Talking Help 911 there's a man with a gun!!!!

Hey,
I hope you get as much enjoyment out of this as I did. I'm out bashing today at my favorite spot when all the sudden cops come flying up from everywhere . Seems that someone thought my remote was a hand gun and called 911. Luckily one of the cops was an old school RC racer back in the day, saw my truck in the back of my car and called off the persuit. So no guns ablazing or getting shot at We had a good laugh about it.

what kind of gun has an extendable areial on it? lol! with an LCD screen and soundless bullets? whoever dobbed you in must have been somewhat far away if they didnt see an antenna and LCD on it. also if they saw you continuously pulling and holding down the trigger then how come it didnt make any noise. silly people, oh well.

happened b4 to someone where the cleaning lady thought a guys batteries were bombs, lol

Consider yourself lucky. I was almost arrested for attempted kidnapping while bashing with my trucks. I am glad people are watching out for kids and such but it does get kind of annoying.

Maybe they thought it was a ray gun?

The term 'dumb-ass' springs to mind.

Some popular UK slang also seems appropriate, but it's not really Forum friendly!

HAHA, nice story. A RC sounds more like a star ship than a gun!

I was skipping down the path with a line of kids behind me and my LST leading the way.

ROFL....... proof stupid people are BREEDING !!!!!! I've had cops called on me plenty in my day for RC something-or-another. Mostly ol' farts cause its to loud, or I'm having a good time and theyre not! But A Gun?!?!?!? Now If I was that Officer I would go find the person that called, and warn them=to pay attention before they call for no reason.

Haha, i was putting some practice in with a mate once, we were standing down on the gorund with our TX's (setting slipper clutch). I turned around and a lady who was walking through just froze up... then saw the rc car and sighed "holy ****, i thought you had a gun!!"

Now, spekaing of dumb asses?

This was at a very old, well established RC TRACK!!! lol
