Carlos Hathcock - The Original American Sniper - from "Deadly Shootouts"

  • Published on Jul 13, 2019
    A detailed accounting of some of the most significant events in the life and work of Marine Sniper Gunnery Sergeant Carlos Hathcock during the Vietnam War. For a sniper, time is irrelevant when you're invisible. Inches can take hours, and kill shots, days. Surrounded by the enemy, a level head is all you have to rely on. And if you're Carlos Hathcock, one of the best that's ever lived, extra bullets won't be needed because it only takes one shot.
    This is a showcase of our Historical Recreations work for the limited TV-Series "Deadly Shootouts.” Dramatic Recreations produced by LionHeart FilmWorks and directed by Kevin R. Hershberger. Costumes by Historical Wardrobe of Richmond, Virginia.

    Carlos was a phenom--no doubt ! I'm a little surprised that Adelbert Waldron (US Army) didn't get a similar video--he had the record till 2011 and that included a 900 yard shot from a moving PBR! Let's have a video on him.....

    Love how they don't tell you the part how a shot through the scope cant actually happen cuz the bullet breaks up or gets deflected slightly meaning that it's never fatal.

    In this war, the American army could engage hundreds of Hathcocks, it could not win against the viets who were better soldiers. All this mess for nothing.

      When Demorats tried running the war. You get a mess. You can't run a war from 10,000 miles away!!.. You turn it over to the military to get you in and out of there. General's have training. Washington DC has none!!..

    9:00 Those Vietnam era canteens were carried in a padded nylon or canvas pouch and a stainless steel mess kit cup. So you had to shoot through pouch, stainless, plastic, water, and then plastic, stainless, and pouch again if you want to hit someone through it.
    You can't just shoot a plastic canteen and say 'Look, it went through the plastic, so Cobra must have missed.'

    If you look up Chris Kyle on Conan O'Brien you will see/ hear him pay homage to Carlos Hathcock on national late night t.v.. A tid bit from Gunnt Hathcock, he ate almost of the cheese and crackers from the C rations to constipate himself for that 3 day crawl.

    Hmmm. Thank you. Unlike that lying sack of crap chris kyle. But karma is ironic. Mr hero got shot by his buddy douchbagging around.

  • Shinku Kirito Ichika

    Carlos is among the greatest snipers in history. Yes Simo Hayha was the greatest, a titan in all of sniping. There's also Lyudmila Palivchenko, Vasily Zaitsev, Francis Pegahmagabow and Chris Kyle among others. Carlos is just in a league of his own.

    My grandfather killed a coyote at 530 yards at a full run with one shot. People said it was luck.
    Two weeks later same spot, same distance he killed another one with one shot.
    I've shot a coyote in the head at 380 yrds standing free handed..
    But coyotes dont shoot back..
    And you dont have to crawl a thousand yards for days to kill them.
    And you dont have to exfilltrate..
    I love hunting and shooting but what snipers do is very special and amazing.

    The Carlos shot the general in the chest not the head since he stated in his book he couldn’t risk a head shot miss.

    Carlos was a hell of a shot but just because he did the most important kill in history doesn't mean he was the best at his job ever let me tell you something I know a lot of people that can shoot 600-700 yards and drive the nail of the head not that they're good or better than him but there are better people than him

    This guy was the real deal, unlike that lying deluded arrogant worthless hack Chris Kyle, known for the movie "American Sniper", based on his memoirs which were largely faked and his inflated number of claimed killings; instead of retiring from the army and hanging his boots with dignity, he, like the attention-whore he was, went on to publicize made up stories that put in doubt his sanity: he claimed that during Hurricane Katrina he was sent by the Navy on a 'secret mission' to shoot and kill as many people as he could from the roof of the Superdome which he did, he said that during a reunion of Navy SEALS in a bar commemorating the death of a comrade he encountered Jesse Ventura (a retired Navy SEAL himself) who, out of the blue, said "you deserve to lose a few" after which he punched Ventura knocking him out cold, Ventura sued him for difamation (and won) after all those present that night denied Kyle's story, the Navy refused to verify his claim that he was the most prolific sniper in United States history and he claimed he had 2 Silver Stars and 5 Bronze Stars with valor when in reality he had only 1 Silver Star and 4 Bronze Stars.
    After his death, his money-grubbing attention-seeking whore of a widow (who always loved to bathe in the fame of his husband which was undeserved for him, and even more so for her obviously) has continued to peddle Kyle's bullshit and to commercialize his story and merchandise.

    Carlos will always be the definition of what a sniper is. Its not necessarily the count. But the combined skill, discipline, the ability to leave your body and become what surrounds you . being a good shot is only a small part.

    This man is a giga proffessional sniper and has a very great patience! Because maybe not many people can stay grovelled(or crawled)for days without eating or drinking and exposed to mosquitoes, gnats or maybe centipedes or poisonous snakes etc. in tropic area! Damm proffessional that he could kill all the Nam's snipers!
