1. Cool. If you like this sort of thing, check out "Box O truth" website.

They do lots of this kind of stuff including what it takes to actually shoot a lock off a door as seen so often in the movies, etc.

2. Will do

 

Thanks for the tip. I've had a life long love of shooting and it seems no matter how much I learn there's always more out there to learn.

4. It shows why you should be using

hollow points for your self defense ammo. The goal is to have the bullet dump all its energy in the target and not come out the back and hit an unintended object/person.

5. I know Joe, that's how "gotta have a gun to go outside" folks think. But it's just mind boggling BS.


If there are unintended "objects/people" around, they are more likely to get hit by the gunner's errant shots when they start blasting away than a pass-through.

Besides, it's all preparation for something that is so unlikely to happen that it falls in realm of irrationality.

The two jokers in the video need to get a life, and encourage others to do so as well.

6. The errant shots are solved other ways. (More range time, which is also fun.)

Just because it is an unlikely event does not mean one is irrational in preparing for it.

I agree about the two in the video needing to get a life. As fun as it is to shoot water jugs, there are other things to do on rainy days.

7. Not much on spending my time training to shoot people since this country is not a war zone.

Agree about the couple on video.
