Ya' see, they were expecting a gang with automatics shooting up the streets. Well me and the officer start chatting and I tell him what I'm doing, why and with what. Gave a quick lesson on paintball to him so he understood what I talking about and gave a quick demo. (emptied my hopper in about 30 seconds) My god did his eyes bug and he had the crap-eating grin on his face. So I fill the hopper back up and make some adjustments and hand it to the cop and tell him to give it a try. Well he's take a few shots (hit's my motorcycle a few times
and made a comment about the trigger. It's REALLY short) and continues to light up the inside of my garage. Well, my neighbor comes running over and starts yelling at the cop! (she's not all there and likes vodka as much as I like paintball) She starts yelling about how she called to get them to stop me from shooting everything in the area, NOT to help. Bla bla bla and so one. Well the cops is getting pissy at this point and starts in on her about yelling at HIM. I guess you're not supposed to do that. So he's pretty much ignoring her now and continues shooting the rest of the hopper. She's yelling the whole time gives up and leaves. Next thing we know a call comes over his radio while we're talking more about paintball. Dispatch sounds a bit confused and we hear sirens coming. "Are you in a shooting?" asked dispatch (in a nut shell). We both turn around to see "nutcase" (my little nickname for my crazy neighbor) coming out of her house again yelling more. She called the cops on the cop. She told them that the cop was in a "shoot out" with the "gang with automatics"!! The cop was bull****! He tells her to shut up and straightens things with dispatch and all of a sudden the sirens just stop. But of coarse they come on over anyway to see what the hell is going on. 3 more cruisers with 3 slightly annoyed cops (at least not at annoyed at me for a change). So now all 4 of them are yelling at "nutcase" about make false reports and such and REALLY letting her have it. She's going off about the "gang" shooting up the streets (me in my garage). So the boys explain life to this freak for the last time. Well she stomps off all pissy and goes back inside her house. Well the first cop is explaining to the rest what I'm doing and asks me to demo and show where I've been shooting and bla bla bla. So I do another demo (same as the first one) and all of them are bright-eyed and want to try it out. So the 3 new ones are passing my marker around trying it out and I'm explaining the game to the first one a little more. They were like kids in a candy store. One starts asking about range and such. Well I have a very small yard so he lets me shoot a few down the street a few times. That was fun. Well nutcase sees this (while she's peeking out her window blinds) and comes running out screaming" See I told you he was shooting up the street!! Now he's doing it in front of you!! Do something about it!!" The first cop starts explaining life again.... and gets SLAPPED!! Right across the face. I couldn't believe it. The cop just smiled while he rubbed his cheek. Then tossed her to the ground and cuffed her sorry vodka drinking arse. Well she sat in the car a few while the boys played with my Timmy and we chatted some more. It was a nice afternoon. For me anyway.
