An amazing shot. Other sources cite the rifle as a McMillan TAC-50, a five shot, bolt action, 0.5 MOA, .50 BMG rifle made in Arizona. The complexity of the ballistics calculation and the skill of the shooter to hit a man from 2.15 miles away is dumbfounding  :o

Yes, I heard also that it was a McMillan Tac-50.  McMillan makes some good sniper rifles!   ;)

1776 will commence again if you try to take our firearms... It doesn't matter how many Lenins you get out on the street begging for them to be taken.
