    Wow. That diesn't look like a projectile hit, but who knows, whatever it was, good thing that bulletproof glass was there.

    That is a high velocity projectile hit on the bullet proof glass. Given the background, I would guess it is a 7.62x45 round from a Dragunov sniper rifle.

    I would like my country back. I used to believe that one man could never destroy this country. Not so sure anymore!

    That will make you jump out of your skin a few times. I hope he had an extra pair of pants handy.

    Man, that Dragunov must shoot a powerful round. I was thinking it may be an explosive tip or something.

    AK-47 sniper rifle variant if I'm not mistaken. Cheap and fairly accurate.

    Thats the part that struck me (again, if it was real)

    They were laughing about something that would make me shit my drawers.

    It struck me, because it shows that things that would impact your average person greatly, become 'normal,' after enough exposure. (which is true whether or not the video is real)

    You see the same thing in police work. Something happens that makes you want to crap your pants and the next moment your laughing about it. It's a defensive mechanism to keep you from flipping out.

    Pretty close. The AK-47 uses the 7.62x39 round, which is pretty anemic as a sniper round.

    The Snayperskaya vintovka Dragunova shoots the heavier 7.62x54R, not the x45. Sort of the equivalent Russian cartridge to our .308 or 7.62x51 in NATO speak.

    It was designed by Evegeny Dragunov, not Kalashnikov, but they are very similar weapons. It is also - or was - licensed for production in Iraq.

    In all seriousness, I have been told if one was setting a sniper rifle that route would be cheaper than most.?. Either way it would be bad A$$.

    It would be, but you would never get the accuracy you would find out of an M1A1 or a bolt gun.

    The neat thing about the SVD is it turns out pretty decent accuracy with even cheap Russian ammunition.

    Damn. It's a good thing that bulletproof glass was installed. Saved a life or two in that moment...
