    Here's how this works.....

    I'll give a scenario.

    Once I'm finished, you may ask as many questions as you like to solve the crime.

    First correct response is crowned "Smartest Member".

    If you think you've got it, you have ONE post to solve. You explain the murder, and win. If you're wrong, you're out of the running. Say, "I'd like to solve the murder", and offer your explanation.

    The banquet hall smelled of sweat, BBQ, and Hoppes. Lon was shuffling back and forth between there and the kitchen, ensuring each member had food and drink next to their cleaning rods and patches.

    NGIB rodded his PPK. "That was great! Damn glad we came down here."

    Dillinger nodded, Egyptian cotton rag removing debris from the Nighthawk.
    "That was great! Beautiful day, and excellent meal, Lon!"

    Lon smiled, "Just glad you all could come."

    Tango ran a mop through his 12 gauge. "It was great, except for "You know who", man, that guy's a douche. I'm so disappointed."

    The table nodded as one. The guy many had hoped to meet face to face had turned out to be a real tool. Benning stumbled into the room, a large Chivas in one hand, and a larger Chivas in the other. "SUP, BEEYATCHES!!"

    CA357 was running a brush through a Charter Arms 357, "Why don't you slow down, Benny?"

    "Why don't you kissh my arshhhhe, CA?"

    Robo stood up from his plate and his piece, "I think, sir, you should...."

    "I think you should sit yourshelf down, Mr. Popo-man."

    The storm that blew in held off till they were done at the range, but waited no more. The power went out.

    When it came back on seconds later, Benny lay on the floor, dead.

    Whodunnit?

    You have a bare bones story, now.

    You fill the blanks by asking the questions.

    Go!

    What is the cause of death? Can it be determined from basic observation?

    How is the victim lying? Face down? On his back? On his front with his face towards the ceiling meaning that Robo snapped his neck 180 degrees? :eek:

    Did he spill the scotch when he fell dead? If so, good riddance I say!

    Ok, hows this.

    That rotten Irish guy shot him with the PPK. Three shots were necessary because of the wimpy .380 rounds.

    JD with a .45 and CA with a .357 would not have needed a triple tap. Tango certainly wouldn't have fired more than once with a 12 GA. Robo would have slapped him hard enough to break his neck...

    Poor Benning took 3 bullets to the chest and landed falling backwards. This would lead one to believe he was shoot from the front.

    What is the blood spray pattern on Benning and on the floor. Does this match with the victim standing and being shot from the front?

    What is the pattern of the shots? Is it a tight group? Or is it more of a linear stitch like pattern?

    What is the floor made of? Would empty shells make a sound falling from a height of 3 or 4 feet?

    And obviously, is there anyone standing around with a smoking gun in their first?
