    Default Cops called for having a gun outside.

    This is going to be a really stupid question, but i was in my backyard cleaning/oiling my rifle today and i have a neighbor that likes to call police on everyone for stupid things. While i was outside stripping the gun he came out and sat on his porch staring. Do I have a right to field strip and clean my firearm in my own backyard? Just in case cops show up next time.

    I believe all the answers you seek are here: http://forum.pafoa.org/pennsylvania-...light=cleaning
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    You have every right to clean your firearm in your back yard. If for some reason the police show up and give you any problems, tell them to get the hell out.
    There's no such thing as a free lunch.

    Tell your neighbor to piss off.
    Same goes for any police responding to a stupid pita neighbor.

    You could probably get yuor neighbor for harrassment and also for calling 911 for a none emergency(sorry cant think of what that would be called at the moment.)

    Yes. If all goes well, the police will soon understand that the neighbor is the problem, not the gun.
    ...and they have a plan...
