From our local (retards) media...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Police were investigating Monday morning after someone shot a man late Sunday night.

It happened at about 10:30 p.m. at an apartment complex at 64th and Manchester.

An off-duty officer working at the apartments heard an AK-47 being fired, he said.
.


The man was seriously wounded

Police didn't have any suspects in custody.

----------------------

Damn, I wish I could tell what kind of gun is being used just by the sound of the gunshots. Gotta throw in the "AK-47" assault weapon in there.

me too.

One time I saw a picture of an AK-47, and three people in the near vicinity died from the evil castoff of the assault rifle image.

I'm sure that the officer heard the gun being fired, and they later discovered it was an AK (if it actually was), and then the reporter wrote it that way.

No matter what gun you fire, when someone else hears it, thats the gun they heard!

with a little practice you can get pretty good on what guns make what sounds. a .223, 7.62x39, 9mm, .22LR, a 12 gauge all make different sounds. Hearbreak Ridge has elements of truth

Sure you can tell the difference between a 12ga and .22.. But how could you possibly tell what kind of gun was doing the shooting?

"Oh yeah, I definately heard a 12 ga mossburg 500. I believe it sounded like 00 buck out of 20 inch barrel. I'm only 90% sure though since it was dark outside and I was in the car with my windows rolled up."

While absolutely true in a military environment there will likely be fewer calibers and fewer weapon types in use than in a civilian environment.

There are a lot of civilian rifles that use 7.62x39. Besides, an "AK47" reported by police or witnesses normally turns out to be an SKS anyway.

Yeah, I believe this is probably sensationalized media/cop BS but what's so unbelievable?
If you've been around weapons enough you can tell.....

ETA... what the other posters said concerning the "AK-47" part.

I'm not at the point I can tell model and serial numbers yet...got me on that point.

When I'm on the skeet field I can listen to shots from my club's pistol range pretty good since I have peltor tactical 7S electronic headphones. There's some clues as to what type of gun's being used. A 15 round string of shots isn't gonig to come from a revolver for instance. A 7 shot string is evidence, but not conclusive evidence, a 45 auto is being shot.

A SKS sounds much like a AK47. As far as I know there's no full auto SKS's. If more than 10 shots were fired it would lean towards a semi AK being fired as not all SKS's have hi cap mags, but some do.

Some clues are out there if you're observant enough

yeah, but a 357 and 45 sound different and of course there's 8 rd, even 10 rd mags for a .45, even 13 for a glock 21. Some revolvers are 5 shots like the .454 casuall, some snubbies, etc

And you can always bumpfire an AK or SKS to make it sound like full auto

Consider the source, and get over it.
