Real Ghost Stories

The Shotgun Guy

 

If you've read my other story it says something about 'The Shotgun Guy'. Well, I thought I'd explain it a little. Growing up I've always been able to sense stuff. I could sense when something was around me. Never could any of my friends, so when I was young I did learn I was a bit diffrent. But ever since my 13th birthday have I sensed The Shotgun Guy.

I suppose I should first explain what he looks like, so you can kind of imagine what I sense. He wears a brown flannel shirt, with blue trousers. He wears a hat so I can't exactly see what his hair color is. But the guy is around his 40s. He also carries a shotgun with him (Hence the name 'The Shotgun Guy'.).

Around where I live there is an old broken-down house. Holes in the roof, doors broken, windows broken or just completly gone, etc. I believe, no, I just know that he used to live there. I also know how The Shotgun Guy died. Behind our house is a little riverbed. A lot of people go there to hunt. That's how I believe he died. A hunting accident. Shot by his hunting buddy. Maybe that's why he doesn't want to pass on. Maybe he didn't feel like he lived a long enough life.

It's hard for me to explain how I know this. It's not like I've ever talked to him. But I just know. And I know I'm not paranoid, because it's never just him I sense. I've sensed other ghosts (or what ever you want to call them). But for some reason, I've never known anything about them. Only until I sensed The Shotgun Guy have I been sensing not just him, but a lot of ghosts.

I know he's not evil, I can just sense it. He lives in our front yard, or at least he's there a lot. Whenever I'm home alone I'll sense him in our backyard. He's always walking back and forth from our sliding glass window. Which scares me a bit because I'm always right next to our sliding glass window, on the computer. But not only do I sense him, when I'm on the computer looking at the screen, in the corner of my eye I'll see a shadow quickly pass by. I don't see him exactly, but I see some type of shadowy figure.

I've tried talking to my brother about this, but he just seems to ignore it or laugh in my face. Which is annoying. But he's never sensed The Shotgun Guy, only me. So now when I sense stuff I keep it from my family, because I'm afraid they might think I'm some freak.

I don't know why he's always outside. And I don't believe I've ever sensed him inside. But it's only at my house do I sense him. How weird is that? But do you think I'm just paranoid? Or do you think what I sense is real? I believe it's real. And I don't just want to ignore it, because The Shotgun Guy may just want to be remembered and never forgotten, or maybe he guards the house (would explain why no one has yet to ever break in), or maybe he's just trying to show himself to me because he knows I can sense him. All I know is that I'm at a total loss as to why I can sense him.

And one more thing, you may be a little confused as to why I say 'sense' instead of 'see'. But I've never exactly 'seen' him. I haven't seen him like I'm able to see other people. I can sense what he looks like and sense other stuff about him. I have seen small images of him. So I really don't think it's just me being paranoid.

If you have any ideas as to why I'm sensing him, please, I'll listen to everything. Or if you just think I'm paranoid, well that's okay too, everyones allowed to think what they wish.

hi!
You might be a medium, or a mediator (is there a difference?) talk to a priest or someone from the church or someone you can talk to about this stuff, maybe from your own religion? I know that might be confusing
But point is, talk to someone who's a major or knows A LOT about this subject. They will help you understand a LOT better about what's going on and what exactly are you (if you are or have a special ability that is)
Tc!

IBelieve,

well, the house has been broken-down for quite awhile. I doubt it would go down with me in it. Hahaha. But I'm not aloud there. It WOULD be trespassing. But that would only make it more interesting😉. Hehehe. But if me parents would be SO mad if I got caught. Don't feel taking that type of gamble, hahaha. But I will try something. I might talk to Kelly (my friend) about The Shotgun Guy. Haha. It'd just feel so good to beable to talk to a friend without them thinking I'm some type of freak. Well. I guess I could do that on HERE. Huh? Hahaha. But thankies!

Hey again GhostGal,
Can you get to the old house you think he came from. Maybe you can try going there. Again maybe I shouldn't suggest that to a 13 year old (don't go getting in trouble for tresspassing lol) I wouldn't go in the house due to it's condition but maybe you could get more from him there
You can also try the internet to look up the accident if you haven't tried already.
Keep us posted

Shada,

No. The house is only 7-9 years old. Not very old. And I live somewhat in the country. Its definetly NOT the city. Its a small town. Like, not even a grocery store or a gas station. Thats how small it is, haha. He may be a guardian, maybe he just likes the house, haha. Maybe he wants to chat. I have no clue. But thanks for the opinion!

rhodes68,

Yeah. Thats it, but HIS head is never turned, he's always staring at me. And I can somewhat see his face and stuff. Like I can see his eyes. But its HIS choice, I know, that probably sounds weird. Like if I WANT to see him, I wont. But when I least expect it, I'll get a quick glimpse. I want to communicate with him. And I think he wants the same. But its hard, like ill try focusing but my dogs make SO much noise I cant. And I can only sense him at my house, haha. Thanks for your opinion!
Also, sorry it took me awhile to reply to ya'lls comments. I forgot I posted this story, then I remember, so I try looking for it and I couldn't find it, haha!

