Good, if any sniper is good enough to shoot a gun out of a criminal or terrorists hand, then the shot should be to the head. "Kill them all, and let God sort them out"

I've read "Marine Sniper" a gazillion times, but I have yet to read "American Sniper". I should have done that before seeing the movie.

IMO, Hathcock's shot straight through the tube of his nemesis' scope, has got to be the most amazing shot ever. Luckily the other guy's scope only had 2 pieces of glass in it.

i'm not sure why you would find that hard to believe. these days it wouldn't even be anything special.

it is also true that not all targets are green lighted for kill. the north viet namese taught us a few painful lessons. one of them being that a unit can often easily be rendered combat ineffective by only wounding two or three in their group. doing so requires their comrades to shift their focus from the mission to the care and transport of their wounded.

OK, here ya go. Same video, different narrator

youtube.c om/watch?v=AHvWaviIXsk

I like the first narrator's accent better. It was also pretty funny that the first narrator refers to the SWAT team members as "light infantry" and "army blokes". He did get it wrong though, it wasn't a .44 mag that was shot out of the gunman's hand, it looks like either a .38 special or a .357 mag.

Good, you are NOT for real, are you? Lets see the cop shoot the gun out of his hand again.

You're right, Good. When I lived in Ottawa a flamingo wandered all the way from Cuba to Ottawa. In the winter time. It was spotted and mistakenly identified as an egret, as it had turned snow white from lack of carotene being so far from home. It was then that I learned this about their coloration.

It was unfortunately found very weak a few days later on some ice in the Ottawa river, trying to eat crawfish. In spite of consulting with experts at the conservation in Cuba (from which it was tagged), it did not survive. It's stomach was badly damaged from eating lots of pebbles and sand.

I saw American Sniper recently. Not all snipers shoot to kill.

FF: in 1993 Columbus Ohio police sniper, Michael Plumb, defused a dangerous situation with an armed man by shooting the gun out of his hand.

Fun Fact: Flamingos hatch gray or white. They turn pink/red/orange later in life because of the food they eat.

Not sure what a plastic flamingo eats. Plastic shrimp?

Not surprisingly, that was a result of a college prank, where over 1,000 pink flamingos were displayed on the hill leading to the dean's office in 1979. It only took 30 years (in 2009) for the Madison City Council to decide to give the plastic pink flamingo that designation.

Despite being a Wisconsinite, I wonder what the council members were thinking. Perhaps a little "what the hell, why not" and a taste of the local brew helped them make that decision.

The pink plastic flamingo is the official bird of Madison, Wisconsin.

It's true.
