Ak's dont shoot 5.56 they shoot 7.62 rounds which is pretty much a .308 which carries way more of a punch and longer range


AKs shoot 7.62x39, a 308 is 7.62x51. Not even close to "pretty much" the same. Not even close

Hell, according to that timeline, the Security guard called in the exact location of the shooter within 13 minutes of when it started. And confirmed he was still there. At that point, I guarantee you that they shut down every single exit from that floor, and had officers guarding every single possible exit. Throughout the entire floor, then again outside of the entire hotel.

There is no chance in hell he escapes at that point. It's over.


Yep. I'm guessing he only planned to shoot for 2-5 minutes, check his monitor to see if the coast was clear, and then try to take off and either blend in with the crowd or attempt to shoot his way out. Time flew by much quicker than he planned and the security gaurd outside of his door made him realize that reinforcements were on the way and there was no way he could get out.

I just can't picture how it was set up. Was it in the backseat and he was hoping to go through a window and hit it, or was it in the trunk and he was hoping to pierce the metal then hit the tannerite?

Neither scenario makes much sense though at 400+ yards


I agree but it is weird that he had it knowing the possibilities of escaping was slim.. I looked at the layout on google earth and directly on the corner of the wing he was shooting from there is a parking lot straight down across the street that would have been an easier possibility if the car was there. Now penetrating the tanks with jet fuel at that distance is probably not going to happen due to most aboveground storage tank shells being a minimum of .250" thick most of the time thicker!

I agree with that. It wasn't some incredible drop at the distance he was shooting.

He was landing them just fine without tracers considering the size of his target.

Then why have bring a dozen or more rifles depending on whose numbers you believe, two or three would have probably been sufficient?

I don't know. Look at the pistol, you can see where the mouth was around the barrel.

I think she meant that he shot himself somewhere else, and then ate the second bullet.

Remember the blood on the lower part of his chest in the picture? When all of the blood from his headshot obviously went up his face.

Obviously the shot thru the mouth wasn't an accident.

She made it sound as if he had 2 gunshot wounds. As if he accidentally shot himself in the leg or arm or chest and then he ate the bullet.


Sounded odd to me also. ...was just passing it along

Makes sense, that's probably what I would do too.

If that's the story, then I would definitely start wondering if he was a patsy. Shoot him in the chest, but then use his hands to put one through the mouth making it look like suicide.

If true that he was shot twice, interesting.

re: Mass shooting on Vegas Strip discussion
NSFW!

Look at his chest in the lower left corner.

Then remember in one of the pictures he had 3 or 4 guns in a group on the 2 chairs put together, and he died right next to them.

I think she is telling the truth.
