Who Says Double Taps Are Old School?

From the National Journal's Marc Ambinder:
After bursts of fire over 40 minutes, 22 people were killed or captured. One of the dead was Osama bin Laden, done in by a double tap -- boom, boom -- to the left side of his face.
A different update:
U.S. officials have said a small U.S. strike team, dropped by helicopter to bin Laden's hide-out near the Pakistani capital of Islamabad under cover of night, shot the al Qaeda leader dead with bullets to the chest and head. He did not return fire.
Two in the belly
One in the head
I'm alive
And you're dead!

I get confused between a double tap, controlled pairs, and a hammer. In any event, he be D-E-D dead, and that's a good thing.

Foxnews said hit just over the left eye, blowing off the back of his skull.. couldn't happen to a nicer guy. Somthing better than a stock milspec trigger?

Now the big question will be for all the gun trivia nuts: was it a 1911 .45, an M9 9mm or some sort of HK .45 or whatever?

Because whatever it was I guarantee you once the news gets out every gun degenerate in America (including me) will go out and buy an example...

I heard a rumor that before his carcass was dropped in the water, we embalmed him with bacon fat and put a pig's head and feet in the bag with him before his body went over the side.

Rastus said...

DamDoc, we can only hope.

That and all Lake City ammo is varnished with a pig urine and cracklin mix.

Funny thing. All those twinkies they sent to Iraq, etc....that filling is made in Louisiana and is pure hog lard and sugar. An entire population exposed to the hated porkers.

I heard on Fox News earlier that he was hiding in a bedroom before the majic bullits got him. Coward.

I also heard critical info came from waterboarding Gitmo inmates...if true isn't that ironic!

Wait, I think 5.56mm was a poodle-shooter and couldn't stop a rampaging mayfly...

Unless we already have one. :)

22 killed or captured in 40 mins?
Well. Freaking. Done.

I'm betting it was an AR in either standard 5.56, or since it was the high end special forces boys, something in a 6.8.

John said...

Considering they were high speed spec ops guys, I am leaning toward a sub-machine gun, or m4 style rifle. Wouldn't expect them to assault with pistols.

Frank W. James said...

DamDoc: I heard the very same rumor...

All The Best,

I'm not a 5.56 fan, by any stretch....but if it did take down this POS...then it has gained new respect with me.

I'm still not a fan though.

I enjoy all the pork sausage up the butt humor, but I'm actually glad we gave the guy a "decent" burial at sea. Just looking out after our guys. We don't need some jerkoff in Astan getting hold of one of our guys and mutilating him in retaliation. While we are eating our breakfast today or enjoying a hot tub tonite, remember we and our allies have POWs being held by them. OBL is toast and gone. That makes me happy.

Rick said...

nj_larry: correction, OBL is not toast, but instead he is chum.

Rob Drummond said...

comes back up take the bungee off and tell him we just wanted to see You know I had a thought about how he could have been treated if he had lived.

We could have put him in prison directly across from the Fredom Tower and had him watch it being built. Then when it's finished take him to the top and chuck him off. Better yet attach him to a bungee chuck him off and when he it twice.

The message I sent got sent incompletely. What I want to to say was I had a thought about what we could have done with OBL if he lived.

Just to keep the crap flowing, I read earlier today that the weapons carried was the new Colt modular AR that was on exhibit at the shot show this year. .308 or 5.56 convertible.

Saw pics and video of the rifle and I WILL get me one!

It is pretty obvious that DEVGRU also has the HK MP7A1. I've seen multiple solicitations from DEVGRU for parts and spare magazines, and have also seen multiple occasions where the US Navy has purchased 4.6x30mm ammunition.

So, I don't actually believe this will have effect.

It can't work as a matter of fact, that is what I consider.
