    Re: Mass shooting in Las Vegas

    Here's a Youtube of a girl firing an AR-15 with a bump stock. Skip over to 2 minutes for the actual firing. Notice the rapidity I mentioned with the bump as opposed to what was on the video, which I agree indicates hand-cranked...

    Glad you're all right. Stay safe and get home safely, too.
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    After reading all the horrible things drinking will do to you....I gave up reading.

    As a former major in the US Army Reserves, I'm sure he has some idea of them.

    Those are difficult (months of background checks by the ATF) and expensive (>$20k) to get.
    But extremely easy to convert from select fire to full auto in your tool shed.

    Now that he's dead, we may never know the cowards true motive.

    I have a hard time believing he did all of this alone. Someone else knows.

    There is legal weed in Vegas now, just saying might be time for an Uber out to a dispensary to calm the nerves

    either way I'd be on a flight home as soon as you can get your gear
    Got some nice gummies to take the edge off. Conference is canceled for the day. They canceled the Wed night event too. Booked first direct flight back to ATL.

    Honestly I never felt threatened while in the hotel. The restaurant manager at the restaurant had everything under control. As soon as they knew what was going on, he had the security gates down and we were in the back of the restaurant. It's when they made us leave the restaurant and go outside due to a bomb threat I started to panic a little because it turned to chaos and nobody knew what was going on or where we were supposed to go. They still hadn't really said it was only 1 shooter at that point.

    Gottae be honest, I thought I knew weapons pretty well but had never even heard of hand cranked modern firearms. Completely new to me, so it didn't once enter my thought as a possibility. I thought the actual suspicions of gatling gun were a little nutty and far fetched but clearly not.

    Not sure I'd call it extremely easy - I've seen guys who did it and few were precise enough to sustain automatic fire for long. But yes, modifying the sear and lower aren't beyond the realm of possibility.

    A gatling gun (or minigun) has multiple barrels which rotate and fire in turn. I would be shocked if that was actually what was used. The hand cranked weapons suspected in this atrocity are technically single barreled semiautomatic rifles, but the crank replaces actual trigger pulls.

    After listening to the video clips I'm interested in what he had. Most firearm fanatics don't keep it a secret what they have. Most like to show off their weapons and even more, their knowledge of weapons. I think I could easily name the few friends I know that have owned full auto weapons.
