UK Sniper Takes out Islamic State Suicide Bomber with Incredible Head Shot from over Half a Mile Away – Saves Hundreds


If you have ever seen the movie Shooter with Mark Wahlberg, then you get a little bit of a picture of what it takes to make a really long distance shot, especially a head shot in a moving target. In an amazing shot by a UK SAS sniper, the gunman made an incredible 1000 meter (3,280 feet) head shot to an Islamic State suicide driver and killed another passenger before they could reach their target.

The UK Express reports:

The terrorists were shot dead as they drove towards their target in Libya where they planned to detonate a car bomb.

The bullet passed through his skull and struck his passenger in the neck, killing him too.

SAS agents said the incredible long-range shot is one of the best in the elite regiment’s history.

The sniper had just 20 seconds to hit his target to save the lives of hundreds of civilians.

One SAS source told the Daily Star Sunday: “It was an amazing shot. It wasn’t so much about distance but the fact that it was a moving target.

“If the sniper had missed a lot of people would have lost their lives.”

Now, compare that with this reporter who claims to have experienced some form of PTSD from simply firing an AR-15! The reporter was later schooled by a little 7-year-old girl in the joys of firearms.

I’m pretty sure those this sniper saved are extremely thankful for his heroic effort, and I know I am thankful there are many men in the service of our own country with such skills that are used in the protection of innocent individuals.
