There has been lots of high wind and tornadoes all across the South Eastern US this past week. Here is what a gun club member found North of Denton TX while cleaning up after Monday night's storm. Almost 4 inches of the barrel is inside the tree. Looks like the gun faired better than the tree.

Thats tough but I don't know if it will ever see the field again. Most likely a very interesting decoration for a den or display. Incredible!

I did ask him how much he wanted for the gun. I figure a new barrel and stock and it will be good to go.

Chop it, make it a trunk gun.

That's one of the top 10 strangest things I've EVER seen.

Ooch, Dimitri! What is the story behind that one? Doesn't look like Mother Nature cause the issue.
