One of the world's best snipers has opened a gun academy in Edmonton.
Retired Cpl. Rob Furlong was a member of the five-man sniper cell with Third Batallion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry, based out CFB Edmonton when he set a world record for a long distance kill shot.
While on duty in Afghanistan in 2002, he took out a Taliban ambush from 2,430 m away, protecting the American soldiers nearby.
Now, he wants to help train soldiers and police officers to be the best of the best, and help civilians with their aim, too.
