When I was in my teens, we lived just inside city limits. We had a major ground hog problem, and so we were using CBs or Aguila low speed, low noise bullets out of a .22 bolt gun. It was doing a decent job out to 10-15 yds with a well placed shot. We would just open the top half of a double hung sliding window and it was the perfect height for a rest. One day my mom called to me that the biggest ground hog was out of its hole and to come quick. I grabbed the rifle, inserted the magazine without checking, chambered a round, lined up on the ground hog and squeezed. I was expecting a muted Putt, but what I had loaded was .22 1200+ fps varmint rounds. Scared the day lights out of me.

A couple years later my dad was installing vinyl siding over block walls and was using a .25cal Hilti nailer to install firring strips to attach the siding to. We had cops cruising up and down our road checking out "gunshots".
