Veteran sniper of World War 2 still has skills

Army sniper veteran Ted Gundy, 85 years old, hit a target at 300 yards three times out of three using a 1903 A4 replica sniper gun. (the same he used in the war).

Officers taught him how the Army’s custom made Remington 700 works and explained how a 1,000 yard shot can be achieved. It involves a second sniper, called a spotter, judging the wind. He shot three impressive head shots all within five inches of each other.

He seems ready for The Old Mans War
