    You forgot to add checkered shirt= gun.

    Well, no shots fired so I guess checkers was more of a cat guy?

    Jeezus- BB gun? We used to bring cap guns to school. Mine was only confiscated because I was ‘brandishing ‘ in class. Around the house most of us ran around with BB guns.

    The callers need to start be charged with false reports. If you're too stupid to identify a pump BB gun, you shouldn't be calling the police about guns.

    to be fair, and hear me out here, was there a possibility of there being too little showing for reasonable doubt? maybe the dude was acting "strange or suspisious"? people are scared of anything if the muzzle isnt red or neon orange. cant really blame the caller with the info at hand.

    I am ok with people getting concerned when they see someone with a weapon. I don't expect them to understand what is a BB gun and what is an AK. My issue is the "possibly carrying the weapon" and maybe that is the police adding the "possibly" so as not to freak out everyone, but this is when an umbrella gets considered a gun and someone's day gets really bad.

    I'm absolutely not ok with this because I carry a firearm everywhere.

    are you walking around like decent member of society (if visible, holstered and carrying yourself within presentable means) or do you look or behave sketchy or unapproachable brandishing what looks like a firearm? i would assume thats the difference between you and lumber shirt guy and the reactions you would get

    I got jacked up while dressed in a suit, exiting my car putting on my suit coat and walking in to work. The report was 'well dressed man with gun running in to building'. It took about 4, or so, lit up cruisers and more cops than that to find me approximately 20 minutes later as I was behind locked doors. They must have run my plate while they couldn't find me but it didn't stop the LEO's from pulling their weapons on my coworkers and one spouse. I have written about it here before.

    ETA: I got a 'sorry' and a 'be on your way' from the head officer and one FUDD cop was pissed at me 'for what you, (I), caused'.

    If SWAT was there; it would be the wrong house, the "perp" would be pinned down in the hallway and shot in the back.

    Obviously, the circus performers were not familiar with Commonwealth v. Couture.

    In the incident you're referring to they had the right house but the guy they killed was the "perps" step father and the crime was a teenager selling nickel bags of pot at the gas station down the street.

    Why they decided a 2am no knock warrant with flash bangs and assault weapons was preferable to grabbing the little b***h when he walked down the street for his next sale is beyond me.

    You'll shoot your eye out kid!

    I wonder if he's gonna get jacked up over hunting laws if he was shooting squirrels.

    I am not an advocate of open carry, however I have found that life in NH is so refreshing!

    A few months ago we were in a rather nice/expensive seafood restaurant and one of the patrons was open carrying . . . nobody blinked.

    This past weekend we were in a buffet restaurant and a patron was open carrying . . . again nobody cared. Nobody was called, nothing was locked down and life proceeded as normal!

    I'm going to love living in NH!!!!

    Well, now he has a good avatar for NortheastBBShooters.Com.

    Those are JPEGs.
    GIFs, or it didn't happen.

    In reality the provocations for someone shooting squirrels
    run the entire gamut from squirrels actually damaging his actual property,
    to squirrels not actually damaging a neighbor's property.

    On the one hand, the guy probably bought a new BB gun from Walmart
    before the cops got all their stuff put away.

    On the other hand, the squirrels were right back on the guy's lawn
    before he even reached Walmart.

    Medium build?

    Bet they didn't even make him get a new plate when he went up for seconds.
