Back in 1993, a police sharpshooter ended a two-hour armed standoff, not by taking out the gunman but by taking out his gun.
According to reports, the man was sitting in the road for hours pointing a gun at himself and others.
Swat sniper and Vietnam veteran Mike Plumb took an amazing shot that blew the gun out of the suicidal man's hand.
Plumb was on a grassy knoll hidden by pine trees when he saw an opportunity and took it.
Here's an interview with Plumb as he looks back on the legendary shot.
