Gettin' The Goat!

Got this piece of BBC/YouTube video in an email this AM from John Paul at JP Enterprises, makers of the finest ARs in the business, along with this memo attached:

Note that these rifles have been in service since 2003 and have well over 100K rounds through them. Each aerial shooter has two rifles, one to shoot, one to cool. Expected round count was to be upwards of over a thousand rounds per rifle per day. They are equipped with the heat sink and Aimpoint Comp MLs. All rifles had to hold one MOA accuracy or better after 1000 rounds of testing and are still accurate today.

But, can we apply for this job or what?

Hazcat, you wanna try being the goat??

Awesome headshots, though, from a moving helicopter no less. Absolutely awesome.

Methinks that the Ecuadoran Government (this is the Galapagos Islands, right?) is missing out on a chance to make some SERIOUS dollares de touristas.

I mean, can you imagine the cashola they could rake in if they put together helicopter goat shoot packages for rich Gringos?

I think Australia could do the same thing with their cane toad problem. Horde of cane toads, and a Ruger 10/22 gatling set up, with winsome young lasses there to reload magazines and light your cigar????????

Oh my...........
