Bulletproof Roof

While replacing a valley on the Residence of one of our clients, we discovered a neatly punched hole in the slate near the area under restoration. Upon removing the slates we found a .45 caliber bullet, resting unembedded on top of the roof deck sheathing.

The round had passed through three slate but lost enough energy in the process that it did not penetrate the roof deck..... or.... enter their house! Note the rifling marks visible on the bullet in the photo below right.
