Post subject: A tree fights back
Post Posted: Fri Apr 04, 2014 7:59 pm
Note to self: If you shoot it enough times a tree may try to retaliate.

About 45 years ago my father tacked up a target onto a 6" pine tree and fired 6 rounds from his S&W .44 magnum at it.
He had to go back to the lodge without retrieving his target but returned the next day. He arrived at the spot where he dropped the brass but couldn't see the target in the woods even with a spotting scope. He walked out to where the target had been and found a chest high tree stump and the rest of tree on the ground.

I knew a guy who shot an outhouse more or less in half with a Thompson Submachine Gun some years ago.

Fortunately, there was nobody inside.

(Note to ATF et. al.: I lost contact with this guy in the mid-60's.)
