That is to say, can you tell the difference from the sound?
On any old night I would say what I am hearing is gunfire. Right now, I am not so sure, but I still have a strong urge to duck and cover.

Not at a distance. And I had many years on base, too.

I'd drive out to my parent's house to get away from the uncertainty, but I doubt I could be able to keep a lane.

Hey, a lane is a lane, even if you take it out of the middle! On second thought, stay home. I will.

Ya, I'm pretty sure what I'm hearing is gunfire. It's not sporadic like firecrackers, it's more consistant semiauto fire. And I could swear someones got themselves a damn artillary piece somewhere. sounds like damn WW III. Stupid rednecks. I do think I might not be the most heavily armed neighbor in my hood anymore. Might have to pay a visit to the gunstore to remedy that. The arms race continues!!![:D]

Firecrackers sound like 2 or 3 guys shooting. Even a guy shemptying his magazine as fast as possible doesn't sound like firecrackers. If there was a single gun shot, that would be harder to tell.

Yes, firearms have what I can only describe as a sharper sound. Working as a cop in the projects tends to heighten the senses to such subtle differences in tone.

Yes I can...and boy is that 54R loud as heck.[:D] The AR does'nt sound as loud though....the gangbangers a couple of streets over are firing a Glock as fast as they can pull the trigger. They stopped after the 30 rounder from the AK...then the 54r just made them say Oooooooooooo.[:D] No A-10's out tonight DF...[LOL]

If I have heard it, I can usually identify the gun from the sound. Not all all firecrackers sound the same either. They seem to sound different from year to year. It just may be different brands.

... The real queation here is can you tell the difference between [b]Tannerite[/b] and gunfire?

Usually I can tell most firearms from firecrackers- except for 22LR and .25ACP.

I'm not taking any chances, I've been returning fire for the last three minutes. I'm almost outa ammo tho. At least I have a knife....

Is "shemptying" a magazine something you saw on The Three Stooges as a kid?

Locally: If you are in Newport Beach or Corona Del Mar, they are firecrackers. If you are in Santa Ana or San Juan Capistrano, they are gunshots.

Yeah when the bullet goes by [rofl2]

Jeez! You guys live in a different world. All I heard here was the gentle sound of a deer farting in my backyard. Oh yes, and some pretty wild noises from my lady fair.
