The plot thickens in the Las Vegas attack.

There are many theories floating around after the Las Vegas attack but there is one that has my full attention and it appears that gun guys around the net are finally dialing into it.

A reader here brought it to my attention (didn't even know he was a gun dude, but I should have known better...he is a Marine afterall).  What the hell am I talking about?

He asked me to listen to a recording that a cabbie made outside the scene.  Additionally he asked me to listen to the rounds going off and the cadence of fire.

Two things struck me as odd.

1.  It didn't sound like 5.56 rounds.  It sounded heavier.  More like 7.62.
2.  The rate of fire didn't sound right.  It sounded belt fed, not like bumpfire.

I don't have the video that he asked me to listen to but if you check out the various gun forums you'll find it. 

Various guys are already doing comparisons with different weapons and to be honest it REALLY sounds like an M240.  Yeah.  I know that sounds batshit crazy but it is what it is.

Think back to the first reports about this incident.

We had reports of a belt fed weapon being found in the room but those reports evaporated.  Then we had all kinds of crime scene photos leaked to the press.

I'm just the messenger but this stinks to high heaven.  I have never seen that happen.  Not even in low level murder investigations (not that murder of any kind is low level but you get what I'm saying).

I'm just telling you what I've heard, what I've seen and what I suspect.  You make your own judgement but this thing is totally off to me. 

Side note.  Maybe my ears are playing tricks on me.  Maybe others are being fooled too.  Perhaps the FBI got sloppy and the Las Vegas police dept leaks and that why photos of the shooter and his weapons hit the web.  Early reports from the media are always up for reviving later so that could explain the belt fed weapon story...but that's a lot of coincidences.
