Only a single bullet was found and there is not time for 2 shots in terms of the time between JFK definitely being shot and the driver himself being hurt by the bullet.

There is no proof of a second shooter, there is no direct evidence that the bullet couldn't have ricocheted in the way that the single/magic bullet theory proposes.

Pro can say that I am denying the obvious but why is the improbable impossible if nothing at all rules it out?

I will tell you what Sherlock Holmes (also Spock but Sherlock Holmes existed first as a book, the quote is verbatim) tells us:

When you have eliminated all which is impossible, then whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth.
Tell me, is Pro daring to call himself a better detective than Sherlock Holmes? The audacity!
