What would happen if you shot certain decking species with a .22, .38, 9mm, or even a .50 Caliber Desert Eagle? As you can see, the owner of AdvantageLumber.com was curious, too. So, we went to a private range in Florida to find out.

So stay tuned...in January, we will be unveiling the results of our tests!
