Pot shots on fixtures today? « on: February 17, 2019, 04:33:32 PM » Author: lights*plus
I was wondering, in the last few years, when collecting or just observing out there, are people finding bullet holes on lanterns nowadays?

Here's an extreme example from the olden days: https://www.ebay.com/itm/273680528626

Do you think the pellet holes were done recently? Got it up on your gallery? I'd like to see it.

Out in the rural areas, it can sometimes be a common thing.  Kids/stupid adults get bored and drunk and go out and do stupid things.

Or kids/adults try to take out annoying streetlights that shine too brightly into their house or yard.  BB gun shots are the most common.

pic is avail in "my lights" album in my gallery, look for "M-400 with swiss cheese refractor. I'd guess the holes have been there awhile, these lights haven't been used in at least 25yrs!
