So I gotta get this off my chest, it's really pissing me off, I'm just stewing over it today.
Yesterday me, my wife and a buddy we're playing golf at a local course, in a shitty neighborhood, when we were shot at by a couple of kids with BB guns or so we think.
Here's the story, we were teeing off on the 13th hole, behind the teebox about 50yrds is a 4 lane highway between the teebox and highway is a row of trees and some really tall grass. I'd won the last hole and was about to hit when we hear pop pop pop pop pop several fairly loud pops and my buddy lets out "MOTHER FUCKER", I look at the back of his head, he shaves his head and it's just pouring blood.
I look behind us and see 2 teenage boys take off running, initially I'd thought they'd shot off fireworks so I take out after them through the waste high grass. I see them in the woods and start yelling at them and running at them with my 9 iron in hand. They bolt through the woods and according to my wife who was still at the teebox ran past her, she started to say something about how dick it was to shoot off fire works when she noticed one of them had a gun, so she shut up.
When I got back to my wife and buddy he was still bleeding like a stuck hog, she was fine and I was livid, then I found out it wasn't fire works they were shooting it was some type of gun, that scared the piss out of me. Maybe they shot fireworks off at us and we carring a gun, maybe it was some crazy automatic BB gun, I don't know. We called the police and gave our best description but the police said it was highly unlikely they'll catch them, which I understand I wanted the kids to see police and hopefully scare them a bit.
The thing that really pisses me off is I saw the little shits go toward the teebox when I was putting on the previous hole and they were no where to be found when we got to that hole. I had a feeling that something was up because they had to be somewhere but I'm sometimes overly cautions about things and thought I was being silly, until we were "ambushed".
This morning I get a call from my buddy who says he spent the night in the ER having a large projectile removed from his skull, he said it was 3x's larger than a BB and metal. Since that phone call I've been steeming mad, I realize now I could have been shot when I chased after them or they could have shot my wife or any number of things, hell they'd already shot my buddy. These were FN kids! What the hell has this world come to when you can't go smack around a golf ball and have to worry about being shot.
