Ted Gundy US Army Black Hat

Posted Image

Ted Gundy a WW2 sniper takes an impossible shot at target 1,000 yards away. Ted was a sniper in the Battle of Bulge and Bastone. Plus he gets presented a Black Hat from the US Army Marksmanship Unit. He is coached by SFC's Robbie Johnson and Jason St John using modern equipment.

Rifle used by Ted Gundy in WW2? The 1903A4 sniper rifle.

1st up is a shot with a 1903A4 replica at 300 yards.
2nd up is a shot with a custom Remington 700 at 1,000 yards.

You will be surprised how well this old veteran does. 5 inch group at 1,000 yards in first 3 shots.

Wow. Great shooting.

With as old as he is, I wonder how many forms and waivers were involved.
