It’s been awhile since our infamously fascinating backyard has given up another tidbit of its mystery/history,  but today’s find marks one of the more intriguing in that I’m fairly certain during a long overdue raking session this morning I unearthed the above-pictured hunk of lead whose size and shape seems indicative of a bullet and whose damaged point leads me to believe it was fired. As in from a gun.

Being nothing of a ballistician I can only guess at the caliber of the projectile. A .38 or .357 mayhaps?

But the bigger question is what might have prompted its launch and at what or whom was it fired?