ChrisB,

I know. Infact, I believe no one in my family ever been able to sence stuff. But I don't know about my grandparents from ym farthers side, I never met/knew them. SO maybe its just a trait I got form them. Haha.
Its a little weird. The Shotgun Guy got his own groove, haha. Like last week I senced he was there like everyday. But this week I've barely senced him. Thats how its been for awhile. Ill sence him then hes gone, Ill sence him then hes gone. Its weird. It just goes back and forth, haha. But thanks for the opinion, and ill try looking up the stuff I need!

Sunmoon,

Hmmm, help him pass on? WOW. Help a 40yr. Old hunter pass on. That has a little pressure to it for a 13 year old, hahaha.
Yes, thank you! I was trying to figure out the word. So it's MEDIUM! Thank you! It was bugging me so badly, haha. But I have no clue how to communicate with him. Any suggestions?

FRAWIN,

I understand you being confused. I somewhat confused myself, too, haha. But what I mean is that I haven't exactly seen him like how people can see ghosts just as well as living people. But I do see small images of him. But I don't consider "images" as "seeing". I know, my explaining SUCKS! SOrry, haha. I hope you understand it now. If not, I'll try explaining it better.

IBelieve,

Well, I can sense them. And if I ever 'see' them, it'd usually just be quick images.
No, I haven't talk to my parents. I don't want to. They aren't as understanding as people here.
I will try looking up the history. But I don't know of the library has anything like that. We have a small, small library.
Thanks for your opinion! God bless!

GhostGal, you're not alone. I cannot SEE but have an uncanny sense of what spiritual things look like. Its hard to describe. I just have a couple questions.
Is your house older? Is it in the country or the city?
It sounds like it could be a residual haunting or an odd sort of guardian. He might walk between the glass door when your there because he may think it as a defensive weakness. Just throwing some ideas out. Keep up the writings.

I think I understand what you're saying. You get quick glimpses of him without being able to discern his facial features but there's a mental picture of him which allows you to know what he looks like even when his head is turned the other way, right? It's as if you know him without actually having looked at him.

Trust your feelings. Just close your eyes and picture him. Try to focus for as long as you can and "sense" what he's telling you.

I know some people who will read this comment might think I'm crazy but I know the feeling you're describing.

Just open up yourself to let in whatever feeling needs to be communicated.

GhostGal.I believe you are a little confused with this situation. I'm not surprised. You sence but you can never see him. Well honestly that usually happens when there is a haunting. Not everyday does a spirit show himsef in a haunted home. So I think in time you might get a glimpse of him. I think doing what IBelieve suggested is the best thing. Try finding all the information you can about him. The more you know the better. I think you shouldnt be worried that know one believes you. It happens often. But it is an ability not all have so you should be proud of it. I hope you do find what you are looking for. I hope to hear from you soon and take care

GhostGal'

I believe that you sence him because, yes you have some psychic ability. You are known as what they call a Medium. You can't see the images phisically, but you can mentally. This is a wonderful gift and it can also be scary. If you sence he's not harmful then yes he sences that you are a Medium and maybe he wants to communicate with you about something. Maybe you are the only one that can help him pass on and that's why he keeps visiting you to try to catch your attention. You have a great gift and in order to control it (cuz you can) look it up, read about it or find people that can help you develope your wonderful ability. My saggetion is to try to see what he wants, communicate with him. 😉

GhostGal,I'm not being critical but your next to the last paragraph has me confused. At first you say you have never "seen" him just sensed him and then you say you have seen small images of him. Could you explain what you mean by small images? I personally don't think you are paranoid, it sounds as if you have a high degree of psychic ability and may not be aware of it.

If you can sense and see others I don't think your just paranoid. You should go to the local library or historian and ask about, or look up local hunting accidents to see if you can find him. That might give you the answers that you need.
As for feeling like a freak DON'T! Don't give youself a negative outlook because your brother doesn't understand.
Did you talk to your parents or just your brother?
Also I see you have 66 post, if you have read anybody elses comments you'll see that most of the people here are very understanding and will try to help and give their honest opinions
