Me and my son, Jason, were just blasting the hell out of some targets we set up on a pile of trash on the property. We were shooting slugs, and didn't realize a little tree (about 4in diameter) was in the line of fire. It was almost unreal as the tree started slowly leaning and then fell over at a right angle. It was a good rest to set up more targets.

I've done that myself

When I was a loser in high school (as opposed to a loser now) and didn't have a girlfriend or social life next to getting high with some fellow losers, I used to spend a large portion of my Waffle House paycheck buying 12 ga and 7.62 ammo for my NEF single shot shotgun and SKS and would cut down trees. So much fun.

Or you're just obsessed with me. In either case, yes I did get kicked off the range, but no I didn't cut the tree down. It was going, though. I had range and deflection and was putting bursts on target. I made the mistake of shooting when everyone else was reloading, though. That's how I got caught. And I was firing into another lane. Fuck 'em if they can't take a joke.

Oh yeah, and Nitris, GO FUCK YOURSELF!!! How's tricks? That's my pet name for your dog. He does some sexy little tricks.

My .22 is 7 +1 and my .410 is done for till I fix another pin which I doubt as I think its a better wall hanger. My 12 gauge can take down tree's ya know. Oh and if I want to waste ammo my .45 can take a tree down also...but I dont like to waste bullets.

Howdy, glad to make your aquaintence. I have seen a tree about the same size as the one in those pics taken down in about 5 shots from a .410. I agree that a .22 takes a bit longer as they generally won't penetrate far enough when starting out. But 5 well placed rounds with a .410 will work. That was a lesson that I will NEVER forget. That was what taught me what a gun will REALLY do!

Holy shit, sam's back?

Jesus, old man. About time. Raper, I don't like the avatar. You're dumb. Now change it or I shall taunt you a second time.
