We're thinking one-in-a-trillion:
  • Investigators say an off-duty Colorado sheriff's deputy fired a bullet straight down the barrel of a suspect's gun, a shot they called "one in a billion."

    The detail emerged in a letter from prosecutors Wednesday announcing that Arapahoe County Deputy Jose Marquez was justified in shooting the attempted-robbery suspect, who survived. Marquez also was wounded in the January shooting and is still recovering.

    The Aurora Sentinel newspaper in suburban Denver reports that Marquez was visiting his girlfriend's apartment when two suspects approached him in the parking lot with their guns drawn.

    The off-duty deputy told investigators that one suspect told him to "give it up."

    Marquez says the suspects fired first and he shot back. One was wounded in the leg and arrested, and the other got away.
Here's the picture:

Don't bother buying any lottery tickets - that is a lifetime of luck right there.

Too bad it didn't end up like the German sniper scene in Saving Private Ryan . Great outcome either way though .

They did something similar on the tv show MythBusters where they shot a bullet into the cylinder of a revolver, and I think that one was "confirmed". Pretty amazing shot though.

A friend got shot on the job and while on the ground the bad guy walk over him and put his gun to his head and pull the trigger. The gun misfired. Other officer arriving shot the bad guy five times. The wounded officer and the bad guy lived. My friend never plays the lotto and tells me that was a life time of luck, similar to the officers bullet going into the barrel of his bad guy.

Great. Now he raised the bar so high that the idiots at ipra will right rule 7. Officers will ONLY fire at a suspect with the sole purpose of shooting down their barrel so as to stop their bullets murderous ways. Officers WILL NOT shoot unless they are 100% sure they can make the shot so as not to unnecessarily endanger the alleged shooter. This action will ONLY be done after the officer complies with rule 6a listed above.

In the book "Marine Sniper: 93 Confirmed Kills" by Charles Henderson about the life of Carlos Hathcock, Henderson writes of Hathcock firing a shot at (I think) 600 yards, that passed right through the scope of a NVA sniper who had been sent to kill him. As Hathcock himself says (, if he hadn't been the fastest on the trigger, he'd have been the dead sniper.

So, too, Deputy Marquez.

God bless and speedy recovery.

hope the "1 in a billion" are hillarys chances! look over here sandra blands mother going to be key speaker at demorat convention:

Odds that as usual another police bashing event! bet the Republican convention will mention law and order as as Trump says always "we love our police!" hillary campaigns with thugs mothers that their child tried to kill a police officer but yet hillary supports them! But then criminal hillary skated on espionage and treason charges already! Bet FBI director Comey has trouble with his decision!

Tagline for democratic convention should be "we are anti-police" and then why not let the people that don't want to obey police attend to their own araes? would police stress and government lots of money in extra overtime!
