Upon arriving at the Kingsland municipal building early Tuesday, the city's water office manager Betty Graham discovered that a hole had been shot through the adjacently located water tower tank. But it does not appear to be a random shot as the precise location of the bullet hole makes it appear that the image of the Man in Black is relieving himself.

Yeah, she climbed up there and investigated. I wouldn't be surprised of some kids with a cordless drill made a strategic hole.

IDK, I imagine you could drill and tap for a pipe plug. The metal is probably plenty thick and the diameter can't be that large.

I would agree to that. That isn't a small hole judging from the amount of water spewing out and that metal isn't thin enough for most guns to penetrate. If you have one that can, then shooting it from the ground will still result in a small dent and a ricochet bullet.

iagree up You are correct bow
Unless it is a 50 Caliper military round or .338 Lapua (SP?) with armor piercing rounds scope Depending on the metal thickness and material used in the building of the tank work

I'm not buying it was shot either. The shot would have to be almost square on to penetrate the steel with any normal bullet. An armor piercing round may be a different story, but it looks like a big stream Johnny is pi$$ing out though.

If this was in the unmoderated area I would say a few things I can't say here, but yes, I doubt it was shot...
