Shooting Through the Engine Block of a Car – CT Gunsite Event

Five hundred rounds in less than a minute out of everything from a .380 ACP to 12ga shooting steel slugs…and the only rounds that hit were Iain’s that he skipped under the car. Moral of the story: your big block V8 might save your life.

    Isn’t this what the Desert Eagle is designed to do?

      Yes, but it was designed to disable the engine, not hit a target behind the engine.

        I didn’t know that. Learn something new every day.

    Yeah, no Desert Eagle in 50cal?

    Looks fun now that’s automotive recycling.

  5. I was hoping the guy with the camera would show how many holes were on the other side of the car.

    .50 BMG wasn’t present?

    shooting a cannonball through a car lengthwise (including through the engine block and transmission):

    skip to 1:45 for the muzzle-flashy goodness.

    Short version: the cannonball literally left a hole that allows the camera to see most of the way through the car. It would be all the way, except it was deflected slightly upward.

      What kind of stamp do you need for one of these canons? I’m going to throw a tarp over it and EDC it. That’d be a fun Wally Walk.

      That video is flat out badass.

  8. Awesome Canon Shot through the engine!
