    Don't look for cover behind a trailer!

    I buy and sell all kinds of things, including vintage trailers. While working on a 62 Shasta today i discovered that the hole in the side went out through the roof. It must have been Elmer Fudd and friends drunk around a campfire. Two sheets of aluminum and two sheets of birch panelling probably didn't slow it down much.

    I don't always have nothing to say, but when I do, I post it on Facebook.

    Aluminum only slightly thicker than a beer can is useless for a barricade. The one in the picture appears to be an older model using thicker metal than is used now.

    No, its makes for very POOR "Cover". It makes for fine "Concealment".

    So much for barricading in the specified safe room if you live in a mobile home.

    That looks like a bullet hole to me. If good cover is needed I would recommend something more substantial like a side dumper dump truck.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
