in which he shot 3 guys. The LAST guy, Jim shot in the back, as he tried to FLEE. The last 2 guys fled, so Jim did NOT stop them,altho he did wound them, and they WERE captured at a nearby hospital. The first (head shot) guy, Jim surprised when he stood up from behind cover, (wearing an armored vest) and had his gun ON the dude before the guy knew what was up. Jim DID hit him in head, it WAS about about 50 ft. However, the rest of the tale is NOT what it is often represented as being(ie, fastdouble taps,or ALL head shots). Yes, the 3 guys DID fire at Jim, yes he DID shoot well, and yes, it probably WAS just a matter of 'seconds". However, given the well-documented loss of a sense of time (in combat) it could as easily have been 6 seconds as 4 seconds, and for sure, Jim NEVER tried such a thing again.
That speaks VOLUMES,ya know. Thereafter, he made sure to get MUCH closer,(in his stakeouts of oft-robbed liquor stores, Harlem,late 1960's)and to normally use a longarm of some sort.
