My brother was a marksman during his high school years and has a few riffles, so last week I got him a pellet gun as a gift.
He was shooting at paper targets in his backyard when a cruiser drove by, it turned out that one of those guys writing parking tickets called them after he saw what was happening.
Another cruiser came from the opposite direction and 4 cops came into the backyard, guns drawn.
When they came closer I guess they realized it was an air gun (sound probably), so they walked in and after a few minutes of discussions pretty much said it's better to do it in the basement or somewhere on a farm.
I don't know if there were any changes to these laws since few years back but gun fires at under 500FPS and I couldn't find any municipal laws prohibiting discharging it within city limits (outdoors)..anyone had any experience with this?
PS. Yes they can be dangerous, but if you handle them right and know what you're doing then they're pretty safe. They could take an eye out but then again so can a finger..
