This is the varmint shooting (sniping) video being circulated as Taliban sniping. These are rockchucks or some such little critter... the first one clearly has a tail.

The last shot is clearly a Taliban fighter, you can see his white turban---that one was a head shot. Now one of the first ones looks more like a mountain goat (third shot). In either fact, it is obvious that the 50 BMG can cause some good carnage with over 10,000 ft-lbs. of muzzle energy, even at long range. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

Re: 50 BMG Long Range Taliban Sniping Vid on the Net........

Rock chuck hunting is my life and passion for about 5 months of the year and I kill anywhere between 100 and 200 per season at all different ranges and with all different rifles and bullets and I can assure you that not one human was harmed in the making of this video! Somehow the rumor got started (probably by an inside joke) that these were Taliban rebels when in fact they are rockchucks of the Yellow belly variety. The one that is wearing the turbin on his head is actually the typical white marking often called a "face mask" on the adult Marmota flavaventris.

You can also tell by the physics involved that the chunks flying through the air have the mass of a few ounces instead of several pounds like it would be with human body parts.

Chk out this site I was looking at, http://www.rmvh.com/Scenes.htm

I think one of the scenes is exactly the same in the video where they hunt rock chucks. Very VERy entertaining none the less.

More than one of those scenes is in the dreaded "Taliban Sniper" video... I saw no less than three scenes common between the two.

It's a varmint video.... nothing more and nothing less.

Next we'll be reviewing the 12' brown bear that ate the hiker before it was killed and confiscated...

Hope you boys are familiar with Beatrix Potter....or this won't seem funny at all! ....


I have it on good authority that this is from the same Int/Intel source as the 'taliban' clip:
