Discussion of shooting anything at any person and/or animal is prohibited, and may result in a permanent banning of your account.

1. The exception to this rule is for proper use of legal airsoft and/or paintball markers.


Sorry...

How about calling the cops. That seems to work pretty good.

If the vehicle is occupied, he would be shooting at a person. That is the way the Police are going to see it. That is the way the judge is going to see it.

" The persons that he is shooting at" may not want the cops to find out that they were street racing illegally. The logical and safe solution would be to report them to the police.

hubb is right, it's against these forum rules, NZ law and it's stupid.

We don't build cannons to harm or scare other people, you're just going to get them banned in NZ (legal if you are over 18 at the moment).

If you are going to go ahead with this anyway, we don't want to know, and if you get busted I hope you don't mention spudfiles or spudguns in general at all.

You may think i'm being a tight ass here, but we love this hobby and more bad media is not something we want, especially in a country like NZ which is usually regarded as being safe by the world.

If you shot at the guy's car, he could end up crashing into a house and killing someone. Boy racing is illegal, but unless the cops see them do it, they have nothing on him and everything on you and you will get fined at least $4000 and possibly 6months in jail.

Just don't do it, it'll cause more harm then good, just report the boy racers to the police, don't take the law into your own hands.


Edit:

I see you removed it, well i'm going to lock the topic but keep it, because if they do come back I hope you read my post and decide not to shoot at them.
