    Does anyone have any links to examples of the sintage "tin" art where shooters used .22s to shoot out pictures in pieces of tin? I believe this used to be an old carnival type event.

    TIA

    Go to Google and do a search on "Ad Topperwein". You should find some info on and pictures of his "tin" art.

    Ed McGivern also has a section in his book 'Fast and Fancy Revolver Shooting' on tin art.

    The Nashua Fish and Game range house has one. It's a profile of a Native American with headdress. Sorry, I don't have a pic

    There used to be a video on this kind of shooting. The ad ran in the Shotgun News in the early '90s [old geezer voice] "when all of this was an orchard."

    Remember, the ad had the guys with the slide-action Winchester and the Indian chief's head?
