Before he could get his hands on the modern day equipment, the Army presented him with a 1903 A4 replica sniper – the same he used in the war and had not seen since 1944.

Despite a 66-year gap without using the gun, he had no ease picking off a target at 300 yards, with all three shots hitting the target.

It was then that the officers taught him how the Army’s custom made Remington 700 works and explained how a 1,000 yard shot can be achieved.

For those who don't want to watch the whole video, his first shooting is at about 2:45, the second at about 6:00.

Amazing. And to think, he couldn't have been more than 16-17 when he served. Nearly 70 years later and still making shots the vast majority couldn't.
