In order to attempt to find an explanation to your experience I feel you need to give more information. A few questions that might help are: was there
anything unusual looking about the figure? Were the airsoft weapons spring, gas blowback, or AEG? Where were your friends when this happened? Why did
they start shooting at the figure?
I really don’t understand why some members on this site instantly jump to paranormal conclusions. In most cases the simplest explanation is the
correct one (Occam's Razor/principle of parsimony).
The story that Zickddot told stated that his friends shot at a silhouette of a man running at them "lightning fast." In a situation where you are
firing at a moving target you typically focus on it intently, this coupled with the level of fear I imagine the shooters were feeling could cause
their perception of the silhouette’s speed to become exaggerated. Also, something just occurred to me, if this silhouette was moving “lightning
fast” how were they able to make it into the house?
I do not believe there is anything paranormal in the fact that all they witnessed was a silhouette. The story did say it was dark and, depending on
where they were when this occurred, a silhouette is completely acceptable as the only description.
This story from an outward perspective does not seem paranormal at all. It appears as though Zickddot’s acquaintances became rattled and fired at a
person running towards them for an unknown reason. I will admit that the impatient tapping on the door is rather creepy and does not make much sense.
Someone chasing two people shooting airsoft guns in their direction would not simply tap on their door in an ordinary situation.
With this level of secondary evidence it is difficult to formulate a conclusion, the best one can do is speculate. Perhaps the person chasing them was
on some sort of drug, or maybe the person did not react to the shots because they were not hit in an area sensitive enough to realize that they were
being shot at (This is a likely conclusion if the airsoft weapons were spring loaded).
Even if this case has no paranormal conclusion it is very interesting. Please provide more information if you are able to do so, and thanks for
sharing this story.
