  1. Things may get a bit ugly over the next few days in NYC.

  2. Why 50 times? Did he run out of ammo :D

    Whats more worrying is that an estimated 50 rounds were fired but both targets were only wounded :?
     
  4. Not wounded - one was shot dead

    looks like its going to be a hot winter in NY.
     
  7. Just imagine what they would have done had he been South American and running to get on the Metro whilst wearing a heavy jacket!
     
  8. A screen for a new series of Trigger Happy TV perhaps?

    Seriously, poor bloke though, on his wedding day.....
     
  9. Still, at least he wasn't chained to a lamp post bollox naked, pelted with flour and had his nuts greased.

  12. 31 times?

    2 reloads? 1 up the spout and 2 full mags? That's a lot of trigger time.

    Were the Officers being engaged at the time?
     
  13. He had a stoppage, changed mag and then emptied it into the car.
     
  14. Could be 1 reload, Glock 17 mag has 17 rounds therefore 2 mags = 34 rounds?
     
  15. No but the groom was.

    Ahem

    Taxi!
