I was shot with a paintball gun while riding about 1.5 years back. Alas, I was unable to get a license plate or anything like that, so the police took my report, and offered to come take pictures of my wound, but they couldn't really do anything more than that. In their defence, they took it very seriously.
I still look for that car when I'm riding in the neighborhood. It's a long shot -- if I haven't seen it by now, I probably never will -- but hope springs eternal and all that.
(This was in Austin, TX -- in a pretty good part of town. Usually pretty nice for a midnight ride, but there's a few bad apples.)
