Mensagem:  Hi guys,

I am having problems to grasp the meaning of "capital shooting" in the following extract taken from the short story "An uncomfortable bed."

    When I arrived, they gave me a princely reception, which at once aroused distrust in my breast. We had some capital shooting. They embraced me, they cajoled me, as if they expected to have great fun at my expense.

Can you guys help me out?

Thanks in advance.
