How reckless and stupid!

How did they know if what they were firing at wasn't someones personal property, military equipment, or even manned by a human being?

Why on earth would they do this and then go admit it to the public? How horrifyingly torpid.

Why would people do this ? It's beyond me ! If the craft wasnt stating any obvious signs of threat why shoot at it you uneducated redneck fools , if there is any reason why aliens don't want there presence known is because they are probably scared of public reaction like these two fools shooting at it!

Personal owned fire arms should be banned full stop! But that another issue all together.

I'm so angry I can't explain it!!!!!!! Stupid fools!!!!!!!!

It is ridiculous that they tried to shoot it but I wasn't there so maybe they felt threatened.

So either the thing resists human weapons or the hunters need a larger target.

Maybe when the mothership shows up they can try to shoot that one down.....

Yeah it's pretty stupid to shoot at aircraft, even with a 30.06, because if your aim was impeccable the only aircraft you could expect to hit would be a private Cessna or something, and unless you hit the pilot or gas tank it would have no effect on the aircraft, with a shotgun, don't make me laugh.

According the Mythbusters, a 30.06 bullet fired straight up would go 10,000 feet and take 58 seconds to land. But their experiment model is flawed, and didn't mention if the muzzle velocity was 880 m/sec, or 760 m/sec, so you have that. Of a 58 second flight, about 50 of those seconds would be the bullet's return trip to the ground, which is all they can realistically claim, because they couldn't find the bullets actually fired, so did a drop instead, the bullets penetrated the ground about 2 inches after dropped from 10,000 feet, at terminal velocity of about 100 mph, or 44.7 m/sec.

Better mathematical models suggest a 50 second flight accounting for all possible known factors, and a maximum altitude expected at just over 3,000 meters, which is about 10,000 feet, achieved in ~8 seconds.

The X-47B's normal operating altitude is >40,000 feet, as illustrated in the video.

So stupid yes, to think shots would have any effect, even stupider if you think you will hear anything, stupidest yet is to expect anything from a shotgun shot.

That sounds really scary if it's true WOW! But shooting at it sound pretty dumb and what did they expect a gun to do - that would have been like using a water pistol against something like that.

Ah well guess the Aliens now know we're not very nice people.
Very dumb!

What if it was an advanced military aircraft? Oh, let's kill an Air Force pilot.

Never discharge a firearm into the sky, least of all near populated areas.

If it was an alien craft, the shooters are now candidates for advanced medical tests.

Yeah I like this one, left a post at Youtube


Can't be a UFO ship with any protection ray working or the bullets would have exploded in their guns so the ship suspension forces pulled the bullets past the ship to some unknown altitude and captured above the ship to come down when the ship lands. The bullets might be returned if the anti Tesla agents desire such action.


ED: There are seemingly stricter rules in New Mexico, home of the Von Braun saucers, as
Mr Lyne had his rifle checked by the Sheriff due to a recent firing at a saucer UFO Foo that
was reported.

I know..When i read this i thought the same thing im not sure what it was these 2 men saw but if it was military equipment or alien they were crazy to shoot at the thing ..
If it was one of ours they could have killed someone or alien they could have been all killed we have no idea if aliens are hostile or not ...
They were lucky it did fire back as they were running to get away..thanks for posting..peace,sugarcookie1

I agree, pretty stupid to shoot at any thing you are not trying to kill. Int he guys defense with the shotgun though, the shotgun was loaded with slugs, much more accurate and they have a farther effective range than bird-shot or buckshot.

Suppose these bright hunters were also hunting Big Foot. And if a .30-06 didn`t do anything the chances of the 12 gauge working is no surprise.
Can`t think of why they would be afraid if they had guns anyhow. The big thing if you find yourself in such a spot you feel afraid don`t draw attention to yourself in shooting at them, try hiding next time like this guy.

When I`ve seen UFO`s I was not afraid of them.
Anyhow personally if I was to shoot at one you shoot at the lights at their point when Triangle shape not dead center.

What makes you assume it was Alien? The report says it looked like an x47b Drone... I would expect a lot of rednecks and others are not to happy about our government filling the skies with predator drones spying on "we the people"


Personal owned fire arms should be banned full stop! But that another issue all together.


Better stay out of Nevada then... we still have machine guns.




I'm so angry I can't explain it!!!!!!! Stupid fools!!!!!!!!


