    A British sniper set a world sharpshooting record by taking out two Taliban soldiers in Afghanistan from more than a mile and a half away -- a distance so great, experts say the terrorists wouldn't have even heard the shots.

    Craig Harrison killed the two insurgents from an astounding distance of 8,120 feet -- or 1.54 miles -- in Helmand Province last November firing an Accuracy International L11583 long-range rifle.

    gun control is an understatement, but it wouldn't bother me a bit if the guy admitted there was some luck involved too. :cool:

    The "best Sniper" in the world from a country with almost no guns, just great. Records are meant to be broken. ;D
