As long as you're not dangling your dongle you'll be fine, or maybe that's exactly what he's expecting

And Telboy, NG, and a couple of others that were there

Anyway Sara, whats behind your garden? also have you got any next door neighbours and do you have a footpath running down 1 side of your garden?

Asking as, the law requires all projectiles to stay within your boundary, and your not allowed to shoot within 50 feet of the centre of a public right of way.

The important difference there is that you was standing opposite me, the others were by my side, checks parting, so there was not room with a view

And back on topic, i have Maple trees at the end of my garden and another back garden backs onto mine. I will be able to get the pigeons on the ground when they go for my veg. They also have a tree house in a hooge conifer at the side of my house, they are not getting away

Pants on fire
He works nights and so is in bed in the day and the kids are at school. I think that if you fire into the air you cant do any harm to someone on the ground, unless a bird lands on their head

I have a pretty big garden so most deaths will occur on the veg patch

Sara,

Can you not get those dogs of yours to do something useful like chase the birds away?

Before you start shooting at living creatures having had no shooting experience or any idea about how to deliver a humane kill could you please just outline for us the non-lethal alternatives you have tried?
