    What gun was used in the ferguson shooting

    http://www.ammoland.com/2015/03/wild...lice-shooting/


    Pure speculation that the gun used in the police shooting in Ferguson, MO was a .22 rimfire semi-automatic rifle, likely the ubiquitous Marlin Model 60.

    You mean it wasn't an 80% AR, shooting M855?

    Now that is just funny.

    Why were they standing outside the station? Were they on a smoke break? Seems like they should've been inside the police station or out on patrol.

    Your're right. If they would have been inside then there wouldn't have been any need for them to get shot.

    My bet - a Hi-Point. Soft shooting enough to allow for the quick follow up shot. Dang lucky or good shooting for a pistol. Too bad this guy didn't put his skills to better use like hunting & donating the meat & buckskins to the needy.

    Should we even care what type of gun? After all it was not the gun who decided to shoot at cops. This is not a funny incident, but playing the which gun game is outright hilarious. It is a game the antis often play.

    IMO, the type of gun that was used makes no difference.

    That said, the following screenshot is from a local news source:

    Pay special attention to the second paragraph.

    Hah! Nice catch. I'm so used to the media's flawed reporting that I completely missed that when I read that same article last night.

    What gun was used in the ferguson shooting

    could be ^^^ he must of been packing two and fired with both hands near simultaneously???

    Wolf is right - who cares, now the news us reporting that his lawyer(s) admit he fired the shots, however they were in self defense to fend of a robbery in progress & the police were collateral damage.

    Guess anything is possible???

    I'd take the report with a grain of salt.

    At the time of the shooting, there was a protest taking place in front of the police station. The officers were in the lawful performance of their duties monitoring the protest. As has been widely reported, there has been considerable violence and property damage in past Ferguson protests. It would ave been irresponsible to not have officers there monitoring the situation.

    Quite a coincidence he just happened to hit two officers a considerable distance away. Also a coincidence he has a criminal record and past crimes involving firearms.

    There is NEVER a need for police officers in the lawful performance of their duties to be shot.

    40mm - thats a fairly good size round. We used to shoot those out of grenade launchers.

    The alleged suspect is saying he fired his gun in a self defense situation. Unfortunately he didn't make sure what was behind his target and also made bad shots.

    It makes me wonder what would the outcome have been if he accidentally shot two protestors instead of two cops?

    Even in self defense you are responsible for where each bullet lands.

    It was just a random chance these guys got hit and also randomly they happened to be cops. (According to the alleged suspect)
