Although he’s a long way off of beating Chris Kyle’s kill count, a Canadian sniper has set a new record for the longest kill shot in history.
The unnamed Joint Task Force 2 sniper is a member of Canada’s elite special forces deployed to Iraq. The record breaking shot was taken from a high-rise building. The bullet from the sniper’s McMillan Tac-50 rifle flew the two miles in 10 seconds taking out an ISIS fighter.
According to a report in the Toronto Globe and Mail, “The shot in question actually disrupted a Daesh (Islamic State) attack on Iraqi security forces.”
A military source was quoted as saying, “Instead of dropping a bomb that could potentially kill civilians in the area, it is a very precise application of force and because it was so far away, the bad guys didn’t have a clue what was happening.”
This news is certainly in line with Secretary of Defense Mad Dog Mattis’ plan to kill ISIS and ISIL fighters so they can’t continue the fight!

A Canadian sniper is a long way from reaching Chris Kyle’s kill count, but he beat his longest successful shot in the fight against ISIS.
As those of you who’ve read American Sniper may remember, Kyle took out an insurgent sniper in Iraq from an incredible 2,100 yards (1,921 meters) away. At the time it was the 5th longest recorded sniper kill.
