All units, look for vehicle

IN995, in silver.

Out to all.

Is that the car on the radio?

No way. Can't be

They're moving in

We have to help them

No, we're here on...

intelligence work

But we have a situation. I'll go check

Cover for me

Come out, Snake

I'll get at least several millions




Drop the knife...

Drop the gun...

Shane, I'm going in

Drop the gun or I'll kill him

Calm down. I'll co-operate

Now drop your weapon or

he will die in drain

Easy. Shut up or you'll die faster

Drop your gun


Take a deep breath

If you go for his heart

he still has 8 seconds to react

Hit his reflex nerve

Every cop carries a gun

But not every cop has the guts...

to take a head shot

OJ can.

He has the eyes of a sniper

A sniper's rifle determines...

an operation's success

If anything affects...

its accuracy

A sniper's aim alone is useless

You must protect your gun

What do you think, Shane?

He seems quite confident

You need that for the Special Force


Make sure he won't get

too confident though

Look further out, keep your balance

Look towards 11 o'clock from here

How far away is that red building?

A bus is 10m long

The way I see it,

the beeline aside should be 400m

It's about 120m from here

Sir, the hypotenuse is 410m

Keep your fingers sensitive.

Use this

Watch your breathing when you fire

They're not in sync, and

hold the grip casually, not too hard

Know what women say about men?

Hold them too hard and they'll flee

Let them go and they'll come back

You must use your heart

when you hold a gun

Without gadgets,

you use your judgment

Range, wind direction,

wind speed, temperature, humidity

All in your mind

Watch my breathing

Your body shakes...

with each heartbeat

Learn to overcome it

Take a deep breath, exhale slowly

Fire when your body is most steady

Hartman won 4 years in a roll

You're a top shooter too?

Hartman had a flu that year

Who's Lincoln?

He's the only one on the team

Who could hit 500m in full speed wind

Where is he now?

He left 4 years ago

He was our...

best shooter

But nobody likes him

He was neck to neck with Hartman

What do you think of them?

We should promote the capable

Lincoln is top shooter 4 years in a roll

Hartman has better...

commanding ability


you're promoted to Sr. Inspector

Kindergartens are like robbers

I thought I was off the hook...

when the kids got to primary school

Now here's another one

Say something, ok?

You like it spicy?

The food inside was tasteless

Bathe with pomelo leaves...

before you sleep

Here's $20,000

Let me know if you need more


You picked him up?

Dropped him off near his old house

How is he?

Better than the last time I saw him

I think he's recovered

Keep an eye on him

I will

He only took $20 from your money

I'll give you the rest tomorrow

We can finally look at

our wedding pics together

I went to jail right after the wedding

I'm sorry to have kept you waiting

He's welshed on his debt.

I'll hire someone to beat him up

Save the dough

Just pour gas over him

and he'll pay up

Pfft... You dumb or what...

Allowance for this month

What the hell?

Toll fees?

Is this how you greet your dad?

Spend smartly

Smart my butt, you butt hole

You think I...

really need your pennies?

Get smart yourself

Smart ass...

There you go again.

I should've just transferred you the cash

You think I wanna meet you here?

Don't get all high and mighty on me

So what I'm a gambler

You were raised by these

mahjong tables too

Now you're a cop,

and you're shunning...

your old man?
