Quote from: Norm on October 02, 2017, 02:52:58 AMThat's my thought, 7.62x39 variant with either large beta mags or belt fed weapon. I'm surprised the barrel didn't get hot enough with all those sustained rounds to start cooking off. We should know more when they locate the shell casings.

QuotePolice initially sought a woman believed to be Paddock's roommate, Marilou Danley, as "person of interest." Detectives later made contact with her, and "do not believe she is involved with the shooting on the strip."
QuoteFederal law enforcement sources told Fox News that Paddock "was known to local authorities" in Vegas, and multiple weapons were found in his hotel room.
QuoteThe gunman, who fired down on the Route 91 Harvest Festival from a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, was killed by police.
Quote from: Hog on October 02, 2017, 07:00:13 AM200 dead 400+ injured.Deadliest shooting in US history.The clip I heard had at least a 10 second almost sustained burst.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-Y1jMgqABMM249 SAW-5.56mm NATOFF to 43 seconds for firinghttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=za0tAfzEXs4M60-7.62mm NATOFF to 22 secondshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X517Utblb00I dunno both rates of fire are close.Craziness. Best wishes to all involved including the Code Orange that I'm sure is going on at the local healthcare institutions.Edits for typospeaceHog
Quote from: Lord Grantham on October 02, 2017, 07:15:25 AMIf it was a chain fed automatic weapon that's very strange. If someone is going through the process of getting a Class III license and paying thousands of dollars to purchase the weapon they don't ted to be spree killers. In fact, I don't think it's ever happened until now. I am not insinuating a conspiracy. Just pointing it out.
Quote from: 21st Century Man on October 02, 2017, 07:14:53 AMWhere did you get the 200 dead figure? The reports I see are saying 50 dead, 406 injured.
Quote from: Hog on October 02, 2017, 07:26:42 AMSorry, I made a mistake, I had 200 in my head, rounds of 5.56 in a box, old injury counts etc. My apologies.You are correct 50 dead.peaceHog
Quote from: Hog on October 02, 2017, 07:31:54 AMBut reports mention 8 "rifles" were found.

Quote from: Yorkshire pud on October 02, 2017, 07:41:21 AMErm, will this be a terrorist incident? Police say he had quite a few firearms in the hotel room, fortunately they're not connecting that with the casualties. Nothing to see, he wasn't a Muslim.
Quote from: Juan on October 02, 2017, 07:46:28 AMNational Public Radio hours ago announced that it was not terrorism.
Quote from: Yorkshire pud on October 02, 2017, 07:48:08 AMPhew, that's a relief. The casualties will be less dead and injured then. Thank goodness. That will be comfort to the friends and families.
Quote from: Who on October 02, 2017, 07:54:08 AMShame on them. I'm sure the shooter was a perfectly stable, well-balanced gentleman and all the background checks or gun laws in the world wouldn't have stopped him. Perhaps he just didn't appreciate country music? It's perfectly understandable. Nothing to see here, move along.
Quote from: Dr. MD MD on October 02, 2017, 07:53:20 AMHe'll turn out to be a Trump-hating, Antifa lefty. Who else would shoot up a country music concert?