Probably a good thing you don't have guns then

I live in Minnesota and these 2 men are from there also im sure the men were out hunting turkeys or something ..Your right im sure they are a couple of redneck fools that got so scared they felt the object had to be fired on ..
My first thought was if the aliens ever do show themselves or we have disclosure how many people would be out there doing the same thing ..What ever this UFO was there seemed to me no threat to them or they would have been wiped off the face of the earth within the first 3 mins of them seeing it..The whole deal was just plain stupid when i read this my first thought was why did you do this ..peace,sugarcookie1

From the recent Clif High Half Past Human post: (LOL)


"I am not a pterodactyl".... A conversation to be soon overheard in the great pacific northwest of the continental "these united states" in north america. The conversation will take place between representatives of officialdom, sub set, 'department of homeland supression', and a local northwestern archetype, the 'woods man'. There are a lot of them around here so we cannot be specific as to which expression of the archetype will actually be involved in the incident, but we are certain it will occur. The cause of the conversation is the (soon to be in the future) recent downing of a 'national suppresion predator drone' on its 'officially designated patrol'. Apparently, as the agents of the DHS are able to determine, 'suspect Able Baker', located in somewhere in the heavily wooded southwest interior of Washington State brought down a predator drone by means unknown and it crashed into a very expensive pile of trash in woods so deep as to be unreceachable in our lifetimes.... Upon interviewing the primary suspect (last house prior to the last reported position of the predator), the agents of officialdom discovered that they had entered a place of deep dark shadows under old growth cedar trees dripping not only moss several yards long, but also a rich moist coating of woo-woo. The following will be soon taken from the to-exist-in-the-future, past official records transcripts. Agent Fred: "Sir, am i to understand you correctly? You are admiting that you shot down the very expensive government drone? Are you certain you understand what crime you are confessing to?". Suspect Able Baker: "Yep, son, I know what I am saying....are you hard of hearing? But no way is this a crime." Agent Fred: "No sir. I hear you just fine..but i just can't believe you admitted to a federal crime..." Suspect Able Baker: "Oh, no son, I didn't commit a crime. Now I grant you that you have reason to see it that way, but was not the case. I have me a batch of that cancer you know." Agent Fred: "ok?? so..." Suspect Able Baker: "so, this being a dispensary state, I been smok'n some righteous weed. In fact, I had been smoking that whole day as the chemo had been the day before. (long wait as suspect exhales) That was the day I shot down the pterodactyl. And I want you, right now, to show me any damn law that says a man can't shoot down a pterodactyl if he has to." Agent Fred: "Sir, you mean the drone, right? You shot down the drone, correct? That is what you are admitting to..." Suspect Able Baker: "Well, sonny, if you want to call that big, white pterodactyl that flew over my house and was gonna # on my property or worse, a drone, you go right ahead. But when I saw it, it was a pterodactyl. That is my story and I am sticking to it. (another long pause as suspect exhales) And I don't think that you boys will be prosecuting me, an old man living out his last days dying of cancer who happens to hallucinate pterodactyls from the damn chemo. So, in my way of thinking, as I send you boys on your way, is that you get back to drone central, and tell them to paint " I am not a pterodactyl, do not shoot me." on them drones...just to be safe. You never can tell what people may see out here in these woods. And the rain and constrant drip makes us all a bit mad, so don't be surprised when occassionally one of us takes out an annoying pterodactyl." Agent Bob (as the agents are leaving): "Sir, just what was it that you used to take down the dro.., er, pterodactyl." Suspect Able Baker (grinning): "Why this slingshot, a Mark 5 SuperSling with wrist protector, (extending the weapon) and these......(suspect holds out a cluster of metal balls)...highly magnetized ball bearings. They work on cupracapras as well as pterodactyls. And you never can tell when I may be seeing a couple of them bastards so you boys better get along now, and don't forget to tell them...." "I am not a pterodactyl..." Status of investigation: Temporarily suspended....

Shooting a rifle at something when you have no idea of its origin, abilities or intentions is really dumb.

Morons with weapons. A recipe for success every time.

Bill Hicks talks about UFOs and the welcoming party[s].

'....People came from miles around to look at them. A lot of people came Armed... Excuse me!.... People are bringing shotguns to UFO sightings?....'




Wondering how many ET's have asked Humanoids "Take me to your Leaders" just before the muzzle blast

I'm sure they felt very threatened and scared this UFO must have been very close to them they mentioned they shot at it with a shotgun with a slug, you can hit stuff out to 100 yards pretty reliably. Further than that gets a little difficult because shotguns are not as accurate as rifles and they used a rife also..
Either way the whole thing was stupid on there part..peace,sugarcookie1
