A sniper in the Canadian special forces shot and killed an Islamic State (IS) fighter from a distance of 2.1 miles (3,540m) in Iraq last month.

Military sources told Toronto's Globe and Mail newspaper that the gunman is a member of Joint Task Force 2, and made the shot from a high-rise building.

It took the bullet almost 10 seconds to hit its target, it reports.

Chalk a lot of that up to pure luck, considering how wind shear or other factors COULD have put that shot off-course. Still and all --- adios, Achmed!

No word on how many shots it took to hit him.
If you're in a noisy area, you'd never hear a round pass by, he very easily could have emptied a clip or two before finally nailing his worthless ass.
Regardless, one less muscum on the planet, hats off to the young man. :thumbup:
