86-Year-Old WWII Vet Makes a Shot That Will Blow You Away

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

Veteran Ted Gundy served as a marksman 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 the warm up. Watch what happened when Gundy was given the opportunity to shoot a 1,000-yard target.

There are some skills that just stay sharp, huh Ted?
