Opening comment:

A bullet will kill you three ways. The first way: extremities. Miss a major artery and you got 10 to 20 minutes - before you bleed out. The second way: anywhere in the tens, center chest. The bullet will tumble, lots of bone to splinter, the heart or the arteries get hit, blood pressure drops to zero. The final way is the kill shot. Middle of the skull, any angle. Like a marionette with the strings cut, you're dead before your brain can process what happened. Guns change everything, and a bullet is forever.

223 Remington. 55 grain? You guys have no idea what I'm talking about, do you? The kid at Walmart who sold you this crap should've told you. This bullet isn't powerful enough to take down anything bigger than a squirrel.
===
The human head is roughly 22 inches in circumference. The gap from his limo to the rope line is 3 yards. President's gait makes that 2 1/2 steps. At 1,000 yards, the shooter has almost two full seconds to make the shot.

An adaptation of Stephen Hunter's 1993 thriller "Point of Impact," first of the Bob Lee Swagger series, originally aired in Dec 2016 at Bravo. S3 now airing at US Network. S1 updated Swagger's past marine heroics from Vietnam to Iraq and with a more racial diverse cast. A few mushy domestic scenes but plenty of engaging talks on guns and intense actions with special sniper rifles.

Best one liners (more in "Quotes":)
I'm the sniper. You're just a marksman.

Really boring and little action. For a skilled shooter, he sure makes a lot of stupid decisions. Do not waste your time.
