Wiki info

Paddock meticulously planned the attack. On September 25, six days before the shooting, he checked in to a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel with 10 range bags and a computer. On September 28, he moved to the corner suite, which overlooked the festival grounds, and he stayed there for three days. After Paddock killed himself, the police found 23 rifles and one handgun inside his room, including four DDM4 rifles, three FN-15 rifles, one AR-15 rifle, one . 308-caliber AR-10, one AK-47, and at least one made-to-order LMT rifle, all very expensive, according to a law enforcement source. His arsenal included a large quantity of ammunition in special high capacity magazines, holding up to 75, or up to 100 cartridges each. Two of the rifles were resting on bipods, and were equipped with high-tech telescopic sights. Twelve of the weapons were outfitted with bump fire stocks, a recently-available firearms accessory that allows semiautomatic rifles to fire rapidly, simulating fully-automatic gunfire. Audio recordings of the attack indicated Paddock used these stocks to fire at the crowd in rapid succession.
