You've GOT to be kidding me. He posted his story here for people to LEARN from, not to question his every move and story. There is a time and a place for everything, and this is certainly not the place to be questioning the legitimacy of a story such as this. If someone told you their grandma died, you would comfort them and talk, not ask them to show a death certificate.

So back off.

what did we learn?

i had my doubts when instead of running off when one of them went down they mounted an assault to get their fallen member. in my experience that just doesn't happen.

After a shooting:

(1)Shut up.
(2)Get a lawyer.
(3)Tell the truth.

As many people have observed over the centuries, truth does not contradict truth. 'Nuff said.

My response has very little to do with the incident as reported by the OP.
If you've ever been knee-deep in a serious police investigation, or sat on a grand jury, or sat thru a trial, you know just how nebulous "the truth" is.

There really is no such thing as "absolute truth", it's all a matter of perspective. This is the primary reason why much of our legal language is littered with "reasonable man", "reasonable fear", "reasonable doubt".

If the Op span a web, shame on him, but I suspect he will be back with enough information to clear the air.

Although, I wonder why he did not post this in GNG or Carry Issues, which see WAY MORE traffic than Tactics and Training.

We'll ask whatever is appropriate. There are some obvious holes in the story. IF its real, fine its real, and we'll absorb the experience. If not, some questions will go unanswered. Its not for you to say who can ask questions.

A link to a local news story would be fine, either a newspaper or tv station's online link. The most helpful thng would be to know what neighborhood its in so none of us move there by mistake.

I think this would be a fun game...

Somebody posts a story, try to make it as real as possible, then see who can write the most realistic one based on what others can point out as inconsistent/wrong...

I'll start thinking of mine.

Why don't you share ith us what you "learned".

Apparently is was not how to think and evaluate what you are reading.

So share with us the gems of wisdom you gleaned from this fairytale.

it's to dark for the guy to see him, but.....he can clearly see where he shoots the guy and even see's him clutching his throat.





This dude is simply amazing, I have been in shootings in low light conditions and damned if I could tell where I hit them as soon as I shot.

and it doesn't stop there,



yet he can hear the sound of bullets tearing thru his door.



after all the shots fired in an enclosed space he can still hear heavy breathing, and even hear tires and gravel outside as they drive off.



Simply amazing, frankly after shots fired in an enclosed space I was never able to hear much at all for a while.

There is only one explanation, he is a highly trained ninja!!

My sister's house, built in the mid 1950's (in Colorado), has the bathroom down the hall, on the front of the house, bathroom window overlooking the street. One story house. (One of the reasons I would not like to live in her house). Also a bedroom facing the street, as well as two bedrooms across the hall, with windows facing the backyard. From her shower, you can look out the window, into the street (though she had non-frosted glass until last year).

The bedroom across the hall from the bathroom would afford a view of the kitchen, living room, etc, through the crack in the door, and enough windows that light from the moon would make things visible...... UNLESS they were boarded up, as the OP's were......



Still waiting for the news link.

hahaha..too many questions to answer one by one.
I will post all my gathered information soon.
Also. The picture is of a Romanian AK not Hungarian. I sold my AK prior to incident. Some questions could be answered by my prior posts.
Dragoon 44, didn't know you model houses too. Maybe you should remodel the old one to fit your vision of how every house is. lol
Like I said, Just sharing my story.

Just curious, but are you talking about a bathroom at the end of a hallway?

Why don't you share with us how after a shootout in an enclosed space, and the alarm going off, you could hear "silence" and then heavy breathing, sneakers on tile, and even tires and gravel outside on the street.

Now yer just ****ing with the guy!

When I see movies on TV, after the shootouts you can always see/hear EVERYTHING, even plaster falling, pipes running, a fan whirring away etc.

What's the matter with you, DO YOU NOT OWN A FUNCTIONAL TELEVISION SET????

No, mine got shot up in the al queda attack, 16 BG's, I had to beat 4 of them down with the towel rack before getting to my M4 with the M203 attached that I keep in the freezer under the Popsicles.

it was pitch dark but they gave themselves away shouting "Allah akbar" and I used echo location to nail them.

I guess all that training with Navy dolphins finally paid off.

And if the story is a fabrication, those lessons learned could be dangerous.
