What if he is recalling a separate incident?I find it difficult to attribute compelling status to J. C.'s claim - circa 21 years after the fact - of being the original UFO witness, unless ...
We know there were several meteor sightings that night.
Just guesswork, isn't it.
Nonetheless, of fundamental significance, what has reportedly been claimed by 'Lucky' Sutton as pivotal evidence, now looks to be anything like.
Join Sutton's avowed discharge of 4 boxes of ammo, having no effect on the creatures as the bullets" bounced off "like from a concrete pavement", came from 'Lucky' Sutton.
If, as seems the case, John Sutton had no idea if he was actually hitting anything at all, it removes this from the equation.
The only shot for which evidence exists, is the window shot.
The only other one reported and which has a clear description of location and circumstances, is the door overhang shot.
There is nothing else substantiated whatsoever.
It comes down to what 'Lucky' Sutton reportedly claims about his other shots, which from our only existing evidence, those 22 August newspapers and the Ledwith interview, seem minimal.
In one of the few specific details we have, the 'Evansville Press' reports:
"Elmer Sutton said he shot at the creatures 17 times with a point .12 gauge shotgun".
If he did, where and when did the rest of this actually occur?
According to John Sutton, noting it was 20 years later and he does caution his memory of events might not be so sharp, it would seem he fired all of his ammunition:- "I fired every bullet" - in a relatively short period of time.
This was statedly directly after 'Lucky' Sutton's window screen shot, when John went out into the yard and followed up the earlier window shot with his pistol.
What happens then?
Still trying to get my head around the various permutations!
One thing I would like to absolutely clarify, is what we think is meant by , "I fired every bullet, nine times"?
Is that taken to mean, he fully reloaded his
pistol nine times? How many bullets would that amount to?
I take it he doesn't mean that he fired every bullet he had... all nine of them?
