I've recently been told that I am unsafe and an idiot, for joking about
using a .22 gage rifle, to shoot holes in the guard rail. I'm thinking
someone will need to comment on using a 308 gage shotgun, to make holes. Are
those bigger than a .22 gage rifle?

30-06, 308, or similar rifle round will make a nice clean hole.
Better to be stuck up in a tree than tied to one.

Woo hoo! The TITANIUM coated drill bit was the trick!
It drilled through the guard rail in a matter of 30 seconds!
Here's a shot of the now-attached garbage can.
Here's a closeup picture:
And, here's the inside of the garbage can (without plastic bag):
Thanks everyone for all the advice!
- I used your idea of using the U bolt to make it not dangerous to
vehicles or people
- I used your idea of using a titanium coated drill bit
- I used your advice of drilling a smaller hole first
- I used your advice of making it not dangerous to vehicles
I love you guys!

Well, I guess if it were a steel garbage can, I could have welded it to
the guardrail. That would be interesting. Or I could have chained it.
If I want to put a top on it, I can chain the top handle to the U-bolt to
keep it from being flung over the cliff by the bad-ass litterers.
