ah... the pleasures of living in the sticks with a looooooong driveway and a house that is out of site and out of smell from my neighbors. Plus there are only a couple houses on my street and they all know I brew.

The Man could drive by 20 times and never suspect a thing. MWAAA AHHH AHHH!!!!

Everyone once in a while I run out to a LHBS from my office in Boston to the shop in Cambridge so I hop on the T (subway). A couple days ago I was coming back tot he office with a plastic shopping bag.... a couple lbs of random specialty grains and then about 12 ounces of whole leaf hops. i wasn't paying attention and just had all of the hops sitting on top in these vacuum sealed clear pastic bags.

I got about three or four really odd looks. Ehh... screw 'em. I figured if I tried to hide it at that point it would have looked even worse.

Never had them show up from brewing.

Had a sherif come out one day when we were out shooting. He ended up staying out there for about an hour and shot stuff with us. It was scary how terrible he was with his service pistol.

I want to move to wherever it is that you live. If I was shooting in my backyard I would be tasered to death a-la Vancouver Airport Incident.

Never had the police called. Right now though my landlord is trying to sell the duplex I live in. I'm legally required to let people in, but I'm not required to make it look good

Two weekends ago a realtor made an appointment to show it, and that's when I happened to decide to brew. I saw the car pull past the house reaaaal slow, the driver gave me a super dirty look, and then they sped off. I guess that's one potential lost sale opportunity.

The Cops in our county ended up building their own range so they wouldn't have to be embarassed by the rest of us._______________________________________________ _________________________^^^I may have spelled that wrong, but I shoot better than I spell, and I don't enter many spelling bee's!

Common down to Texas. As long as your not in city limits or shooting at people . . . . nobody is going to stop you.

I will be honest, it did sound like WWIII was going on at times that day. We had some friends over and everyone was shooting each others guns. Everything from .17HMR to black powder 45-70 cartridge was being sent downrange.

Hmmm, I have videos of my 3 year old shooting an AR with his grandpa. I need to scrounge those up.

But, once again, the sheriff was scary. I wouldn't trust my life to him and his pistol.
