The act of firing 3 rounds
of a semiautomatic/automatic gun usually to the target's head or heart in very fast succession. This shooting
technique is most effective when
the target is still. Similar to the "double tap", the triple tap is used
to inflict maximum destruction to the target before he/she has time to move or run. Typically used
more often when
one is in possession
of a lower caliber
weapon to ensure stopping power. For instance, a .50 desert eagle would
not require this
technique. (as a single bullet in the arm with a .50 would
likely amputate the limb).
Anderson, how did the mission go?
Agent: Great Director, I busted in the place and seen that
there was only one terrorist within sight... I wasn't really worried about ammo at that point
so I triple tapped that
right between the eyes and he dropped like rock!! His brains
all over the wall
boss, it was a hell of a sight!!
Boss: Great job Anderson, keep your performance up and you'll have a raise in no time!! Now go fetch me a coffee, BLACK!!
