    Anybody know the legal status of someone firing their shotgun over the road with buckshot then raining down around my ears..? I rather doubt its on purpose but never the less.

    Before you go with legal action, have you tried simply telling them your concerns and why it's bothering you?

    Repeatedly, its infuriating. Not to mention it has been happening for years. Last season a window broke so the police were called at that point albeit they naturally found no one in the area -.-. Shooting is going to happen here it is the country after all and i'm next to a game wood albeit if my memory serves firing towards roads or buildings is a big no-no...

    I'm no expert to be honest, but if it were me, I'd just wait till the next time a fragment comes down anywhere near you, and call the police immediately and say that you're in danger of being hit... Without them catching them there and then, I guess there's not masses that they can do. Quite frankly though, what inconsiderate, idiotic jerks.

    Indeed, i mean I shoot myself albeit I try to keep it to the club or at least not toward a road or the like. When it happened in this instance both the neighbour and Mother went absolutely bat **** crazy marching over the road to find the little hooligans :rolleyes: Most people are fine around hereit seems to be when their spawn get back from school/uni etc. and go about like a hillbilly blasting left and right.

    Mmm it should be interesting to see if they do anything though. Albeit I did here a quaint anecdote once where some lady was tired of being burgled and the police taking hours to respond she changed tack and claimed to have shot the intruder ... 5 minutes later multiple ARU's are there and aprehend the oik and she is smiling on it.. i might have to try it :rolleyes:

    Yeh, I mean, I'd be surprised if they didn't given there's a genuine concern for safety here... Hahaha, yes I think I've heard a similar anecdote... Say you fear for your life and they'll be there asap!

    I'm pretty sure shooting an air rifle and having the pellets landing in someone else's private property is an offence

    Same probably applies to shotguns
