An SAS officer armed with a shotgun has killed five jihadis during a dawn raid, it has been reported. The intense fire fight was over in just seven seconds, and quickly led to the militant group's surrender of the stronghold. The covert operation took place on an Islamic State outpost in Baghdad, Iraq. Several other terrorists emerged from the building but immediately surrendered and began panicking as two of the bodies didnt have heads they thought they were about to be executed.'

Im thinking 00.
Depending upon the range to target, all of them.
they really need to stop taking these pricks prisoner and just start killing them all.
Now that is a man.
At close range trap loads (7 1/2 shot) will take a head off.
I remember about 20 years ago there was a gang robbing banks in Toronto and the standing orders for staff was to hand the money over and be as cooperative as possible (probably while saying sorry....it is Canada).
After a bit they seemed to have become bored and so decided to kill one of the polite tellers for no particular reason. The newspaper article noted that the fatal shot had been to the head, and that the robbers had wielded a pistol and a shot gun, but it had not yet been determined which weapon had been used to fire the fatal shot.
Well, now Beto’s gonna want my “assault” shotguns.
I doubt the Benelli pictured in the article is what was used.
Waiting for the media to scream it wasn’t fair and assert such weapon violates the rules of warfare.
“...as two of the bodies didnt have heads...”
Considering two were wearing suicide vests, the head shots were probably wise shots.
Good job guys.
I understand that shootouts and fights can lost a long time sometimes.
But any street fight i’ve seen or been in was over in 30 seconds max with a million punches thrown and some bad damage done.
Only in the movies do fist fights last 10 minutes.
I wonder how often gun fights are a lot longer than a few minutes?
My assault shotgun is ready for him, for real. My kids call it the Jurassic Park shotgun. Its not for duck hunting. The ultimate home defense weapon. Just point and click.
There are some Brits that are real men.
I’d also like to know what kind of shotgun SAS uses.
If Obama had a son, he’d probably look like one of those Jihadis.
Yes. Could have been a nasty situation. Quick reaction to NOT take a body shot.
Article says it was a Benelli M4 Super 90 semi-automatic shotgun,
Shotgun often loaded with special breaching rounds
Andy McNab still alive and well.
U.S. Marines use the M1014 which is the same as the Benelli
