Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, outdoorsmen of all ages; please take off your hats and stand for the playing of our national anthem.
Some musicians can be outdoorsmen, but when outdoorsmen are musicians, magic can happen.
Take for example this patriotic tribute to the stars and stripes by a target shooter using his rifle as his instrument.
These special plates for target shooting resonate at certain tones when hit. Full songs can be constructed, and in this specific case, our national anthem.

Will these types of musical targets start showing up more and more at gun ranges across the country?
If I could play some good ‘ole Waylon Jennings or maybe break down some of the Red Headed Stranger with my target guns, then I could be on board!
