My window is up, and I can hear what sounds like either a jackhammer on steel plates, or a machine gun or two with very large ammo capabilities. It might be Fort Jackson, because it sounds a long way off, but the Fort should be too far for the noise to carry. I've never heard anything like it.

So what's wrong with a little beautiful music to fill the background?
Link Posted: 3/18/2006 10:11:24 PM EDT
Well, I live downtown.

Sounds like the south side of town, but I have some buildings around--could be reflected from a lot of places.

Its just your neighbors getting busy! Dont worry.
Link Posted: 3/18/2006 10:20:08 PM EDT
Update: coming from Northeast side of town. Sounds like 2-5 km. Called 911, they don't have any calls. At least 2-3 full autos, if that's what they are. Heard what sounded like one shotgun blast.

Be sure to keep us updated. I heard what sounded like a large explosion followed by two gun shots not far from my house a few nights ago. Nothing ever came of it.

That means the guys with guns have been overwhelmed and are now being eaten! Get those windows boarded up!!

Fort Jackson is too far away. I am not 100% sure it's gunfire, but I can't imagine anything else that loud.

Whatever it is has started up again.

Well, it must be some kind of jackhammer, maybe a night road crew on that side of town. If it were weapons fire, there would be helicopters.

^^Hahahaha, So yeah I heard what I think are gun shots so I log on AR15.com and post about it, maybe someone here knows who is shooting or can somehow be able to tell me what exactly it is I'm hearing. I think I will post a few more times then call the police... Damn I should have turned off the TV before I went to bed, My bad

Open window, return fire, listen for silence, repeat as necessary.

I heard a helicopter; if there were really people shooting, there would be more.

Well, I guess it was some kind of industrial/road construction noise, but I never heard anything like it. Like two or three giant jackhammers going at once, intermittently.

It is not that hard to convert a semi-auto gun into a full-auto, all you have to is just "file down the sear a little."
Link Posted: 3/19/2006 8:45:06 AM EDT
I hear that daily, at least it aint incoming arty.

'Guess you never heard an excavator with a hydraulic breaker attachment huh ?



Commonly used in rock demolition. It's just a huge jackhammer that is put in place of the digging bucket and runs off the excavators auxillary hydraulics.

Sheesh... I though I was paranoid.
