A British Army Sniper team recently killed two Taliban terrorists with one bullet. It's nice to see that the Brits are trying to save money while doing the Lord's work.

But we can't let this British challenge to our sniper superiority stand! Maybe they could send the WW II vet sniper you sent me the video on to go pop a couple of them!

Even if he can't get a two-fer we can claim the oldest guy with a confirmed kill and reclaim some measure of national pride!

was one hellova' shot, no matter his age. Actually, at 84 years of age, he'd probably be alot more dangerous in a combat situation. Imagine all the pent up rage, hate and anger in a guy who can't fuck anymore, has trouble taking a shit, or even getting a full night's sleep without getting up several times to pee. That crotchety, old bastard of a guy is happily going to kill alot of people before they finally get him.

but getting to the hiding spot would be an issue! His eye may be as keen, but I bet he isn't as limber or agile as he was back in the day!

I figured you would be the first with an age-discriminatory remark, you creaky-kneed summabeech!

Well, let me tell you in case your slack-jawed self hasn't figured it out yet.

The secret is to realize that there is great merit in sauntering instead of running!

I kind of figured that after eating a gut-full of Poop's fine cooking, you'd get your sherpas to carry you up to your favorite tree, before putting on your harness, so they could hoist you with a block and tackle up to your tree stand..

Poop is no longer among us. He dropped out two seasons ago.

We do however have very, very adequate replacement in the form of Tiny/Dave and Morissey. Life is good and so is the eatin'!

I do not need carried to my stand...THANK YOU! Though the block and tackle thing might not be a bad idea!

Speaking of the stand, I have to put checking to see if it and it's tree survived the winter!
