The team finds the shooting of USMC recruiter Gunnery Sergeant Freddie Alvarez, who lied to potential recruits to make them sign up, yet got many thanks too, was the work of a crack sharpshooter, according to Abby's ballistics from a far building where he removed exactly one brick for a perfect trajectory. Yet the only complaint with threat from such a good shooter he recruited, Sergeant Aaron Barnes, now an instructor who signed up again, has an alibi. After another recruiter is shot, staff sergeant Allen, and white feathers are found as a calling card, Gibbs poses as recruiter, his profile theory being a rejected would-be marine who visits his victims before killing them...

At the first sniper perch, Gibbs comments on the ability of the sniper to judge and remove precisely the one brick in the wall that will allow him to line up for a perfect kill shot. Sounds good, but removing just one brick will not provide enough clearance for both the muzzle of the rifle and a clear line of sight from the scope to the target. Both together on a typical 7.62mm sniper rifle are taller than the height of a common standard size red clay brick. At least two bricks from adjacent courses would need to be removed. See more
