No, I just shoot at other people's Airstreams! I'd never use my own for target practice...

Sorry... going to my room now...

Transverse pucture of projecties on Airstream

Has anyone tested the penetration quality of a .45 ACP at the longitudinal axis of any Airstream above the frame rails?

There's something about the smell of Hoppe's No. 9 that the ladies just LOVE! In fact, most of 'em I know would rather have Hoppe's around than Chanel #5!

Hey, and welcome aboard Gunner... What kind of Airstream do you have? Update your profile for us, willya?

Reminds me of a trailer I looked at, and ran away from. I noticed that the shower has several of those no slip stick on flowers stuck on the wall, none on the floor. I later noticed 3 bullet holes in the outer skin at the shower area. The owner never noticed them before. Looked like a 22.
