Photo: Groundbreaking for Astrodome was done with guns rather than shovels

While most opt to go the more traditional route with shovels when it comes to groundbreaking, Texas officials who were on hand for the groundbreaking of the Astrodome decided to use guns, instead.

Given the state's noted affection for guns, coupled with the fact that the Astros were known as the Houston Colt .45s at the time, this photo really shouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

However, it's still a surreal scene for today's society who continues to bicker over gun control laws and such.
