Quote: It sounded like a Glock !!!

I was watching Fox news, and they were interviewing some people outside a sports bar in Sacramento. Last night before midnight there was a fight and a shooting that left two people dead.

They were interviewing a chick when some guy pokes his head on camera, and says, "Pop, pop, pop, pop, it sounded like a Glock".

Even my wife said, "what does a Glock sound like?"

no video, http://www.foxnews.com/us/2013/01/01...t-in-shooting/

Stupid Sheeple.

I always thought it was a "crack, crack, crack" sound?

If it had a "military style flash hider" or "that shoulder thing that goes up" it's even deadlier!

Last night, when my whole neighborhood was blasting fireworks into the atmosphere, one of my nearest neighbors said it sounded like Howitzer's going off, I asked if he had ever heard a Howitzer, his reply: "well, no, but I'm sure it's close..."

Sucks that the media would print that.

"Pop, pop, pop, pop, it sounded like a Glock".

It's almost amazing how people who know nothing about guns make statements like this and people who know even less publish it as "news" and how people who know nothing about nothing gobble it up as gospel and pass it on to their even less informed friends.

The media uses terms like "Glock" or "Bushmaster" to make any shooting sound much more ominous to the general public than just "handgun" or "rifle".

Sad, but true, and very well put.

I was at a range in Fl with a friend a few years back, him shooting his G17 me my P99. We were side by side and using the same ammo supply.

The range officer (I'll just call him Tex....little man with big revolver open carried) came over to me and gave me a dressing down for rapid firing.

I tried to explain that we were both taking measured shots between each others shots they were both 9mm pistols with the same ammo and barrel length, and he was mistaken that it was just me rolling. I even gestured at our targets showing the same number of holes.

He knew what he heard.


Jackhole.


I don't miss going to the range.

That's so funny. It's like every woman is Megan Fox because they have a voice.
