One click and closing... what does "click" mean?

On military shows or movies or whatever, I sometimes here they say something like, "Two hostiles two CLICKS and closing?"

What is a click?

Thanks in advance to all who can help!

Slang terms for kilometre include "klick" (sometimes spelled "click" or "klik") and "kay" (or "k"). These non-standard terms can also refer to kilometres per hour, which itself is abbreviated as km/h, km h-1, km·h-1 or, informally, kph.

Since you are a proud supporter of George W. why aren't you a proud Iraq vet who would know this information?

But, for the sake of your safe and comfy military movie enjoyment, click is slang for kilometer.

Kilometer, or it can be the amount of clicks it takes to adjust a rifle scope for elevation or wind.


click is a measurement of distance usually a kilometer
