In the video you can see Ben decked out in camouflage, laying on his stomach targeting his prey with his rifle. His prey a target that was about 200 yards away from his location. A target he didn’t miss by much.

“You think about dream jobs, and I wanted to be like James Bond or a Top Gun fighter pilot being like the bad dudeā€¦ the sniper that can shoot someone from a mile away is pretty cool,” Roethlisberger said.

“Once you anchor as many parts of your body as you can into the ground, you just become natural with the gun,” he said. “It felt like it was a part of your body.”

Sounds like a fun way to start his off season, especially with the teachers he had. I’m sure Steelers fans would prefer him to stay away from guns and not risk pulling a Plaxico Burress on himself.
