    Default The most accurate shooter in the history of mankind

    Steve Paddock killed 59 people and injured 530 more in Las Vegas from a room 320 feet in the air and over 400 yards away from a field where people had gathered for a country music event.
    And he did all this damage with rapid fire weapons. The difficulty of doing this with these weapons shows an extraordinary weapon control because only moving the rifle by one degree would send the rounds beyond or short of the event.
    The LV Sheriff said today that he fired 1100 shots with 200 being fired through the door at security and that many of his rifles jammed.
    The breaks down to almost 600 hits in 900 shots in 10 minuets.
    Having shot automatic weapons and observing how they tend to climb the ladder the faster you pull the trigger, his accuracy from that distance is incredible. An old man with no formal training.
    Anyone buying this?

    Are they claiming 530 wounded from gun fire?

    Wait - wasn't he in the Air Force? I understood he had a domestic violence charge while in the Air Force that went unreported. I can't see him not getting any formal firearms training if he spent any time at all in the Air Force.
    Hurricane Donald is now a Category 5. Please take all proper safety measures.
