Some "insurgent" got dusted off of a rooftop by a Barrett. Through my Bradley thermals it was pretty gruesome looking. The 10th mountain sniper plugged him at a good 1200 meters. Just thought you guys would enjoy that.

1200 meters.

Nice shooting.

I've tried taking pics though the thermals several times, because that stuff is an every day occurance here in Sadr City. They just dont come out right. Plus, the Army sort of frowns on that stuff. Sorry.

Can you hook a camera up to your thermal? That'd be some 'killer" footage.
Link Posted: 9/3/2004 7:03:30 AM EST
too bad you didn't light him up with your 25mm gun...but I'll take it

Do it with a .308 then I'll be impressed. I'm not much on sniping shitheads with a .50.

I don't give a shit if he gets sniped with a M198. I'm just glad he got the motherfucker.

May be inappropriate, but my thought was: Now you're going to have to go kill his whole family, too. Sure as hell they'll be out for blood when they see the gruesome mess that was their loved one. Good luck over there, I guess.

Dammit- You beat me to it.

Seriously, thanks for posting it. I'm old enough, and wise enough to know better, but I wish I could trade places with you for a month. Reference the terrorist attack in Russia thread.... Those are the type of people you are fighting.

Get a few, and get home safe. - Bill

Yeah, maybe next time he'll just sneak up on the insurgent and cap him with his Baretta just to make YOU happy. Geeeesh, some people.

At 1200 meters what difference is a 4 tenths of an inch?

Yeah, I felt really bad for the nice gentleman who was trying his best to get a nice RPG shot at me. Next time I'll try to be more culturally sensative to these peace-loving people. Why don't you come over here and get aquainted with a few of them? I'm sure they'll accept you with open arms. And his family can thank me for not opening up with 25mm H.E. and silencing the whole nest. Have a nice day....I guess.

Well, if that's what it takes.

There are some folks who cannot help but eat foot all day. Doesn't bother me in the least that his family takes offense. Besides, most of these idiots do not use their own homes to fire from. They're not from around Sadr City, probably not Iraqi's, but Iranian and Saudi, etc.

Well then what do you think they should have done? The guy was a threat to our troops I repeat our troops. You dont kill him, he will kill our guys you do kill him and it makes his family mad..

Which one would you chose?
