A couple years ago , 3 now...my son was play shooting at his friends that he plays paintball with with a paintball gun without the Hopper ( a container on top of the gun that holds the paintballs). They were in 8th grade. Two younger kids down the street got scared, told there dad and the police came and took the gun. Fined me 400. plus had to pay for court cost. They first wanted to charge him with "assult with a deadly weapon" and shooting a "firearm" in city limits,( a paintball gun is no firearm) . The charges were droped to "disordely conduct" .

So here we are 3 years later and I still do not have my paintball gun back , even though I have been asking for the last few years. I would keep getting the story we "still havent found it" or haven't had the time. So now we have a new chief of police and I ask him about my painball gun. One of the cops that has been here since this started told the new Chief of police that I have been asking for my gun back for a long time.

So the Chief shows up a couple days ago and says this , The now chief of police in another town who was working in our town at the time said he brought the gun here but I was not here, just some girl in a white van!!! Well now I am ready to here some opinions and what should I do next ??

*mod--was not sure where to put this thread, please fix if needed*

I'm betting he or another cop just took it, it happens all the time. Sometimes it makes it into evidence, often times if its something they've been wanting or something particularly "cool" it gets "lost" long before the evidence room. They should really keep a better grip on the things they confiscate.

Why are you posting this in ATS? I'm not sure it belongs here but...

I'm not really sure I understand your post but I think this is the gest of it. The old chief of police is now working in another town and when the new chief asked him about it, he told him that he had tried to return it to you (and you think he's lying about it).

IF that is what is happening, then, if all you want is your paintball gun, then it looks like you could easily get it back because the old chief has said that he's tried to return it. If what you want is some vindication, because the old chief lied, then I'm not sure you're ever going to get it. After all, I'm not aware that lying is illegal and even if it is, sure would be hard to prove.

So.... what is it you want from him? Just your paintball gun, or, your paintball gun and vindication? If it were me, I'd go with just the paintball gun and forget the rest. Don't let vengeance eat you up because it WILL. Get past it...

Your son was not playing in a safe designated area with a paintball gun. They can be dangerous, and he could have been shooting at the little kids. Teens do lie to their parents, as they do not want to get into more trouble. I think you should of had your son buy himself a new toy with his own money after he paid you back for the fine.

I say, suck it up and put in down as a lesson learned.

But the paintball gun didn't even have the hopper... Hm. Honestly, it's pretty sad that the kids ran and told their father... yay for the wussificiation of America's youth. Personally when I was their age, we'd ride 4-wheelers on the road, dirt-bikes, play paintball, BB-Guns and fireworks in the back yard, all that good stuff and we didn't get "told" on or any of that trash. It's what being a kid is all about.

I can understand maybe not for ATS,if so, sorry my bad. I guess the point I was making , because I could win in court easily. And I am not mad or want revenge , its just another case of police abuse that seems to be growing by the day. Well I take that one back , I am mad , people are getting railroaded everyday....its just sad.

I agree. Recently, my brother and his friend were at a bachelors party and they got off the bus with the rest of the people at the party. However, they wanted to smoke so they fell behind, and then entered the casino (where the party was being held) later. The officer in charge of gambling affairs immediately looked at my brother's friend (a diabetic) and said something looks funny about you. He said yeah, I haven't taken my insulin. The guy eventually said go take your insulin and I'll let you into your party when you come back. So they went back to the room to take the insulin and they showed up. The guy wouldn't let them into the party upon their re-arrival. So my brothers friend proceeded to have an argument with the guy, who eventually revealed his status. However, my brothers friend didn't believe him and the guy had the state police show up. Upon their arrival the guy was like its that m'fer to my brothers friend. Upon throwing him to the ground and handcuffing him, my brother standing to the side saying nothing, the guy said oh and get that faggot too. So they arrested my brother, and upon arresting him they found a (1) vicadin in his pocket which he used for back pain. This was sunday at like 2 am. So, he calls my parents Sunday at about 7 am tells them he's arrested, my mom finds out that he is required to go before a judge and has to wait until 1:00 on monday. In the jail cell they have 0 beds, 0 mattress' and only gave you a blanket. You were required to sit on the hard cement floor as that was the only place. Turns out the states attorney drops the charge of vicadin, and puts a charge on him for resisting arrest. It's total b.s.

You can still shoot paintballs through a paintball gun without the hopper. You just have to feed them through one at a time.

Paintball guns can cause some serious damage if the canisters aren't regulated. That is why you have to have the guy who manages a field regulate them before you are allowed on the field.

They can break skin and windows. I have had bb gun fights as a kid and have been shot with a paintball gun that hasn't been regulated.

I rather get shot with a bb gun. Plus, depending on what type of material you are wearing, the paint doesn't come out.

Edit to add-

On topic.

If you have gone 3 years without the paintball gun then chances are you have probably bought a new one. If you haven't then paintball isn't that big of a deal in your household.

Either way, chalk it up as a loss because your kids weren't being responsible.

You can buy a new one at walmart for about 30 dollars.
