Smoking gun ?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I'm a "virgin" to this board so please be gentle, Reading thru many of the posts/threads here I've seen many references to a "puff of smoke" coming from a supposed assassin's rifle on the grassy knoll. And yet some time ago I saw a documentary which stated that modern day rifles ( including rifles circa 1960) do NOT emit any such smoke. And that when O.Stone tried to reproduce the smoke for J.F.K. he had to bring in a smoke machine. Now, I'm quite aware there are many bad documentaries out there and I certainly dont belive everything I see on T.V. but I would appreciate some comments from you experts, Thanks, Denis.

I'm not an expert Denis, esp not with firearms. But I think circa 1963 era rifles emitted smoke.

They certainly emitted a strong smell of gun powder, which many witnesses (some mentioned in David Talbot's new book "Brothers" for example) recall smelling as they drove past the grassy knoll.

Does a photo or film exist that shows smoke from that or another area? I've never seen it. Would it be on the Nix film?
