Sorry for skipping out last week. I needed some time off to go to the woods. :D

My mind is foggy as well. Can she come and help? I promise all noises here make perfect sense ;)

You might want to pass on that one. She may still be a cold blooded killer depending on which story you believe.

OK so I am going to take a wild guess about the sound and say to Liam and company... RUN!

me'thinks they're hearing gunfire...in which case, cover would be a really good idea.
sigh...a woman like her could get my mind of things for sure.
Oh, and as one who has lived in the city and currently lives in the woods, Diz, I completely understand!

I also think it is gunfire. However, we seem to be jumping to the conclusion that the bad guys are the ones with guns.

Actually, Tyranos does have the guns from Liam's ship (and probably others). However, the weapons have a DNA fingerprint or something so they won't fire for just anybody. Tyranos needs the Weapons Officer of the Acheron to unlock them, so he's keeping her alive until he can "convince" her.

Remember Natty? It's been a while since we last saw her.

Personally, I think the gunfire is from the good guys. Namely, Kirby Gamble, Big Guy, and what's-his-name. (Cast page needs updating again.) Last we saw them, they told Mitri to stay behind while then entered the city by way of the sewers. I wouldn't be surprised if they've almost caught up with Liam and company.

Oh I agree, its probably Gamble. But friendly fire ain't so friendly. Cover just means a stray round or ricochet doesn't have as high a chance of finding you by accident

Yeah I desperately need to update the cast page but I'm so far behind on everything right now.

The sound of gunfire

I used to live in the city a long time ago (S. Oak Cliff/Dallas,Tx) and I heard gunfire almost every weekend,and sometimes during the week. It stinks to live in an area full of Gang Warfare so that's why I moved into the woods.I still have to go to the city occasionally,but I recommend you to live in the woods.It's peace and quiet there with no sounds of gunfire or noisy vehicles,be it broken mufflers or loud radios.

Rural Development...

"...but I recommend you to live in the woods. It's peace and quite there with no sounds of gunfire..."

I grew up on a farm - extremely rural. But we still often hear the sound of gunfire. Except, instead of gangs, it's mostly hunters and survivalist-types target practicing and aligning their gun sights. Not every day, but often enough.

Also, in the last decade I've noticed that farmlands of the Midwest are becoming not-so-rural and not-so-isolated. Farmland is disappearing, often developed into houses or even small communities. And some of these houses are well-to-do doctors and such who move out to the boonies to retire.

Perhaps part of this is the Baby Boomers gen reaching retirement? Retiring out in the country seems like a popular notion.

Yes the occasional gunshot is not uncommon during hunting season in the country. I think the difference is that you don't hear them at night and it's relatively quiet for the other 9 months of the year.

If it was -just- during hunting seasonS (plural), I wouldn't mind it so much. But it seems practically year round around here. It can occur early in the morning, nearly dusk, or any time in between. Sometimes they'll practice shooting for an hour or more. And some of it is very rapid semi-auto.

Oh come on, it only sounds like a gunfight when we are having a good time! Or practicing for competitions...

Actually helped a friend acclimate his coworker to shooting last weekend. Beautiful tattooed lady at that...should have gotten her number...
Anyway, we went through a bunch of ammo because we were using different firearms [most of which she took a turn at], to get her more acclimated to muzzle blast [which she seems to be sensitive too]
Then I brought out my suppressed rifle and totally screwed that up...now she wants a suppressor!

additionally, this is one of the reasons I think suppressors should be taken off the NFA registry and sold like any other muffler. Reduce noise pollution, increased hearing protection, and increased situational awareness for hunters...but thats another argument

I agree silencers need to come off the NFA list, for the reasons you listed.

Game wardens would disagree with that. Suppressors/silencers would become a big problem with poaching. Not to mention if they got on the streets and into the hands of criminals and gang members. I'm a huge 2nd amendment supporter but that doesn't include silencers in my book.

yah, and every time some place gets concealed carry permits, open carry permits, or constitutional carry, "blood will run in the streets" [and never does]. Seriously, the only people the NFA restricts are the law abiding citizens in the first place. The criminals that want them already have them and use them.

I agree with you 100% about the National Firearms Act and the ATF when it comes to firearms, but not for silencers. Right now there is no legal demand for them so very few are made and sold. If they were legalized there would be tons on the street. My biggest objection is that there is no way to effectively fight poaching if the poachers have silenced weapons. The way a game warden locates a hunter is by the sound when he shoots.
If it's a choice between noise and the damage that poaching can do, I'll take the noise.

I live about 2 miles from a "fish and game club". I hear gunfire so often I don't even notice it anymore.

Machine gun day still gets my attention.
