Kurdish sniper LAUGHS after bullet narrowly misses her head in shootout with ISIS

StaffRebel Columnist

Now this is just badass.

A Kurdish sniper in a firefight against ISIS flirted with death when a bullet just passed her head. The scene was caught on video and uploaded to Twitter by Hemze Hamza.



According to The Daily Mail, the women is from the Women's Protections Units and the shootout took place in Raqqa city.

But, like something out of a movie, the fearless warrior just laughs after her near-death. She even goes on to talk with her colleagues like nothing happened.

Hamza, a journalist, wrote on Twitter, “Kurdish women know no fear. Your average human being would be scared for life after being so close to death but she kept laughing.”

Incredible.

@Bill Elder…yeah you are probably right, back splashes usually come in lower than the muzzle. I got to try out a Dragonov. They are excellent out to 300 yards but NATO rifles (and a lot of sporter rifles as well ) are every bit as good or better farther out. I do like the scope reticle though, the Russians are big on KISS practicality. That stadia scale is great when you don’t have a spotter estimating range for you. The real limit of the system is the crap ammo in 7.62 × 54R.

I really have to wonder about that long shot in Mosul. Even match grade 50 bmg goes trans sonic at about 2200 yards and it is not noted for good repeatability after that. So even a walked out series of shots would still be a hail Mary. Aim point would have been 800+feet above the target and I will bet that the mirage in the Middle East would make any scope be like looking through the bottom of a Coke bottle. My guess is that he was using Cheytac platform with a Nightforce scope and not standard issue gear.

Too much mass for a ricochette and the angle of the impact path on the wall places the shot coming in from her extreme right. I think her flippant reaction may be the bravery of the uninitiated. Interesting seeing a 26" fully compensated barrel on an SVD frame – there must be wharehouses of these Dragunovs and variants all over the former east blocks still in factory grease – at least this one has been put to good use dusting ISIS foamers.

Braver and more ballsy than any left wing pussy will ever be.

Judging from the time between her muzzle blast and the bullet strike that may have been a ricochette of her own shot coming back at her after hitting a solid object between 100 an 200 yards out.

The Kurdish fighters are fearless, especially the Women. The Muslims are terrified of them, especialy the Women. They do not go to heaven nor do they get their 72 Virgins, if killed by a Woman. In most cases Muslims retreat once they realize that they are being attacked by Females

She is another good soldier in a stacked odds fight..
Now is this Muslims fighting Muslims or Christians fighting Muslims..
The article never said.

Brave Lady!! …kinda would be a bit sad though if a soldier, after a close call, lost their shit and became blubbering a fool. But I guess that is why some soldiers end up with PTSD.

Maybe she should move to a different location. Just sayin.
