So, I continue to watch this show, and God knows why. Each week I am assaulted with yet ANOTHER
This week I was watching the episode "Never Kissed a Girl"
Hostage situation, limited sight line, Blah, blah, blah.
The sniper is the kid of the team, the same guy who a few weeks ago was going to take "The Shot" with the bolt handle UP
So, this week the kid is in a window, one or two stories up, across the street. He can't see the situation because of frosted windows, so he switches to thermal. Since he can't see the subject, his "spotter" comes up with this fantastic plan.
The Spotter is going to shot the glass, a split second, before the sniper takes the shot once the Green Light is given. He in lies the rub...
The spotter is armed with an MP-5. The shot is down angle, across a City street. Conservatively, 15 feet per lane of traffic, plus 15 feet per lane of parking. That's 60 feet, with ( 2 ) 10-foot sidewalks.
Angles aside, this guy is going to use an MP-5, across at least one wind pattern, to break the glass of a frosted glass window a split second prior to a sniper taking a shot.
Okay. Maybe. The guy is part of an elite unit. It's possible.
Except for one little problem. The sniper is on the right side of the window, braced across the threshold, silhouetted
like a Mo-Fo, and the spotter, with his basic MP-5 is on HIS LEFT
So, how is the sniper going to respond when the hot brass from the MP-5 is raining down on him and his weapon prior to taking the most important shot of the day???
