This video brought tears to my eyes. WWII vet is given a replica of his old rifle, and shows that he hasn't lost any of his skills. Then gets to try a 1000 yard shot with more modern equipment. ... r_embedded

All I have to say is... 3 head shots at 1000 yds? Wow. I'd be lucky to hit the target once.
Thanks for posting that. That's one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time.

I saw this on facebook a few hours ago, just amazing. Great post! :righton:
wow, just wow.

He reminds me so much of my grandfather, who served in WW2 as well. Brought tears to my eyes as well.
Awesome, just awesome! Thanks for sharing!

This definitely ranks amongst the best videos I've ever seen! Thanks! I'll dry my keyboard now.
:D Glad to read that I wasn't the only one to get "something in my eye". I lost 2 great-uncles on my father's side in WWII. According to my dad, I would have really liked both of them.
