I shoot birds that come around my house. Especially pigeons. They love to sit on open casement windows and leave their filthy droppings. My Beeman spring air pellet rifle with 3-9X scope is great for that.
The condo where I do maintenance work had over 300 pigeons killed by the Board of Health for health reasons. Other places in Waikiki also had hundreds of them killed for the same reason. The other birds that come around are bulbols, which is considered an invasive agricultural pest that the state would like to eradicate but they are already fully established. They love to eat the avocados off my tree.
My neighbors are all cool and I get along with everybody on my whole street.
I see no problem. No one has complained even when I target shoot the air rifle for 30 minutes in my yard.
Sad, sometimes you just have to know when to say no. Also that movie made my day expect for the skateboading ones. Thats just plain fun when you wreck your balls on a handrail or even better yet your head on the pavement.
