seriously chased by a conservationalist and you stopped?

Mate, come on, who has the gun? you or him? and there was two of you! bash the prick!

like the guys above me running away is the best idea, and KEEP YOUR FACE PARTIALLY OR COMPLETELY HIDDEN.

make sure you leave nothing behind too.

If they absolutely must follow you and are catching up to you, i would just wheel 180°, stop and say:

"freeze motherfucker or your toast"

anyways, ive had a few close calls, but i never stay in one place too long and most of the guys who have seen my guns want a friggin go of it, not to dob!

anyways, another handy hint is try to make your gun modular too if you can so you can collapse it and bail onto streets and into resdential areas if you must.

good luck this time!

Hoast. I dont know about NZ. But you will most definetly get off with a warning unless you are shooting it extremely dangerously. Like at a friend/animals.

Most likely it will get confiscated. You will get a fine etc etc.

Has no one here been to Totse? A lot (99%) of what you want to put in the "Aussie Spudgun Handbook" is already posted all over Totse. Mainly running from the cops.

That whole paragraph Killjoy posted about running through thick brush and off streets so cars cant chase you, Totse. :wink: Not saying he copied it from there, it's just that I've seen the same general information there.

Oh,
Haha my chemistry teacher always raves about how he managed to outrun two police officers and their dogs... but he went into a river and ran upstream and got out of the water before the dogs could trace the scent in the water... not that exciting.


They proved that on Mythbusters. :lol: Also, I thought that K-9s are usually (if not always) German Shepherds, not Blood-hounds or anything.

Lol Mythbusters is there anything they wont do? But running from the cops and hiding in the scrub is more of an urban past time here its shoot and when they come you cop it sweet coz half the time Im in the bush shooting.

Well that all was from my own personal experience, but totse did inspire me to try some methods which i modified or stopped using. I used to cruise that site for hours reading crap though, course now i have better things to do, but some of that stuff was pretty interesting.

Never had thar problem twitch. The cops ive run into have always laughed and sent me on my way no dramas! I know one kid who was shooting at houses and the cops just took the cannon, broke it down, handed it back to him and tild him not to build another.
But i sapose difernt cops in different areas have different oppinions!

I got to a cliff face lookout thats well away from the general public, but even then you have to be really careful. Some cops are jerks but generally if you go with the the flow and say its for science you can get away with it. As for the wanker that called the boys on you, you should have ditched his ass and run, fork him whats he gonna do?
