Sometimes the simple solution is the best – a head shot.

Posted by Rob Longenecker on April 14th, 2009

While many pontificating pundits were pronouncing their points of view on how to handle the pirates, the entire evolution was handled with a head shot – three to be exact.

I can’t tell you how many times while watching some TV cop drama where the bad guy is holding a gun to some pretty woman’s head, I yell at the TV, “shoot ’em in the head, shoot ’em in the head, you idiot!”  Yeah, real life is different from TV, I know. What you can do at the range, might be 4 times as hard when the adrenaline is pumping, but a head shot always seems a tempting way to save the day and save the life of the hostage.

Clearly, that was the solution off the coast of Somalia when the Seal snipers did what was called for, and did it as they had trained to do.

Sometimes a head shot is the simple solution.
