    I'm laughing and terrified by this at the same time. A 22 is what boy scouts shoot. The longest confirmed kills on record are what? 1,800 yds? But with a .50 cal Barrett.

    Edit: JFC, the Barrett M82 is the official state rifle of Tennessee

    Current record for long distance confirmed kill would no doubt be held by an American president.

    Yeah but wasn’t that the Canadian guy who didn’t have it exactly confirmed?

    Yep, that's what 2+ km translates too

    When you have to account for the rotation of the earth while your shot is in the air, you are a ways out

    Yeah, but there’s a big difference between 2+ km and 3.5 km.

    Yea, 2300-2400m seems to be the accepted top range and then you have the one, single shot at 3500m. It's a significant jump to that point. I wonder how long that shot was flying. Had to have been a few seconds at least.

    Several. If these things are going Mach 2, it’s still 5 seconds.

    Edit: looms like the muzzle velocity was 2,500 ft/s. So something like 1.4-2 seconds.

    More rightwing fundy terrorist cosplay. This time a whole school of it, promoted by a member of the WA state leg. Whee!

    In a July 2016 email, a man identified as Team Rugged’s leader, Patrick Caughran, told Shea that the group’s purpose was “to provide patriotic and biblical training on war for young men,” including learning “combatives, the use of a knife in defense, close quarters shooting with rifle and pistol and how to work effectively in teams of 2, 3 and 4.”

    Caughran said training scenarios included ones in which young men would “fight against one of the most barbaric enemies that are invading our country, Muslim terrorists.”

    A year later, Shea posted a video on Facebook in which he interviewed two Team Rugged associates on Facebook. One described the group to the lawmaker as “a school of learning for young men to give them all the foundational learning and skills that they need to be effective in Christian warfare.” Shea gushed about a video he had seen showing their skills, saying it looked like an “acrobatic special forces team.”

    The Guardian also reported that Shea “paid the founder of the group money from his campaign fund in 2018.”
