    Aren't casinos covered in cameras?

    As I understand the dynamics, it's basically just a simple tool that uses Newton's 3rd law. Press the trigger, and opposing forces keep the trigger pressing you until you're empty. You can probably pull off the same effects with all sorts of MacGyver work.
    More to the point, you can do it with your finger and no attachments/modifications. It's harder, and even less accurate, but totally doable.

    I've actually been holding back on the woman who claimed everyone was going to die 45 minutes beforehand. I suspect she was probably a hooker that did the same thing as in my anecdote. Came back to the hotel room when he wasn't there, saw all the guns, maybe he had casually mentioned something like "I hate concerts," and she put it all together.

    Yeah, I've been wondering about that too. I saw an article about it, but not much follow up. Pretty interesting. I figured it was one of the cleaning people.

    I'd sell you one but it'd require you to do some secondary work on the parts and I understand you don't believe in that. Heretic.

    The shooter tried to buy tracer rounds before the shooting.

    I don't need a bump stock. See Sub's post. Not everybody needs a handicap..

    MY trigger finger is faster than any of yours. Come and test it! Seriously, as BS ever had a range throwdown?

    I'd bake a cake for that. It would make way more interesting video than has been posted in the last eon.

    What **** luck. If he'd bought those, they'd have found him a whole lot faster.

    On the other hand, intelligence sources vs. undersheriff numbers are in, and it's 90 vs 50 lbs of Tannerite respectively...

    Hocking them all over facebook? Marketplace flagged a few swords I was trying to sell within hours. Fucking swords!
