Spend some range time with a SEAL Team 6 frogman who helped kill bin Laden — Video

Love him or hate him, Matt Bissonnette (aka Mark Owen) is a certified badass.


As part of the legendary SEAL Team 6, Owen (we'll use his pen name) was a top-tier special operator who knew how to kick in doors, snatch HVTs and dispatch tangos with precision marksmanship.

In fact, he was part of the daring raid that snuck into Pakistan and landed on terror mastermind Osama bin Laden's lair to bring Public Enemy #1 to justice.

His story is chronicled in two awesome books, including "No Easy Day," which delivers a blow-by-blow of the mission to kill bin Laden, dubbed "Operation Neptune Spear," and "No Hero," which chronicles his extensive career as a senior NCO in the SEAL teams.

In the years since the May 2010 raid, Own has remained in the shadows, posting some cool pics to Instagram and doing some trigger pulling on the side for a couple companies in the shooting sports industry. He's still all secret squirrel about his true identity, so it's rare to see him out in the wild.

But this video shows the ST6 frogman's still got it, slinging lead with several ARs and dinking close-range steel with a dialed out Glock.

He's even throwing some hate in the dark, decked out with NODs and loaded up with tracers that just make you want to shout "'Merica!"

And the best part: Owen's sporting a rare pair of Vans DEFCON high tops patterned in AOR1 (these things are going for $200+ on eBay).

There's a lot of ballistic goodness going on here with a true American hero...
