the way the gun was loaded is consistent with a professional hit.

And how is that, exactly?

    So the cops are now suddenly experts on contract jobs… How nice…

    UNPOSSIBLE! Every one KNOWS that the Peace-Loving Members of the Pan-African Movement would NEVER use Hitmen to Destroy their Reactionary Enemies! This is an OBVIOUS Set-Up by the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy and their wish to Re-Enslave People of Color!

    professional hitman can only afford 3 rounds per gun?

    ^ And for that Beretta NEOS, that’s what…a quarter’s worth of .22LR?

    With bullets? Maybe they’re loaded backwards, per H&K.

    Professional..clowns?

    Only a pro would load for a single Mozambique, and be absolutely certain he wouldn’t need to be ready for a second Mozambique.

    I don’t know…that doesn’t convince me.

    They were loaded pointy end out. True sign of a pro.

    One example would be a mix of hollowpoint and armor piercing ammo.

  10. Kristopher Says:

    They were loaded with .88 Magnums. They shoot through schools with those.

    ROFL

  12. Shootin' Buddy Says:

    I’ve done hit cases (well, two). Both times the guns (a Smith I frame in .32 and a Ruger 10/22) were fully loaded.

    Why would a professional killer only load three? What possible advantage is that, especially since the objective is to destroy the weapon after use.

    Someone educate me, please.

    The sandwhich I ate today was consistent with those used in lunch. Everything is coming together…

    Holowpoints with cyanide in them?

    Ninja rounds???

    Okay this is wild speculation on my part, but here goes…

    One possible reason for only three cartridges is if the pistol is fired twice at the body of the victim, and the final round used as a coup de grace to the head. This suggests the pistol would be discarded almost immediately, perhaps at the scene of the shooting. Minimal ammunition might be an attempt to limit the amount of forensic evidence left behind.

    Sounds like some made up junk from CSI Miami. Everyone knows that only hit men use “high capacity clips”. Honest people only load 2 rounds.

  18. KPete Says:

    I think the authorities should count their blessings. They should be greatful that these guns didn’t have a shoulder thing that goes “up”. Now thats the tue sign of a hit.

    Two thoughts:

    When discarding a gun “almost immediately”, how would having extra rounds still in the magazine add any additional forensic evidence over and above what the gun itself already provides?

    If a pro is concerned about leaving forensic evidence, and is good enough to only need three rounds…why not a revolver? They don’t throw evidence all around the crime scene willy-nilly like a semi-auto does.

    Just sounds to me like cops talking out their butts again…

    Left handed bullet, right handed bullet and the third one was a religous, gender and race un-biased +P+ round.

    A true mechanic!

    EVERYBODY knows that when loading rounds your fingerprints get on the bullet part, so if you only have the three bullets that are now mashed up inside the hittee’s body parts CSI will never be able to unfold them and get your fingerprints. And we all know about wiping off prints from the brass before you load them into the magazine, right? ‘Cause nobody uses their fingers to load brass any more, right?

    stay safe.

    meaning don’t leave a half loaded gun at a hit where some bystander could pick it up and shoot the fleeing hit man.
