Preparedness Notes for Monday – December 17, 2018

December 17th, 1905, was the birth day of Simo Häyhä, who was the world’s most successful sniper. Using an iron-sighted Mosin–Nagant in Finland’s Winter War, he had an astounding 505 confirmed sniper kills. He died April 1st, 2002.

  1. I never understood why the tremendous blast from the muzzle of a Mosin Nagant didn’t reveal the location of Mr. Haya. Maybe he took one shot and boogied.
    A side note is that I believe he finally took a shot to his jaw, but then he lived to (what ?)
    97 ?!

  2. Read a article about him,he actually preferred to wait till a group of Russians gathered(usually around a fire) then attacked with smg(larger body count-sniping?)
