At least that’s the impression one gets from this photo, which one of my neighbors snapped at the entrance to the Woodbridge subdivision, positioned east of the Forest-Audelia intersection in northern Lake Highlands.
There’s a bit of disagreement as to whether these are actual shotgun or pistol-produced bullet holes, or if they come from some sort of BB or pellet gun.
I asked the man who used to take kid-me to a ranch to shoot at metal signs and bottles and the occasional dove (my dad) what he thinks might have made the holes, to which he responded “probably a .22 or a shotgun”. Comforting.
As a few of my neighbors have noted, it doesn’t really matter. The sign is a few feet removed from a family’s home, so it’s unsettling either way.
