You Want to Shoot the New iPhone 5 (Turned Sideways) with a Tokarev TT-30 By Robert Farago - September 13, 2012 20 Facebook Twitter Pinterest WhatsApp Email ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ ◀Previous Post Next Post▶ RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Happy Independence Day From TTAG Celebrate Independence Day Like a Founding Father…With Guns…Big Ones Atlas: Today’s American Gun Culture is a Result of Mythologizing and Marketing the Old West 20 COMMENTS 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 I’m sure Apple has a patent on that. Reply well I now know I’m not a nerd Reply 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 Reply But….why would you want a phone that’s not even for sale yet and is already considered outdated compared to phones that have been on the market for months?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 My 1 year old Samsung Galaxy II still kicks iPhone 5’s butt. Reply 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. Probably for the same reason I’m ordering mine Friday: It works better than anything else out there. By a very wide margin. Reply 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. No, don’t own a Tokarev. There is a CZ-52 in the safe however. Reply Shot up a cell phone with a pellet rifle once, does that count? Also busted up a tv with a shotgun. Reply I’d rather holler “Pull” and see if I could obliterate the device with some #4. Reply +1 Reply 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 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 @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 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 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 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!!!
