Carlos Hathcock

Sniper in vietnam war. I heard someone talking about him on the radio this morning, so I thought I'd look him up. 93 confirmed sniper kills. One story is he saw a 12 yr old kid riding a bike carrying ammo and guns. He didnt want to shoot the kid, so he shot the frame of the bike, breaking it and sending the kid over the handle bars. The kid then picked up one of the guns and started firing at him, hathcook returned fire and killed him. I think what happened is Hathcook thought the kid was riding a fix gear bike, I would have done the same thing.... E. More gnar stories here
