    Default SAS soldier kills 5 ISIs jihadis with a shotgun

    Reads like the breacher just kept going and took out 5 with his Benelli, several with suicide vests.

    An SAS officer armed with a shotgun has killed five jihadis during a dawn raid, it has been reported.

    Upon receiving reports of a planned multiple suicide bombing, the team planned a dawn raid for the next day.

    A 'breach team' were the first to enter, breaking through a doorway into a courtyard. However they were soon faced by a group of heavily armed men, who had reportedly just finished morning prayers and were loading weapons into a vehicle. One of the officers, armed with a Benelli M4 Super 90 semi-automatic shotgun, fired at them, killing three would-be bombers.

    Another two terrorists then appeared from a building, but before they could fire off a shot they had been neutralised them as well.'The terrorists were no more than a few feet away when the SAS team came face to face with them,' a source told the Daily Star about the raid late last year.

    'One of the breach team opened fire with a shotgun and shot dead three before they could get a shot off. Another two terrorists appeared from a building and he neutralised them as well.

    t was reported that two suicide vests, one weighing 30lbs, were found on the dead men. They were made mostly from ball bearings and plastic explosives.

    At least one officer on a raid is armed with a 12 gauge pump-action Benelli shotgun, which is usually used to blast through locks and remove hinges from doors.

    The story talked about semi and pump action shot guns
    At least one officer on a raid is armed with a 12 gauge pump-action Benelli shotgun
    Link had photo below. I see what looks like a bolt handle on the photo below suggesting it is semiauto.

    The SAS were the first HK equipped teams. While US teams are very circumspect about using special breaching rounds, I know that many European Teams simply breach with buckshot. I expect that was the case here thus no need for a pump to cycle those special breaching rounds. I will also bet he took head shots on all of them. Five head shots at close range with a shotgun is much quicker than the same with an SMG or a Rifle. We may do a drill at the class next month. Three close head shots...followed by two more at a slight farther distance.

    The Brits have never forgotten what the shotgun is for.

    I remember reading they used sawed off Auto 5's in Malaysia in the late 40s or early 50s while rooting out communism in the jungles.

    I suppose Auto 5's are old these days. But 00 buckshot still works just fine.

    For some reason this story makes me do an internal fist pump at the aplomb exercised. Excellent shooting, Mr. SAS op.
