    It's a little far away to tell, but I'm pretty sure I saw an arm flying in that second shot.

    you can see a person in the last video before he gets hit, but ive shot a .50 cal, and though it could rip your leg off problably, i cant see it tossing a body in the air like that.

    I just watched that one more time, and that is most definitely a human limb flying away in the third one.


    If I'm wrong and this is BS, I apologize, but I sure think it looks real. :confused:

    I have seen .50 cal hits, and they didn't look like that. What ever the target was and munition used, one thing is for sure. It is dead!

    I'm thinking they're just shooting hunks of meat. I saw no people.

    I see anonymous meat, and I'm going to play the skeptic here- the last one is probably on a rig, and the others may have been as well.

    no way those are real, CNN told me in oct of 2001 that the Afghans were battle hardened super soldiers that our grunts could never beat! And... and... those mountains are rugged.. and stuff!

    Take it from me guys, those shots are real.

    We engaged one guy at 1.5 klicks and had trouble finding what was left of him.

    They do it with this:
    http://www.inetres.com/gp/military/infantry/rifle/M107.html

    I've seen it done at 3 miles.

    Handy for working up to a cave system, or defending a FOB.

    Not so handy for interrogators....Dead men tell no tales

    I hate my computer, I guess I don't have the latest stuff to download the video so I can't see it. midnitewarya I do love the link tho, that sure is a purty gun.

    I have that video and another where a guy is kneeling in the street with (not sure if correct term) a grenade launcher and getting smoked. they replay it back in slow mo too so you can see all the details.
