Indian Chief Target

#1 Post by horsesoldier03 » Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:21 pm

It has been a while but I recall a photo of the portrait of an Indian Chief being shot into a sheet of tin with a .22 LR. Cant recall who did it, but I think it has been discussed here in years past. I have GOOGLE FOO'd it to death and can't find what I am looking for. Any assistance would be appreciated.

I have seen some when I was young shot by Ad Topperwine, He shot for Winchester. There were probably other shooter too.

Afew years ago there was a company that made targets you could shoot that had a paper picture of several different patterns that you could shoot one of which was the indian. After you shot the target you peeled away the paper and you were left with tin target you had shot.
