Looking up at the stairs above me, I noticed that I only have about 4 more flights to go. I was not going to think about the 15 flights I just climbed! Holding on to the rail I had finally made it. Man that was kind of easy I said to my buddy who was breathing hard. We both just laughed at each other. Next thing I hear is the Commander through my ear piece asking me if I had set up yet. I grabbed the throat mic and said, “I am almost there. Give me 5 minutes.” I hear the confirmation, “Roger that!”
We pushed through the door that entered the roof and headed towards the east corner of the building. Still hearing all the commotion going on down on the street corner, we hurried to set up. I took off my Overwatch backpack which was big enough to carrier my rifle and set it down in front of me. I unzipped the top and pulled out the rifle. I grabbed the backpack and used it as a rest on top of the brick wall. I position the rifle stock down on top of the backpack and zeroed in on my target. Through the scope I could see the target clear as day. Not worried about my stock on my rifle because the backpack was well padded, that it held the rifle steady. Just then I could hear the Commander over the radio that if I had a clear shot to take it. Looking through the scope, you could see everything elevating as the target kept raising a pistol. Just then it appeared that the officers around the scene were in immediate danger and the next thing I know is I could feel the recoil of the rifle.
I hear over the radio, “move in, move in!” and then the same voice saying, “Send in the medics.” That was my que to pack up and head down for debriefing. I loaded the rifle back into the overwatch backpack, through it over the shoulder and headed back down the stairs.
What a great idea Hazard4 had! This overwatch backpack has multi-features to it. It is a NORMAL backpack, until you fold out the top and bottom packets and then it becomes a rifle backpack. What a way to carrier your rifle and equipment. Hazard4 has taking into account the comfort of the Tactical person as well as the needs for their equipment!
