A Jury in Erath County has found former Marine Eddie Ray Routh guilty of the Murder of Chris Kyle and Chad Littlefield.  While the state is not seeking the death penalty, a guilty conviction for Routh does mean an automatic life sentence.

I hope the silver lining, if one may be found in this tragic event, is the attention it brings to the very serious issue of PTSD and its effects on our troops.

Statistics regarding the incredibly high suicide rate amongst combat veterans is an issue that demands our attention, and we at Funker Tactical have made it a priority to support veteran charities and do as much as we can to raise not only awareness, but also funds to get our troops the support and service that they so desperately need.

Don’t keep silent. If you are, or know of anyone suffering the debilitating effects of PTSD, reach out.  Let them know you are there to support them.  Help is available, but we must do more for these men and women who have given so much, and left even more behind in the theatres of combat that they were involved.

Please visit the below links in order to hep us raise money and awareness to support our armed forces.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Kyle and Littlefield Families.

Train well, train often, and support our vets!

Three people surround a paper target under the sights of a Brazilian Special Police Sniper.  Check out the woman’s expression after two shots are fired just inches from her head!

If you had to stand beside a target like this journalist did, who would you choose as the shooter?

From the uploader:

A few days ago I took out the 338 Lapua and attempted the 2500 yard shot. So I placed the target at 2530 yards or 1.43 miles away, at that distance the bullet flight time is almost 4.5 seconds! Made a short video that I think you guys will enjoy.

I went out early in the morning to beat the mirage, luckly there was very little wind around 3-4 mph coming from the left, I dialed 2.6 mils Left. I had to dialed the maximum elevation my scope (Nightforce NXS 5.5-22×56 MIL/MIL) had at 27.4 mils then held over 2.5 mils on the reticle to get me to 29.9 mils.
