Any/all of these would be a more appropriate course of action, instead of firing what could have been warning shots at those guys. What the hell, forget the whole one shot-one kill... "Cowboy Up"!

But if you have seen it many times Iím sure you know better than me. You can say that itís a 2plus MOA gun and show all the ballistics charts you want. But it taking 5 rounds to hit target, and the fact it is record means, it exceeds the standards of common sense and mathematical logic. Thank you I am not asking you to believe it, I am just telling you the facts of what happened.
First of all my congradulations for being a part of the record. Having been there, done that in 1966-67. I know what the 30-06 can do at 1000 yds. so i have no doubt as to what you are stating here. It is too bad we didn't have the Barret back then. Would have liked to give it a go! Thanks for serving your country. There are people around, myself included, that appreciate what you guys are giving up. Pay no attention to someone who is insensitive and less receptive to you because they are mostly for the part, armchair quarterbacks or wanna-be's. Carry on and good luck in your future endeavors. .....SEMPER FI!
