Vice have produced a short film on the rebel snipers operating in Aleppo, Syria’s largest city. I couldn’t help but shudder when they showed a 16 year old boy trying to snipe at a long distance with an SKS in the middle of such a heavily┬ápopulated city. As much as I love the SKS, I would not want to use it in a situation where my target was further away than 100 yards.

    UPDATE: I cannot embed the video. Click here to watch it.

    Many thanks to Jake for the tip.
