INCREDIBLE SHOT: BRIT DISPATCHES TWO TALIBAN WITH ONE ROUND

Feel good story of the day. As the old saying goes, “two flies with one swat”. Kudos to the brave men fighting on the front lines. KGS

[…] On September 12th, a known Taliban commander appeared on the back of a motorcycle with a passenger riding pillion. There was a British patrol in the village of Gorup-e Shesh Kalay and under the rules of engagement, the walkie-talkie the Taliban pair were carrying was designated a hostile act. As they drove off, Osmond fired warning shots with his pistol and then picked up his L96, the same weapon – serial number 0166 – he had used in Iraq and on the butt of which he had written, ‘I love u 0166’.

Taking deliberate aim, he fired a single shot. The bike tumbled and both men fell onto the road and lay there motionless. When the British patrol returned, they checked the men and confirmed they were both dead, with large holes through their heads.

The 7.62 mm bullet Osmond had fired had passed through the heads of both men. He had achieved the rare feat of ‘one shot, two kills’ known in the sniping business as ‘a Quigley’. The term comes from the 1990 film Quigley Down Under in which the hero, played by Tom Selleck, uses an old Sharps rifle to devastating effect.

  1. Well done, lads!

    Now, any rational society would bring you home, give you a rest and some time with your loved ones and then put you to work here.

    There is lots to do and so little time to do it in. The barbarians are through the gates.

  2. We need tens of thousands of “Quigleys” if we are to ever rest from the Islamic threat.

    Well done, lad. If I ever bump into you somewhere, you’ll get a pint on me. Make that several.

    We need more troops like him to fight the scourge that encompasses the globe more and more.

    So where are the leaders on this? Waiting for the oil to dry up?
