Double Tap

Synopsis: What begins as an innocuous entry into a gun competition eventually steers Rick towards a path of fatal rivalry. With extensive training, Rick emerges as one of the finest shooters in town. Three years down the line, four members of a G4 unit have been murdered; the suspects clear out any possible evidence. A top CID officer, Miu, narrows the suspect list down to just Rick, whom he had met in the shooting arena on the final day of the gun competition three years before...

Good morning, I'm Joe.

Glad to see so many law enforcement

Co-workers at my IPSC course.

IPSC, a club of "practical shooting".

Was law enforcement training exercise.

But is now a sport.

How many bullets can your gun hold?

Wrong, it's 21 plus 1.

Magazines can hold one more when loaded.

A standard IPSC target.

Zone A, 5 points; Zones B and C, 4.

Zone D, 2 points.

Are you ready? Stand by!


Don't you know you backfired?

Hit the most zones A's

in the shortest time.

Accurate shooting

and no technical errors.

Better your chances of winning.

Many of you shot off-mark.

The bullets far from each other.

Hitting the same target

in quick succession.

Is called Double Tap.

Only experts can do that.

You can usually hear and tell.

How's the alteration?

All right.

It's excellent.

Don't point it at yourself.

You're afraid it will backfire?

Of course.

What if it's pointed at you?

Same thing.

Why did you come?

It's far, the food is bad.

Miss you; I want you to meet someone.

An old classmate

wants to be your student.

You're a gunsmith and dislike teaching.

But if not you I'd have married him.

Hello... I'm Vincent Ng, nice to meet you.

I'm so happy...

He's so nice.

We're like old friends already.

You won at your first match in 1991.

No one could beat you after that.

You injured your hand

by accident in 1995.

And have stayed away from competitions.

But you're still very famous.

Not only as a top shooter

but also as a gunsmith.

Are you done?

- But...

- You checked up on me?

No, I'm a forensics detective

for 6 years.

Research is my forte, and a hobby.

I looked up all the details.

Because I admire you, Mr. Pang.

I really want to learn, may I?

Give me one reason why I should.

For me!

I never do anything for anyone.

Got it.

Coming, Fatso?

He loves you, doesn't he?

I shouldn't have brought you.

Unload your gun.

Your speed...

We won't discuss that.

You squinted and shook your head.

Don't be afraid of the sparks and sound.

You must control the recoil and trigger.

Back up. Headset on.

You must learn

to communicate with your gun.

Each has its own character.

Communication will bring out its best.

What do you mean?

What I mean...

Don't fall next time you do that.


And do this 100 times, 1000 times.

Until when you aim

you point at the target.

The only reason to shoot is to win.

To show how good you are.

How do I know my limit?

When you meet a real expert.

Why must you be a bookie?

You're smart, you can do anything.

I like it.

You can't stop me forever.

I can bet you.

The drop on the left

will hit the table first.

All I need are 2 drops of water.

So? Who won?

Who cares? But for me.

The left by about 0.025 seconds.

Wait, from my angle...

Don't argue with me.

They drop from my hand, I can tell.

Now you're blaming your hand.

Of course.

Good, thanks.

That was a conversation on 1972,

between an FBI agent

and the head of the largest US syndicate.

What can you tell from that?

He despises me, leads me on.

Using me to kill time.

And won't admit defeat.

He's showing him he's stronger.

A criminal's state of mind.

I enter their world,

see things their way.

Gambling is his personality.

Arrests can't stop him.

He gambles with anything.

Even water.

Upon release, he won't change.

Be a hunter.

Actions reflect personalities.

Imagine you're a killer, act like him.

Not easy to do.

But to know his next step.

You must feel his heart.

Know an artist by studying his art.

Know a criminal by visiting him in jail.


And serial killers

like to return to the scene.
