That same sniper was also previously credited with killing a machine-gunner with the Taliban from 1,465 yards — his first shot on his first official tour of duty, The Blaze reported.

So many good things done with few people knowing about them.

I’ve seen some of the videos showing what happens to a bad guy hit by a sniper. Not pretty. that’s a big piece of metal at a very high speed. 6 in a line could believe would be a big mess.

Please don’t take this wrong, but that’s the problem with the British military. They are extremely good at what they do, there’s just not enough of them.

At first I thought this was another April fools joke. Single bullet? What? Did the bullet hit one Allah Akbar then change direction? But no, he exploded that biotch! Happy New year! Or as Dick Clark would say “Happy Dew year!”

Why would I take offense at excellence when I’m surrounded by so much ineptness from a clueless presidency? Its good and refreshing to see that type of marksmanship even if its in another country. The British have been known for their snipers for years. I’m just glad he’s on “our” side...: )

Actually, the guy he shot was wearing a suicide vest and the bullet hit the triggering mechanism. That's what took out the other jihadis. Still, one bullet, six bad guys meeting satan. Yee ha!
