Here I was thinking I don't have any pictures of bullet holes, until now when I processed a picture for another thread and realized that there are bullet holes in that sign!
So here is my humble effort.

Or is that just salt-rot?
Please show Scandinavian bullet holes. I'm curious to compare clustering.🧿🔫🎯🔫

I'm a newbie so I must leave this to an EXPERT. Harvey, does premature withdrawal qualify? Cross posted.

Only one hole and that seems to be drilled!
What is that, a 5mm angle steel bar? I would think only a very high calibre rifle or a high speed rifle can penetrate that!

Scandinavian bullet holes are always tight together, we pride us in making every shot count!

Personally I always go for the body shot, leaving the head shot to the prima-donnas or show-offs. 😎 (On the target range of course, no live targets for me.)

As I said earlier, bullet-holes are only seen in the emergency room in Sweden. (Or the target range, but holes in paper isn't interesting I think.)

I am not a proponent of recreational shooting of signs or stuff like that, nor a gun rights advocate. So, please don't interpret this post as supporting those. But, here are some historic bullet holes from the Pearl Harbor attack in Hanger 79 on Ford Island, part of the Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum.

Bullet holes left by strafing Japanese aircraft on Dec. 7, 1941. It's on the Historic Register so these can't be repaired.

@Holoholo55 I would think that all the "perps" in this thread are only responsible for the photos of the bullet holes, not the holes themselves. ;)
I didn't say they were responsible for the holes. Just saying that my posting photos of bullet holes of historical interest does not imply that I endorse shooting at various and sundry objects. I've seen plenty of signs with bullet holes on the Big Island where hunting is popular. :)

That barrel has been used for target practice more than once.

Maybe air rifle pellets also qualifies?
