Arron Perry. Rob Furlong. Craig Harrison. Legendary snipers. In researching the competition for who had the longest distance kill in military history, the majority of laymen would expect to see a Navy SEAL or a Marine heading the top of the list. A little research, however, shows the top three long-shot kills are Craig Harrison (United Kingdom), Rob Furlong (Canada), and Arron Perry (Canada). The late Chris Kyle, of American Sniper fame, is eighth on the list. There is a South African Special Forces sniper that is sixth on the list whose name is withheld as is a Norwegian Army sniper. Snipers operate under the motto of not boasting about their kills. In the defense of the top three snipers listed above, they have all been outed by the media or their own military. Harrison's name had been released after he made the record-setting kill and had to go into hiding. Furlong and Perry's had similar circumstances with the media after being investigated for conduct unbecoming. This book will take a look at the feats the men above performed on the battlefield as well as the psychological toll that the sniper profession had on their lives. 1. Language: English.

Wood, is also known as Lipowitz''s alloy or by the commercial names cerrobend, bendalloy or pewtalloy. It is a fusible alloy with a melting point of approximately 70 °C (158 °F). It is a eutectic alloy of 50% bismuth, 26.7% lead, 13.3% tin, and 10% cadmium by weight. Wood''s metal is useful as a low-melting solder, low-temperature casting metal, high temperature coupling fluid in heat baths, and as a fire-melted valve element in fire sprinkler systems in buildings. Medical gas cylinders in the United Kingdom have a Wood''s metal seal which melts in fire, allowing the gas to escape and reducing the risk of gas explosion. A common use is as a filler when bending thin-walled metal tubes. For this use the tubing is filled with molten Wood''s metal.
High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Peerage is a system of titles in the United Kingdom, which represents the upper ranks of British nobility and is part of the British honours system. The term is used both collectively to refer to the entire body of titles, and individually to refer to a specific title. All modern British honours, including peerage dignities, are created directly by the British monarch, taking effect when letters patent are affixed with the Great Seal of the Realm. The Sovereign is considered the fount of honour, and as "the fountain and source of all dignities cannot hold a dignity from himself", cannot hold a peerage. If an individual is neither the Sovereign nor a peer, he or she is a commoner. Members of a peer's family who are not themselves peers are also commoners, the British system thus differs fundamentally from continental European ones, where entire families, rather than individuals, were ennobled.

The first creation came in the Peerage of England in 1525 for Henry Courtenay, 2nd Earl of Devon. For more information on this creation, which was forfeited in 1538, see the Earl of Devon. The title is chiefly associated with the Cecil family, descended from the courtier Richard Cecil of the parish of Stamford Baron St Martin in Northamptonshire. His only son, Sir William Cecil, was a prominent statesman and served as Secretary of State, Lord High Treasurer and Lord Privy Seal. In 1571 he was created Baron Burghley, in the County of Northampton, in the Peerage of England. His son from his second marriage to Mildred Cooke, Sir Robert Cecil, was created Earl of Salisbury in 1605 and is the ancestor of the Marquesses of Salisbury.

A harder or more carefully designed item which serves this purpose is often called a sabot. Wadding for muzzleloaders is typically a small piece of cloth, or paper wrapping from the cartridge.Wadding is also a term used in the United Kingdom for the soft inner layer of patchwork quilts. In the USA, this is refered to as Batting. Quilt Wadding can be made from a variety of materials, cotton, polyester, wool, bamboo etc. The different materials will then influence the loft (bounce, thickness) of the quilt and the distance between the quilting threads.
