Interesting evening at my place.
About an hour and 15 minutes ago, I was sitting on the couch watching something on the history channel. Parents are out of town. All of the sudden I hear 2 loud blasts from outside. Sounded like a shotgun. While getting my Maglite and phone out of my pocket I noticed the motion light in my backyard turn oun. Oh crap. Ran upstairs and loaded my(don't laugh, my reenacting weapons are the only guns in the house) M1860 Colt Army from Uberti. Called 911, Police showed up about pretty quickly, about 5 minutes after the shots. When they arrived, I left the pistol in the house and went outside. Police took a report from myself and the other neigbors. Apparantly, my nextdoor neighbor saw someone in his backyard, and fired two shots into the air. Guy ran off in my direction, and is what set off the motion light. Police are currently searching the neighborhood. I've shut off all lights, shut the blinds, closed and locked windows and double checked the doors, and loaded the double barrel 12 Gauge. Its going to be a long night.
