Yes, it is sad, but perfectly understandable. Bullet holes in $30,000 compressors would piss me off too. As Ige stated in Mike's mailbox post, "People suck!" and I agree. What is the mentality of someone with a gun deciding that something needs holes in it? Seriously, I'd like to hear some of the knowledgeable gun owners here on the list discuss it some. I couldn't believe my eyes when we stopped at Newspaper Rock on the last Saturday of Cruise Moab this year. There were numerous new bullet holes in the rock and it was obvious people were shooting at the deer and water symbols that look like bullseyes. Totally idiotic and comparing this year's pictures with those we took in 2003 it was clear they were all new in the last three years. Creating trail closures by wheeling irresponsibly is one thing but shooting holes in history is unfathomable to me.
