    That wasn`t a lucky shot LaChica, from that distance it was routine. Close distance so bullet drop and wind would hardly be a factor.

    Awesome shot. But I wonder what would happen if it went wrong.

    And why can`t anyone just kill themselves freely? The world would (probably) be better off if people who wanted to kill themselves did.

    everyone has free will and people kill them self all the time. win someone tries to make a show of it or fails suicide in a public place thats win they get arrested and drugged up by doctors who according to the will of the masses say they are crazy for wanting to kill them self. that kind of injustice will only stop win people stop accepting rules and ways of thinking just because they are old or because thats how they leaned it. that will never happen tho. if most of the people believe this or that is right or if some people believe it and the rest go along with it thats how it is... kind of like mob mentality on a grand scale.

    i`ve seen this twice on TV and like 3 times on the internet.. it`s from a while ago

    AtomicMuffin is right though, shots like those are easy as pie for a skilled, and trained, sniper

    but sometimes things go wrong... I remember watching some documentary on the military channel (i think) where a sniper, after an hour or two of waiting, finally got authorization, and tried to drop(wound) an armed criminal through the glass door of a shopping mall, because they had hostages, and the bullet hit the glass and changed directions... causing him and his accomplices to start shooting the hostages

    Toodlepuff: Because he was going for the gun. It`s common sense. If they politely came up to him and asked him to surrender he would`ve grabbed the gun and started shooting. I thought that was obvious. But I guess it`s just another excuse to stereotype Americans. Idiot.

    Anyway, I hate people who act all professional about sniping just cause they know about bullet drop and wind. It was a great shot, he shot a pistol out of a guys hand and it didn`t ricochet into his head. Are you a police sniper? No, you probably heard a show about sniping once and all the sudden you`re an expert. People...

    uh not to take the shot away from that sniper it was still a good shot. but they never said how far away it was, granted it had to be far away enough for the guy not to notice the sniper, but the guy was goin crazy so he might not have noticed much at all.

    also, to all those talking about wind and bullet fall, you do realise that bullet fall takes hundreds of metres to happen right...

    YOu know what, for all those people whining about not letting him kill himself....he could have! He didn`t want to! You know why? Cause that dumbass came out into the middle of the street (where he knew he would get attention) and wasted our tax money and the policemen`s valuable time. Then he`s ranting bullpoo about his girlfriend and he wanted her to see him do it. Come the f*u*c*k on....he`s just a god damn attention whore who just got dumped cause he`s a pathetic excuse of existence!

    when they said sniper, I thought they were gonna tranq him, but in retrospect he`d probably fire his gun at himself or someone if he got hit, nothing could knock him out fast enough without risk of death or damage..
    I didn`t see much wrestling either..
