This retired sniper is about to make a shot that you wouldn’t believe without seeing it.

Veteran Ted Gundy served as a sniper in the U.S. Army during the Second World War. He saw action during some of the war’s most brutal offensive campaigns, including the Battle of the Bulge.

At age 86, Gundy received the Black Hat, one of the highest honors from the United States Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU). As part of the honor, Gundy was given a replica of the army-issue Springfield 1903 A4 he used during the war.

After receiving the replica rifle, Gundy used it to hit a 300-yard target dead on. But that was just a warm up. Watch what happened when Gundy was given the opportunity to shoot a 1,000-yard target with an AMU custom Remington 700.\

Ted Gundy smacked his it with three shots all within a 5 inch group in the facial area of the target. Gundy was dead on. See the86 year old WWII sniper footage here.
