The pic looks like a Kel-Tec with the slide back.SaltySamurai said:I just watched CNN.com's video report of this, and they show the pistols in evidence bags. One's most certainly a 9mm Sigma SVE. The other is some black polymer frame double-stack compact and I can't tell if it's striker or hammer fire.
The grip texture looks like it could be an HK, but I can't tell if it has a hammer or not. It could also be an XD, but there's something under the slide (locked back in the evidence bag) that looks like a hammer. (which would rule out the striker-fired XD)
Regardless, I'm thinking it was a 9mm round that didn't make it through a cell phone since Sigma's are only 9 or 40 (and this Sigma's magazine had peepholes up to round 15 and their .40 mags stop at 13...even though they hold 14.....I used to own one). And the odds that the other gun is .380 are slim cause really.....who would own a double-stack polymer pistol in .380?
They didn't show the phone.

Even if the CT guy had/has a valid CT license, GA and CT do not have reciprocity with one another so he wouldn't be covered in GA if thats all he had.SaltySamurai said:A 3rd question: did either of the suspects have a GWL or, for the Connecticut resident, CT's equivalent?
If I worked in advertising at HTC, I would be riding this one HARD...AuburnRunner said:http://www.11alive.com/rss/rss_story.aspx?storyid=171685
The phone appears to be a HTC (sprint's iphone) judging by the dented battery in the link.
