EEK!

I just heard from a friend of mine that he was driving through palomares hills on his way to Fry's and he heard a loud BANG in his car. He stopped and apparently someone took a potshot at him as he drove by and put a big hole in the A frame of the car behind the driver side door.

He drove back and found a sheriff arresting some teenagers. Apparently they had shot at at least 3!!!! cars as they drove by. One was a mother and child, and in that car the shot hit the back window and shattered glass all over the kid.

There is now a big dent in my friend's car... As far as I know nobody was hurt and the people involved have been arrested.

Still... If you get bored, going out and shooting at passing cars is ***NOT*** the thing to do on a saturday night!

Shooting at cars is illegal :thumbsup:

He thought the bang was a rock and he didnt see that it was a bullet hole until after he got to Fry's. He passed a sheriff on the way back from Fry's near where it happened and decided to report it in person. It just so happened that the same sheriff was also arresting the person who allegedly did it at the same time my friend decided to stop and report it.

In order to prevent law-breakers from shooting at cars, we are going to pass a law that prohibits ownership of guns and ammo within 300 yards of public roads and/or moving vehicles.

Some punk shot a paintball at my car when I drove down my parent's street. If I had caught the guy...

Better than a bullet though.

If they'd allow proper carry laws, he could've returned fire.

This should be a next day trial, about 3 minutes long.

WRONG! Shooting at cars is not illegal. Shooting at occupied vehicles is. If you own the car or have written permission from the owner, you are not violating any other laws and you do it safely, you can legally shoot at cars all day long.

maybe that kid should have been involved with sports to keep him occupied, or some other type of extracurricular activity.....or maybe he should have had a big brother......;)

In a situation like this you're better off to just hit the accelerator for a bit.

I know some people like things symmetrical, but returning to the kill zone just to get a matching hole on the other side of his car is a bit much!

Ya, much more fun to put that matching hole in it yourself! :)

Make sure if you're shooting at an unoccupied car with permission, that you are in an area where the discharge of a firearm is legal. :)

I'm guessing this was part of some kind of idiotic gang initiation? Sickening to say the least.

When I sailed with kids from some rough high schools, we had a saying: dysfunctional kids come with dysfunctional adults.

I got my rear corner window shot out of my Chevy on a freeway in Atlanta years ago. Of course, I promptly stomped on the gas and changed out 6 lanes over. $200 to replace the damn thing.

I got to look at the car today. Looks like a .22 or something similar. The impact did not puncture the outer layer of steel that makes up the skin of the car, but it did leave a dent with a visible crater in the middle. I'm not all that knowledgeable about ballistics, but I know that if my .223 rifle had hit there it would be a hole in the car not a crater, and its too small a dent to be a 9mm...

If it had been only an inch over there would have been a big hole in my friend.

Scary stuff.
