    It was revealed today that the police have found 186 empty bullet cases/holders at Utøya.
    135 of the youths at Utøya (of 586 present) were registered at dead or injured, although some of those dead (and probably of those injured) were not shot (for example, one boy drowned because he couldn't swim, another fell off a mountain ledge he had climbed onto).

    Since several victims were multiply shot, ABB clearly took aim and didn't waste a lot of bullets, even if the number of bullets actually shot is larger than 186 with a rather wide margin.

    He needed to take some weapons lessons at a registered shooting club in order to gain his licence for the Glock in January this year.

    Beyond that, he doesn't have any professional, registered training as far as I know.

    Fine - Sounds like a righteous hit.
