Quoted text from my post "how to catch a sniper" 10/15/2002....

QUOTE "I would think that someone like this would be relatively easy to close in on.

This guy was trained somewhere. He's proffesional and to confident to have never done this before.

He must use special equipment that he purchased somewhere.

My guess is that he's using an AR15. My reasoning? They sell some pretty insane customized AR15 varmint guns that are scary in accuracy. Flash suppressors which are illegal now were readilly available. If he's ever cornered he's got a fully automatic asault weapon to outgun police with.

See :www.bushmaster.com

There are few AR15 customizers. Pay a visit to every person on the customizers lists." END QUOTE

Well it turns out this guy was using a Bushmaster XM-15 Rifle A-3. They traced this guy through the purchase of the weapon.

He was a military trained expert marksman.

You guys have to give me credit for calling this......  Big thumbs up

Not really, he was never trained in sniping. He did have M16 training though.

He wasn't a sniper.... he was an "expert marksman"

I think the term sniper has been thrown around loosley as he wasn't actually a sniper but stalked his prey in the same manner as a sniper would have.

Reports I see indicate that he was caught by a fingerprint and shooting his mouth off a bit about stuff that wasn't released. But then I got this off Fox News and they aren't really all that interested in facts from what I have seen.

But in all honesty Jetpilot, I see a few Generalisations which are correct from you but the other facts no where close  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The XM-15 is the civilian version of the M16. So it is obvious to make a connection between Army gun training, and the sniper.

Flyguy1... how was I supposed to know he was trained in the military when I posted my assumtions? So how can a connection be drawn?

My assumtion he was using an AR15 was the fact that itwas a .223 caliber can be customized to be very accurate.

Assault weapons should be banned. They are clearly a threat to national security. There is no need for anyone to have the weapon this shithead had.

Anyone think he was a Muslim?

Jcxp15.... sorry to have insulted you and the other million people and the news agencies.... thing is that I didn't listen to the news, or the other million people.

I drew my own conclusions.... and you know what? I was right.

JET

This gun isn't considered an assult weapon under ATF guidlines.

Why should I be banned from owning one because some crazy decided to kill people with it....

Wheres the sense in that.

When you take things out of context you change the meaning. The point of the statement "He must use special equipment that he purchased somewhere." was meant to indicate that he has a left a trail.

Someone always seems to suprise me with a lower level of stupidity than I have previously experienced.

There is no such thing as an "assault rifle". It is just a slang term.

The only thing that laws that suppose to ban them do is band ugly (as in physical appearance) weapons.

I knew this would happen. The piece of sh*t has his last name "Muhammad." That's all the Muslims need, a crazy ass wacko, as if the publicity isn't bad enough. He was Nation of Islam, too. Major differences.

I believe you take the bar for being the stupid one for thinking you are special because you called what a million others did. I also called that he bought the gun as opposed to finding it or stealing it.

An assault rifle is classified as one having a folding stock, a bayonet mount, a flash suppressor, and maybe a few other things I'm unaware of.

That's why the AR15 carbine with the folding stock is illegal. It comes under the assault weapon ban.

How many people have folding stocks killed?

Not one. Existing ones where also not required to be removed from rifles, that is one of the reasons you can double the price of a Post-ban rifle to get an approximation of a pre-ban price.

How many drive by bayonetings have there been???

I don't know, All I know is that my SKS had the bayonet removed because it was made in China and therefore it was considered an assault weapon. To this day I can get a newly imported Russian or Yugoslavian SKS and it will have the Bayonet still attached. Shoot the Yugo's don't even bother to remove the hardware from theirs since they are military surplus new-old stock.

How many crimes has the removal of the Bayonet on my SKS prevented? Not one. I still have the bayonet attach hardware on my 1903A3 and my Enfield SMLE MKIII. I have the feeling that removing that hardware isn't going to prevent any crimes either. BTW, both of those weapons have their roots pre-WWI

I don't think any crimes have been prevented with the flash hider anyway, Besides if I wanted the look of a flash suppressor on a rifle I could go ahead and get a "recoil suppressor" which is an almost identical piece of metal, except it helps reduce recoil but it functions simularly.

I don't know of any crimes that were prevented by the folding stock law, they just managed to make it much more difficult to carry a survival weapon in a small aircraft nose compartment or to back away.
