Francis "Peggy" Pegahmagabow, an Ojibwa Indian from Ontario, was the highest-scoring Canadian sniper of WWI with 378 confirmed kills, the highest for the Allieds in World War One.

Sights were marked to 900 yards. This one shoots a mite further. 500 grain paper patch bullet. Hired to shoot dingos on the Australian outback.

Trip, Trez is right on the money. Unfortunately she died in combat. You MAY be thinking of her fellow servicewoman-Lyudmila Pavlichenko

What is this... No one responds to mine just because I made it up? No body said they had to be all "real." (Imagine me doing that weird air quotation thing.) Am I really the only Quigley fan?

"I said I never had much use for one. Never said I didn't know how to use it."

Here's one- do not know the sniper that sent him to history, but his final words were "They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance."

Who was he???

John Sedgwick (September 13, 1813 – May 9, 1864) was a teacher, a career military officer, and a Union Army general in the American Civil War. He was the highest ranking Union casualty in the Civil War, killed by a sniper at the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House.

Sedgwick fell at the beginning of the Battle of Spotsylvania Court House, on May 9, 1864. His corps was probing skirmish lines ahead of the left flank of Confederate defenses and he was directing artillery placements. Confederate sharpshooters were about 1,000 yards (900 m) away and their shots caused members of his staff and artillerymen to duck for cover. Sedgwick strode around in the open and was quoted as saying, "What? Men dodging this way for single bullets? What will you do when they open fire along the whole line? I am ashamed of you. They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance." Although ashamed, his men continued to flinch and he repeated, "I'm ashamed of you, dodging that way. They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance."[3] Just seconds later[4] he fell forward with a bullet hole below his left eye.[5]

Got that from Wikipedia.
