR-308 with Yankee Hill flip-ups...or whatever battle rifle you choose.
Folks shooting is a martial skill! It takes diligence in application, focus of effort, cognitive and analytical ability, and a desire to learn. They say that necessity is the mother of invention. When it becomes necessary, you will find yourself repeating the Obamesiah's mantra...Yes we can!
And you should! Now get to the range and shoot!
