Canadian sniper makes kill shot at distance of 3.5 KILOMETRES

Not necessarily. There was an earlier record, again by a Canadian IIRC

Bloody Captcha made it impossible to correct this in time. The shooter I referred to was British sniper Craig Harrison.

In November 2009, Harrison consecutively struck two Taliban machine gunners south of Musa Qala in Helmand Province in Afghanistan at a range of 2,475 m (2,707 yd) using a L115A3 Long Range Rifle. In a BBC interview, Harrison reported it took about nine shots for him and his spotter to range the target.
