I am Robert Furlong, one of the real-life inspirations for the game Sniper Elite 3, AMA.
AMA! Take your best shot!
Hello everyone my name is Rob Furlong and I’m a former record-holding sniper rifleman. Back when I was a Corporal for Canadian sharpshooting six-man Recon Sniper Cell with 3 P.P.C.L.I. based out of CFB Edmonton I took out a Taliban fighter from 2,430 metres away while covering U.S. allies in the mountains of Afghanistan. The Taliban fighter was carrying a machine gun up a mountain trail in an attempt to get above the U.S. forces for an ambush.
I now run a Marksmanship Academy in Edmonton, Canada where shooters of all levels and backgrounds can come to take their training to new heights with world class training from world class instructors who have worked, trained and served in Military and Law Enforcement roles.

I’m doing an AMA this week in conjunction with a new sniper game that was released yesterday called Sniper Elite 3. The game scored an 8.2/10 on IGN. You can find out more about the game here:
Alright, ask me anything!
