Blocked behind this wall, as we can still 20here gun fire coming from an unknown distance north of our position! Our team is broken up into two different position and Ojeda and I are just west of our team. We needed to take care of this problem and fast. I peeked my head up to get a bearing of where he might be only to take it down fast because I did not want to get it shot off. “I think we are going to have to do a hasty shot on this one,” I explained to Ojeda. He nodded in agreement. Ojeda took out the M1050 LRF (Laser Range Finder) and took position underneath a piece of concrete.
Ojeda, places the M1050 LRF up to his eyes and starts to scan the area looking for our shooter. It really was no problem for Ojeda to locate him through the 10X50 Magnification it had! Next thing I knew Ojeda calls out, “I found him!” Ojeda press the button to find the yards out. The range was 465 yards out. Ojeda scans the area to determine the wind value. Calls it out for me and I dialed everything on my scope. I roll around and pointed the scope in the general direction and then Ojeda walked me in. I saw movement and then verified the target and fired. A direct hit center mass. I could not have done this without the help of the M1050 LRF, thanks Steiner.
