    Morrinsville Shooting

    Been watching the coverage of this story and the media are hamming it up again, all the gleeful talk of a MSSA firearm being used. Is it just me or does all the damage to the police cars appear to be the result of shotgun blasts. If its not he must of been one heck of a shot to group that well at night on a windscreen with up to 10 rounds.

    It would be interesting to see how he got it. If it is an AK.

    Good point though. it looked like good grouping to me.. it was also left side of the police car... so if directed it appears that he wasn't aiming at the driver

    His grouping seems a lot tighter than theirs.

    don't be a dick.. it was purely an observation

    he might have been and his sights could have been out or ???... but it sort of appears that he might have known something about what he was doing as evidenced by the grouping

    or he could have simply been aiming at at an empty?? passengers seat to stop someone chasing him.. who knows

    its a bit more interesting than the normal incapable moron stuff is all...

    Whatever. Reports state quite clearly that perp fired several shots at police car. This seems to be supported by news footage.
    You then suggest that he knew where he was aiming and /or his sights may have been off. Grouping or otherwise. He shot repeatedly at a police vehicle.

    You resorting to name calling suggests you may be hurting...dick

    "whatever" the generational response to not being able to understand... lol

    unlike yourself, I know the difference between a car and a person...

    and in so far as hurtin is concerned... u apparently aren't able to understand how that the interwebby can't actually do that... u must spend too much time listening to John Campbell..

    still hitting that dick standard fella

    Well said Sir

    I thought the Police car looked like it had been hit with buckshot. When the media tell me "AK47" I expect to see anything from an SKS to a black semiauto duck gun.

    Pretty nasty incident, and posters being nasty to one another. Cops now seen running round with MSSAs (what do they wan't high capacity mags, pistol grips and bayonet lugs for?). Whatever! I'm out of here. Good night, Kids.

    This may get me crucified but here goes. The speed which frontline police replied with small arms fire proves they are armed at all times, now if suitable training was mandatory as well we might not have this current 3 ring circus. Police firearms training appears to be woefully inadequate.
