Why You Don't Play In The Backyard, Part 3,052

Hat tip to Gunscythe...

Victoria, B.C. - An afternoon of backyard target practice with a replica rifle landed a Saanich man in jail on Wednesday.

Saanich police responded to a caller who saw men firing off rounds from what appeared to be an assault rifle at about 4 p.m.

When they arrived to the house in 4000-block of Gerard Pl., near Mackenzie Avenue and Glanford Avenue, officers saw the man with the weapon, which looked real, Saanich police spokesman Sgt. Dean Jantzen said today.

The gun’s metallic body, sight and light gave it the appearance of the police’s own Heckler and Koch G-36 assault rifle. Even the clear magazine casing was full of fake brass bullets.

“Those might be some of the things I would look for if I were to try and make the instantaneous decision whether this is real or not,” Jantzen said.

“Quite rightly, our officers approached with caution and with their firearms, their real firearms, drawn,” he added.
