what a Decade and a half can do

Recommended Posts

I was watching Future weapons and found that they have a bullet that can be basically a point and shoot at 2500 yards on a cold bore shot. Thats very impressive I would bow down to that. But I remember reading about gravity, elevation, temperature, and all those other variables that effect a ballistic path. Its not like you can line up the cross hairs and go. you had to mentally do all the math from your GPS, offset your X hairs, and commit. I believe my longest one is 1,917 yards but about 5 minutes after that shot I don't remember anything but waking up that night in a Medic tent in unbearable pain. Sadly the Guy that saved me that day died on my birthday this year.

But just thinking all the advancements makes me happy though. No one wants killing but you cant stop it. Its just I cant believe there has been that much advancements in a couple years.

Maybe I will go in to story time one day.

Oh and If you call the Department of Defense apparently I don't exist neither did the few of us nor our actions ever existed... Even I Cant find my self in the FIA (Freedom of Information Act)

The past is that past and the future looks brighter and that all that counts right?
