Italian term or phrase: Io sparo un sacco di minchiate e quella me la da.
Hi,I have a question regarding the Italian tv series Il Cacciatore.
They've arrested someone with mafia ties, with his weapon.
His reaction is:


Non c’è niente da raccontare. Io sparo un sacco di minchiate e quella me la da. Mi pare che funziona no?

What does he mean by 'Io sparo un sacco di minchiate e quella me la da'? That he likes to shoot?

For more context, see below:

MAZZA E magari l’analisi balistica ci racconterà qualcosa d’interessante. Mh? Abbiamo un sacco di omicidi ancora in cerca di un papà, lo sa sì?

BARBAGALLO Non c’è niente da raccontare. Io sparo un sacco di minchiate e quella me la da. Mi pare che funziona no?

SAVERIO Minchia se funziona. Funziona alla grandissima. Così bene che se ne sta ammanettato alla scrivania di una caserma. (RIS)

Thanks!

I just tell her a load of bullshit and she's willing
Explanation:
I agree with shabelula and would have little doubt about the intended meaning...

Or she comes to bed with me
Or many other variations...

Depends how crude you want to be.

The following exchange is sarcastic and the guy is saying "well it's worked so well that the woman shopped you and you are here!
