Man...that is some shot!

The math behind the physics just messes with the head! 

Can't be a but a very small handful of folks even capable of attempting such a feat.  Glad it worked, one less Jihadi animal on the planet and a fine feather in this team's cap.

Now, if the people writing this story can get a more accurate pic of the weapon utilized we won't have to slap people for thinking sniper rifles are belt-fed behemoths.

They didn't bother describing what it did to the Jihadi, I understand that, but again it is a Hollywood myth that it's "poof" a little blood and down goes Mohammad.  No, it's more graphic than that...the kinetic energy will be a mix of vaporization and parts flying hither every direction.  It's a shame Mohammad didn't feel every bit of it.  Oh well, if he had any pals nearby I'm sure they defecated themselves and scattered like scarred rabbits.  Send in the attack choppers to clean up.

Sure hope this fosters more friendly competition!  More, please!   ::thumbsup::

I blame that on the editor, but I could be wrong.

And an awesome shot it was!!!  ::USA::

Hmm. Need a Canadian flag for the occasion.
