Actually, we shot two airbags with Chris’ Howa 1500 chambered in .300 WinMag (review pending). You know, for science. Results were achieved!

  1. It’s much more fun just running two leads about 20 feet away to a 9V battery… especially if you remove the bag and place it face down in some dirt.

    • LOL. That’s windbags 😉

      Also, #TooSoon (I’m still warming up to Abraham Lincoln assassination jokes)

      • Name two people shot in the back of the head in a theater…

        Abraham Lincoln and the guy in front of Peewee Herman.

        • “Abraham Lincoln and the guy in front of Peewee Herman.”

          Oh, man! That was a local story here when it went down in Sarasota.

          It was the Genesis of the best joke I ever came up with:

          Q – What did Pee Wee say when they were snapping on the cuffs?

          (In a Pee Wee Herman voice, of course)

          A – “Excuse Me! I’m trying to c#m!”

  2. Surprised the airbag wasn’t removed from that junker, before you destroyed it, it probably had about a $1,000 value on the used market.

    That was roughly as interesting as those vids of folks shooting brand-new model iPhones on the day they are released…

        • Used is fine everywhere except, I believe, in New York. It’s refurbished ones that were federally banned.

          Used in nice condition for popular, current-ish cars usually sell for like $200.

      • Funny, there are thousands of them listed on, and legitimate businesses have been “recycling” them since at least 1990.

        Care to cite the law that makes them illegal to resell?

    • Takata airbags killed via shrapnel, a shotgun-blast to the face and neck. The propellant gas was inert nitrogen.

      If Jeremy can record the VIN, there are databases online to see if it is a Takata…
