    British sniper kills two with one bullet

    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, Rifleman Mark 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.

    Two guys riding on a motorcycle with a walkie-talkie is hostile?
    So if you shoot your pistol in the air first its ok to shoot them?
    I know it's tough but damn.

    Dudes riding two up is against the rules for riding. See what happens when you break the rules.

    Interesting rules of engagement, but a great shot.

    Different world ... we're talking about extremely rural people's that own no electronics or motor vehicles. Yet, you got two military aged males on a motorcycle with walkie-talkies moving out, and they aren't even shaken by firing a pistol.
