I can recall as a kid seeing lots of bullet hole ridden traffic signs, and I grew up in California. Yet here in Texas I have yet to see one.

right outside of my range there is a sign ridden with bullet holes

I don't shoot traffic signs because I don't want my government using my tax money to pay for bullshit like that.

Am I the only weirdo who thinks bullet hole ridden traffic signs are cool? Anyone here shoot up traffic signs?



you cant get more than 2 miles out of any town around here without seeing a sign full of holes ....
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 12:48:41 PM EST
The only shot up ones I've seen are those that are in bumfuck nowhere.

There's a stop sign near my house that has 12 gauge slug holes in it. Pretty impressive.

Every traffic sign on the outskirts of Ft. Knox is riddled with 7.62mm and .50 cal holes.

There was a guy who posted here that did ---- he was way funny to read . He has been banned.

The ones that I think are the coolest, are the animal x-ing signs with a single bullet hole right through the vitals.

The people that do that types of stuff are bumfuks, but to see the signs on a nice sunny day makes me feel like going to the range!
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 12:56:51 PM EST
What about those no shooting signs that are riddled with holes?

I've seen more than a few shot up signs in Swope & Blue River Park (KCMO), not exactly the boonies.

NOT COOL AT ALL!

In some of the rural areas the signs have bullet holes. Mostly .22s. It pisses me off to know that my tax dollars will have to replace them. It also gives the gun grabbers ammo to use against us to the general public.

when the sunlight hits them just right..., I tell you it's a piece of art.

Traffic signs with bullet holes are comon in Michigan. My brother, before he went to prison, used to cruise around town on Friday nights, shooting street lights and signs with whatever handgun he had stolen that week.

Shot up signs are part of the landscape around here. If a sign has no hole... by God someone will come along soon and make one.

What I always wonder is how many times some dumbshit shot up a sign in a residential area and struck someone's car, windows, a person, etc. No one thinks about where the bullet is going AFTER it hits the sign.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 2:48:12 PM EST
Lots of them in eastern NC.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 3:01:43 PM EST
In Oregon there are no bullet holes in the signs close to Portland.
As you move away from Portland the number of holes increases.
As you move East, the size of the holes increases.

In Alabama I can't remember seeing a sign without holes in it. It took about 6 weeks of living in NJ to finally realize that the signs were not supposed to have holes in them.

My dumb ass buddy just went out last weekend and shot like 20 at close range with his new 870. That retard, it is a felony to do that.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 3:11:04 PM EST
shooting signs looks bad for all gun owners
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 3:23:53 PM EST
have you ever gotten such a good pattern in a sign that you just decided to go ahead and steal it too???





Link Posted: 10/13/2004 6:59:20 PM EST
I fucking hate that shit .
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 7:46:56 PM EST
I have never stood and shot at a road sign, and ONE TIME I made the mistake of shooting a .38 at one from a moving vehicle.

ALL the burnt but still real hot powder and gasses came back right into my face. I was blinded for about 10 minutes.

NEVER will I do that again.

I see them a lot up in rural North Dakota
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 7:54:12 PM EST
Just come to NC. Depending on where you go, road signs without bullet holes are the exception.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 8:00:02 PM EST
I live in south Alabama and it is a common thing to see. I have never done it before but I know people that have. I have stolen a sign when I was about 15....and yup you guessed it.......it was mile marker 69. I have grown so used to it it really doesnt bother me anymore.

I will post some pics this weekend.
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 8:02:00 PM EST
I would say that 50% of the signs in this county have at least one bullet hole in them. Some are more rusted than any other color, from being shot up. People also like to drive around and run over mail boxes, hit them with bats, and blow them up.

Just found this lol. kind of off topic but stil funny

The only sign I've ever seen with bullet holes in it was a sign to the entrace of a Target department store.

How ironic.

I live in RURAL Alabama - "holey" signs are definitely the norm...
Link Posted: 10/13/2004 8:46:23 PM EST
In Alaska shooting a sign is not the sport, apparently it's who can make the biggest hole (even women carry 44's).

It may be a myth, but I thought I remember something about Nevada. It was costing so much to replace the signs, many of which were shot as soon as they were put up, that at one time they began to place a "bullseye" target sign beneath them figuring that if you were going to shoot at the sign, at least keep your shots on the target sign instead. Kind of the same psychology as the urinal "targets" to entice whizzers to hit the mark instead of hosing down the fixture.

Holy cow! No wonder the sheeple are scared of "sporting enthusiasts", I have to agree with the previous posts, Total fodder for the anti-gunners.

How many do you want?

Shot up, beat up, bent up, ran over...you name it.

Ones we can never find?

There is a good bunch of them shot up here in UT. Not worth losing your 2nd Amendment rights over...
Link Posted: 10/14/2004 9:14:35 PM EST
A sure sign that there are not enough guns in an area is a sign with out bullet holes in it. Of course they may just have not gotten around to that sign yet.
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 1:47:18 AM EST
Come to Hawaii, you can drive forever and not one sign has a hole in it ever. But when I traveled around the big US I did see the signs all over with holes and was a bit scared that people were taking shots at the signs from their cars. Not a nice thing to do.
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 1:55:47 AM EST
All over north MN. there are shot up signs. Not a good practice. Someone will get hurt sooner or later.
Makes us all look bad.
Link Posted: 10/15/2004 3:13:14 AM EST
Hell, even the huge overhead interstate signs here have holes in them. I did pass a surface street sign the other week that had a really nice tight pattern on it. I am sure the guy was sitting next to the sign though.

I have yet to see a single bullet hole on a sign here on Long Island. All we get are the stupid "Eating Animals" stickers stuck to Stop signs.

A buddy of mine and I were heading to a range southwest of Austin that we hadn't been to before at the time (Hill Country RR... way down off of Hamilton Pool Road). Well, we got on the road it is off of, and it's about 7 miles down. He was driving, so I'm in the passenger seat. He asks if we're almost there yet, kinda sarcastically. I said "we must be getting close! There are more and more bullet holes in all the street signs!"

No I've never shot at or stolen a street sign. I used to see it all the time in MD and like some her I though the "new" ones w/o holes were neat because they were so rare. It was just a part of life I guess. On a recent hunting trip to IL (beautiful state BTW) I noticed that a lot of people had posted "No hunting/No tresspassing" signs on their 15' strip of land between the road and the national forrests, every single one of them had been shot to shit.



Whatever happened to the vdot employees who screwed the pooch with the midtown tunnel here in Norfolk?

My hunting buddies brother got a new to him 7mm mag from a sign shooter. At the time my buddies bro drove a green Dodge Ram like the MI conservation officers drive. He crested a hill on a very rural road where a couple teens were shooting a sign in the distance. He saw them throw something in the ditch and take off at high speed. He of course realised they thought he was a C.O. and followed them for a while. He broke off the chase and went back to where they had been and what do you know, a 7mm Mag was in the weeds in the ditch. Someone had some explaining to do to their dad.
