I ONLY hunt curb strips at night. In 2 years, only one incident involving police. And they couldn't even find me, not that I was hiding or anything. I just wait until midnight or later to go out. In my little town everything closes at 9 and most people are in bed by 11.

I ONLY hunt curb strips at night to avoid asshats like him. I live in a small town so there aren't many people walking around at midnight.

Some people have nothing better to do than manufacture drama.

Eggs are more fun. And peanut butter on the windshield, sandpaper under the wipers, sugar in the gas tank, a potato in the exhaust, etc..

Love the Mrs Doubtfire reference!! Yeah...I am guilty of several unsolved driveby fruitings committed in the 70's! ..

Ya see, I'm left handed, which makes it very easy for me to drive a motor vehicle and also throw an object, with great velocity and accuracy, from the drivers seat of an internal combustion moving platform..I can even hook shot it over the roof and take out a hitchhiking Hippy or a guy on the sidewalk, so that makes me a double threat........

Apples, peaches, zucchinis, tomatoes, pears, just about any old and fruit/veg will work..ballistics changed with the seasons....

See what we did was, we would load up with some garden armaments, and go riding around looking for targets of opportunity,..Random acts of Fruiting...

This was well before the Internet mind you, plus, there were only like 3 TV stations, so in the Mid 70's a guy had about nothing to entertain himself with and had to make their own kind of fun! I believe gas was about 35c/gal...a non issue, cruising around looking for Hippies, and other targets of opportunity to strafe with some fruit was a common thing to do back then...

..Then, one Summer, we started throwing 5lb bags of flour at the neighboring town kids cars cruising around in OUR town trying to get our chicks!! A full bag of flour launched into another moving car thats approaching you on the cruise strip? You dont have to put any speed on it, you just sort of time it right and lob it right into their open window! You try to hit the door post so half the bag goes inside of course...

Boom! Oh man is that a beautiful sight! Billowing out and everybody inside covered in flour? Theres about nothing they can do about it either! Whole damn car is full of flour, and everybody inside coated like a sugar donut!

I always keep an apple in the car even now a days in case a target of opportunity presents itself and deserves a good drive by fruiting...

Maybe I should keep a bag of flour handy? Theres this one guy at the Old Folks community place where I live, he drives a fancy pants Mercedes convertible, always showing off, dressed to the nines and thinks he's better than me! trying to pick up my chicks?! I'll give that Tard the royal MudPup dusting!

How much is a 5lb bag of flour selling for nowadays? Probably about nothing right?..I hate to waste money...I suppose talcum powder will work too...I probably have some of that around here...I know I got some Gold Bond around here...for the diaper rash and foot fungus that comes with old age..., and toothpaste/denture cleaner of course.......

Besides the ambulatory guy with the Mercedes, Theres another old guy here who needs a good fruiting! He's rolling in a custom Hoveround, Candy apple red, custom wheels, jacked up an inch and bouncing on 8's...dual batt pack for long range cruising, handlebar ribbons and a thumb bell! leather vest, 1%er, complete frigging showoff! I think a nice soft peach is in order!...
