    I’ll see your Dicken Drill and raise you 180yd shot on an Active shooter…

    Like a boss. His coffee didn’t even get cold.

    LEO rolls up on a AS, gets his AR from back, dials the red dot brightness (guess) and drops the shooter as he reloads from 180 yards away. I call that ‘unsupported’, but looks like he was leaning against the SUV. It wasn’t like he was proned out or supporting the directly.

    AH, Twitter. Just what you’d expect:

    ETA:
    How can you tell this wasn’t in NYC? The LEO says “SHOT fired, suspect down”. No Stormtrooper mag dump here…

    I just did two lines of powdered wig powder, cranked up some Lee Greenwood, and recited the BoR. - Outlander Systems

    That's what great training does for LEO's. Amazing shot. I think this was in Tacoma BTW

    Looked like a red dot, maybe an Aimpoint T1? Almost undoubtably a 1X and not a magnified optic. He did seem to have some kind of designator in front of it on the top rail. i’m not familiar with those, so I can’t identify it.

    ‘BAD’ lever too…. I’d say that this was not a rookie. That’s a state of the art set up circa 2012.

    Its a riser and rail system developed by some SEALs. Company is called GBRS or something like that.

    No dude is going to get shot in the chest at 300 yards and look down and say "What is that, a 3 MOA group?"

    You just beat me to it. DJ SHIPLEY and COLE FACKLER. Was talking about this mount with Jon Dufresne a couple months back at his NV class I attended. I would like to check one out. Looks like it might be a descent solution for SBR's with limited rail-estate.

    I like how he calmly sets java down, gets out of his rig, grabs his carbine and smokes the turd with single shot. Cucumber cool.

    Thanks, I found it on the net with a pic included

    180 yards with no magnification is very impressive to me with my 65 year old eyes.

    It's an Aimpoint T2 on a GBRS Hydra mount.
    The officer was very calm. Fired one shot at 183 yards with his AR and knocked the shooter flat. Then he charged. Kudos to him. Ex military?
