    What could cause this?
    Also, I don't know if it's related, but I did have a body shop repaint this pannel 5 months ago from another car scrapping its mirror against it.

    The scar is pointing up (or down), weird angle for a bb gun. Either way, guess I get to visit some body shops on Monday.

    Is my truck bullet proof?

    Maybe, just be stoked that whatever it was didn't do some serious harm on the inside...

    Touch up paint + a couple hours perfecting an epic battle story is a cheap fix.

    I vote lawn mower when you were going down the road. I've put stones through vinyl siding at 40+ yards, so that dimple from a lawn mower across the left lane isn't out of the realm of possibility. An 18"+ dia. blade spinning over 3000 rpm can give a real fierce kick. That's what, around 250 fps or more at the tips?
