Hopefully they will be fired horizontally and aimed at something solid.

No, but I'm sure my drunken redneck neighbors will. (I'll be under cover) [:D]

Only if me and my son can sneak off to sight in this super blackhawk I'm looking at for my brother. I don't shoot up in the air. Should be fun to watch my skinny 19 yr old feel the recoil from a .44 magnum for the first time. It's a hogleg, 10 inch barrel, with a Tasco scope.... I'm wondering what it's worth...it's in great shape.

spoken like a true gangster wannabe punk. take a pill dude. i'm probably a bigger racist than you, but jeez man. about the shots, what goes up comes down, think about it.

Firing into the ground,you are safe. Unless you are a mole.
Link Posted: 7/4/2002 7:51:20 AM EST
quietshoez,I am not a racist,and you can be sure I'm not a punk.I do,however,loathe assholes.
Link Posted: 7/4/2002 7:55:46 AM EST
I sure will! And as said before, this is the Fourth of July, with lots of celebratory noisemaking, not Cinco De Mayo...we HAVE guns in THIS country! (I think that was the tone of Kar98's post and I echo that sentiment) That being said, I shall of course add all the little safety thingies about not firing into the air, etc. etc... WHEREVER I fire my celebratory shots, you can bet the projectiles will end up somewhere safe and my brass will be policed up. [;D] And that being said, I'm headed off to shoot off some really COOL fireworks that DON'T leave casings...just paper! Panz [bounce]

No shooting on the 4th for me - unless it is at the range or in self-defense. Eric/Tyler

Somehow, I don't think the Plano Police Dept. likes it when you fire off shots from your firearm in an urban area. so my answer would have to be ummmm NO. However I will be celebrating in other ways.

DonR-yessir BTW,the Cowboys are not as good as they used to be!
Link Posted: 7/4/2002 8:09:13 AM EST
well, i think firing into the air is stupid. we have had a few people hit with rounds fired in the air here in Phoenix in the last few years. what goes up must come down. not very responsible gun handeling. like someone else said "know your target and whats behind it" you never know, might end up like the Afghani wedding party, firing as a USAF plane flies overhead and mistakes your celebratory fire as anti-aircraft fire.
Link Posted: 7/4/2002 8:11:06 AM EST
Yes. I'm working, celebrating the completion of another 30/221.

To get back on topic...you bettcha..37mm bird bombs...come on sundown!!... Have a safe 4th everyone...

Just got back from the range, where I did a little celebratory shooting with a newbie acquaintance. Had a blast! No better way to start the fourth than a little target practice. Think I turned the new guy on to the whole black rifle thing, too. He thought it was very entertaining. He kept grinning and saying "wow!". He did ask me what that funny spring noise was.[:)] Shooting into the air is just stupid. I don't hang around anyone that would do that. Hopefully that was not what araddict was asking.

I hope you mean "DOWN RANGE"!!!

You heard about the wedding in Pakistan didn't you??? They were shooting in the air and "mistaken" for hostile fire. [:D] Good luck...

Fired 44 shots at 600 yds this morning! How's that for celebrating freedom? This ain't no May Day, comrade!

Those in So. Central L.A. might consider this. [url]www.esri.com/news/arcuser/1000/shotspot.html[/url] In theory (not a recommendation) shotguns with birdshot should be relatively safe. In fact here is an article on the subject. [url]www.loadammo.com/Topics/March01.htm[/url]

John Adams on how to celebrate the 4th.. “"It ought to be commemorated as the Day of Deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports,[b] guns,[/b] bells, bonfires, and illuminations from one end of this continent to the other from this time forward ever more." John Adams, signer of the Declaration, and 2nd President of the United States. Take that Michael Bellesiles Mike

Shotgun for me. MAy get a machine gun or two out and do a little target practice to annoy the antis around here!

"Normally when you think of celebratory fire — which is something that is not necessarily uncommon — it's random, it's sprayed" --Col. Roger King [heavy][uzi] Count me in :)
