Yes, and a heck of a lot more distance than only 1 1/2 miles from many rifle cartridges. We had a freak accident like this where I grew up in West Milford back in the 70s. Two idiots took 3 shots out of a bedroom window with a .303 British Enfield rifle at lights attached to our community lodge that was 1 1/2 miles or so away. The bullets dropped a lot more than these jerks expected and one pierced the bathroom wall of a home that was in line with the lights killing a woman who was washing the family dog in the bathtub. She died in her husband's arms. Both shooters got off because they each blamed the other for taking the 3rd shot. The husband had testified to hearing all three shots with the 3rd shot being the fatal one and the two suspects were the only witnesses to their actions. But both were sued into oblivion as were the parents of the one young adult in civil court.Is 1 1/2 miles a realistic distance for a bullet to travel? Even if it was fired at the perfect trajectory?
