Certainly something to put into the 'memory banks'...could save someone else some construction bucks.
Glad your neighbor was understanding.

Either way lesson learned. I did try out some magsafe .40 rounds .vs a cantaloupe and two phone books taped together. The amount of damage they do is insane. I'll see about doing a review or something in a thread in a different area. Sadly I forgot to take pics or video.
for all the rounds i've put down range and been there when others did--the list of odd things is quite long
and apperantly still growing.
another vote on your manning up and fixing up.
Be awear, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.
Why do those elected to positions of power than work so hard
to deny those same opportunities to the same people who empowered them
To the OP. Thanks for sharing. Information like this always helps....

Quick update. Talked to my buddy today on my lunch break. Happened to catch him when he came in for his shift. He went to his neighbors house to make sure we were all cool Sunday after church. The guy said not to worry about fixing anything they are just going to hang a picture over where the round penetrated. He said we are good though and that it was a lesson learned on both sides.
