I have been following the Scott Guy murder trial with interest and over the years in my line of work as a Pest Destruction Supervisor am very familiar with firearms. I am probably wrong in suggesting this but have always wondered understandably when a shotgun is used the gun is not traceable like a rifle it having no land grooves in the barrel etc. But what about the firing pin which makes contact with the detonator in the shotgun shell, does it not have microscopic characteristics that can identify the gun used? I know that after much use of a firearm a firing pin will hit the detonator in a specific way through wear and often develop scratches on the pins surface.

Shocked Ewen McDonald is Guilty, cannot believe he got off, he is a compulsive liar and a clearly a very dangerous person. What is happening to NZ Justice System. This is appalling miscarriage of Justice!!! Hopefully new evidence will come to light, this is a travesty. Scott Guy has no life, Ewen McDonald does not deserve any either !!!

I come from feilding but now live in auckland, i followed this case right through, i can believe the jury came to not guilty, Ewan knew how scott died before the police said anything, i gues they now have to relook at the case and find out the truth not only for the family but for feilding.

I dont think Ewan was guilty either Its going to be hard to pick up the pieces and keep going with all the conjecture about I hope his family support him He did do a lot of hard work for the Guy family and lifted them all up Sometimes working too hard can get to you
