We used to years ago... (We lived on a farm miles from nowhere)

I haven't done so in twenty some years, but I hear shots every year... is it you?[?]

I thought I heard about six or seven shots fired in succession yesterday night but no police sirens afterwards. It didn't really sound like fireworks either.  Not only that, he was a day late too.

I didn't mean to imply that we were anything but safe...

We used the same safe practices we always did... There was just something cool about it when I was a kid that's all...

I'd say that anyone who shoots up into the air to celebrate the new year is a fucking tard, but that would be a grave insult to the mentally handicaped.  So instead I'll say that anyone who shoots up into the air is an irresponsible and dangerous shitbag instead.

Edit to add:

I did hear a few shitbags around the stroke of midnight though.  What a great way to celebrate a new year; knowing that you might have lobbed a chunk of copper and lead into someone's car or head miles away.

I went shooting on New Years Eve and no I'm not a fucking "tard." My friend and I were quite safe, we shot a several Chemlights that were up against a well known back stop at a gun range and practiced all normal "day time" safety measures..We had a blast...and learned a lot a about flash hiders and which are most effective...Thanks..

I used to but haven't done that in over 20 years.  I always shot into the ground. Its not too safe to fire into the air.

I am sure people at the HUN FARM were firing rounds, but not necessarily into the air.

Shotguns in the air dont hurt anything, or do you city fellas just shout "BANG" when you hunt?

When I was living in a rural area we would fire blank shotgun rounds but I would never fire a live round into the air.
