You Know You’re A Gun Nerd When . . . You Want to Shoot the New iPhone 5 (Turned Sideways) with a Tokarev TT-30 by Robert Farago | Sep 13, 2012 | 20 comments facebook twitter linkedin email comments SkyMan77 says: September 13, 2012 at 17:25 If you do please be sure to get that on a high speed camera… I know people that would love to see that thing split in two with a well placed bullet. The MAC / PC wars are still alive and well but now that we’re all running the same CPU can’t we all just get along… 🙂 Reply AnotherMatt says: September 13, 2012 at 18:01 I’m sure Apple has a patent on that. Reply RIGHT! says: September 13, 2012 at 18:05 well I now know I’m not a nerd Reply Accur81 says: September 13, 2012 at 18:24 If y’all could wait to pre-order your black 64 GB iPhone 5 until I’ve ordered mine, well, that would be super. Thanks, I owe you one! Reply Totenglocke says: September 13, 2012 at 19:26 But….why would you want a phone that’s not even for sale yet and is already considered outdated compared to phones that have been on the market for months? Reply Mr. Bob says: September 13, 2012 at 21:13 My 1 year old Samsung Galaxy II still kicks iPhone 5’s butt. Reply phillip says: September 28, 2012 at 05:48 In what, not any standard benchmarks. The iphone 5 has a better screen, cpu, gpu, design, data speed and app store then your phone. If you can find something your phone is better at let us know, lol. Mr. Lion says: September 13, 2012 at 21:46 Probably for the same reason I’m ordering mine Friday: It works better than anything else out there. By a very wide margin. Reply Totenglocke says: September 14, 2012 at 01:57 Considering that Apple fanboys refuse to try anything else, how would you know? I know one person who switched from Android to iPhone – myself and many others I know switched from iPhone to the vastly superior Android. Apple knows that their products are inferior, hence why they keep suing and trying to ban competition instead of innovating and making a better product. Sean says: September 13, 2012 at 19:03 No, don’t own a Tokarev. There is a CZ-52 in the safe however. Reply jwm says: September 13, 2012 at 19:14 Shot up a cell phone with a pellet rifle once, does that count? Also busted up a tv with a shotgun. Reply Blake says: September 13, 2012 at 20:19 I’d rather holler “Pull” and see if I could obliterate the device with some #4. Reply Mr. Bob says: September 14, 2012 at 08:27 +1 Reply Greg Camp says: September 13, 2012 at 23:11 These days, I’m longing for the old rotary phones that I grew up with… I too would use a CZ vz. 52, if I didn’t feel like blasting the infernal machine with a 7.62 x 54R round. Reply JB says: September 14, 2012 at 02:29 You know your a gun nerd… when you find out the iPhone 5 was announced from a gun blog. Guess I have to turn in my Apple Fanboy(TM) license. Reply Mark says: September 14, 2012 at 22:29 @Greg Camp…LOL!!!!! I know what you mean!!!! Big honking steel dial, ring ring sounds!!! Yelling at people to get off the line because you were on there first!!! Hoping your girlfriends parents were on the same party line while you were discussing the weekend plans with your buddies!!!! Actually if I shot it i wouldn’t use my 7.62x54r, I would use my 1914 Mauser Pocket Pistol in 6.35mm(.25auto) with hardball ammo. Tiny holes=more shots before it disappears in a cloud of plastic dust!!! Reply Mark says: September 14, 2012 at 22:31 Oh and btw since the Iphone5 is 7.6mm thick and my Mauser Pistol has a 6.35mm round I wonder if I could put a hole through it side to side without destroying it on the first shot!!! Reply Greg Camp says: September 14, 2012 at 22:35 A friend told me that he shot a soda can with a .25 and the bullet bounced back. If were going tiny, I’d rather chew it up with a .22 LR pistol and a brick of ammo. Reply Mark says: September 26, 2012 at 16:16 Or a .22wmr with flextips!!!! See if it expanded before it went thru!!!! Side to side and try it front to back also!!!! Could be fun!!!
