One of the cooks that I work with was a Marine sniper; he said they used to shoot pennies at 2000 yards.

I used to be able to shoot targets with a .50cal machine gun at 2000 yards, but we were shooting at vehicles, not individual people.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

It is good, and requires a very accurate rifle. Most rifles can't do that no matter how good the shooter.

Are you allowed to own a gun in your country?

That's why I love the US; the right to own a gun is protected by our constitution!
