The test actually works AGAINST the agent-firing hypothesis, as in the FLIR recreation, people are visible next to all the fired weapons, whereas in the original FLIR, no contiguous people are visible. Guns do not kill people unless other people are firing them, and such people being visible in EVERY instance of the "recreational" gunfire, but in NO instance of the original glints, the test results do not bode well for the contentions of the Branch Davidians' attorney that such glints represent gunfire.
