    So I had just gotten home about 15 minutes ago and I was taking stuff out of my truck when I hear a POP from across the street. That's not so unusual. There's construction going on nearby; could be a dropped sheet of plywood. Or a car backfiring around the corner.

    POP.

    POP POP.


    :squint:

    I am now looking very hard in that direction and also moving so that the brick apartment building is providing me more cover.

    :squint: Time to go inside.



    What should I do? I called 911 but somebody else beat me to it & cops were on their way. Meanwhile the Mossy has gone from condition 3 under the bed to condition 1 next to the bed. JIC. :hsd:

    Just sit with the weapon within arms length and wait till the cops arrive. Then take pics of the enslaught.

    Meh. I never saw anything and by the volume (loudness) of the shots, I'm guessing they were probably a neighborhood over (maybe 150-200 yards & behind some trees.)





    I'm gonna feel bad if it's some dood on his acreage getting called. We're on the edge of town here. :o

    Still, I've been in this apt for nearly 4 years and never heard gunshots before. :p

    Closest I've been to ever getting shot at was when I was doing a ride along with my buddy. He was arresting this crack head on some warrants and all of a sudden we hear 2 loud pops. He draws his weapon and we start looking around and hear 3 more shots and see the muzzle flash (around 2am). He calls in shots fired and about 20 cruisers show up and do a full sweep of the neighborhood and find some little 15 year old with the weapon in his ants hiding behind a bush.

    Mmmm.. too many shots unless there were a bunch of them together. Also, what you don't see is another neighborhood after that field. Seems like a poor place for it.

    Closest I have been to being shot was this weekend. We were shooting, and some fuckers decided to stop earlier on the trail and shoot in our direction. I hear more than a couple whizzes...

    Nothing amiss tonite. Hopefully no one will try to break in this evening as I am enjoying a martini and therefore my judgement is likely to be impaired. :p
