    GOOD: Nice shot from a police sniper

    I'm not sure how recent this is but it's worth watching.

    I personally think a head shot would have been cheaper for the tax payers.

    Nice Shot!

    I think it is at least 10 years old, but it is a great shot. I also agree that the head shot would have been cheaper for the taxpayers.

    I haven't seen that one in particular, there are several videos of cop snipers shooting the guns out of BG's hands.

    This idiot BG probably brags to everyone about how the cop 'missed' him.

    I have seen that before. "Very Impressive" isn't even an adequate title for this sniper. I have a feeling if it weren't for the wind this sniper could have tapped the mag release on that handgun

    I've seen it multiple times, and it gets better every one of them.

    "Mag release", "Plastic Glock", what are you people talking about? Don't tell me you did not see it was a double action revolver. Watch the vid again, wait till you see the officer hanging the remains on the wall.

    BTW, awesome shot!

    It was actually a miss by about 34" low!

    I guess I'm in the minority, but that seems like a poor decision to allow that shot. What if it ricochets or fragments and a piece hits him in the Femoral artery or under the chin or in his wrist or something? I can't help but think a distraction device and maybe a beanbag round or such would be a better choice. It was a good, well aimed shot for sure. I just wouldn't have taken it.
