The Buick of Truth
This is a VERY eye-opening set of experiments from the masters of shooting stuff at the box o' truth:
Interesting to see the effect of vehicle structure on small arms rounds.
Might make you re-think your defensive plans a bit....

Blame it on Sixto - now that is a viable plan.

I checked that out earlier today myself. The safety glass in those windshields is tough stuff. .22LR didn't penetrate at all!

You know the real reason they do this:
"Shooting at stuff is fun"
I like these guys also, good writeups and impressive shots (pictures). Also takes the "fun" out of shoot-em-up movies because you sit there rolling your eyes at the stupid stuff they try to pass off as "real".

I don't believe their results.....does anyone have a car I can shoot?
Very Good post. It is really good info on what is cover and what is concealment.

A very interesting read. Sure wish I could volunteer to help do some of their shooting!

Can I borrow your car?
Interesting info...and that is something I have thought about...

So what is the bottom line of the Buick O' Truth?
1. You do NOT want to be in the passenger compartment of a vehicle when someone opens up on it with a firearm.
As I was at Blackwater this week, my dentist was driving from his home with his wife to go to dinner when their jackass neighbor opened up on their vehicle with a firearm. His wife is dead and he is still in the intensive care unit on a vent at UVA.
If someone starts shooting at you while you are in a vehicle, get the hell out of there NOW. Hit the accelerator and if you have to run the ******* over, do it.
A car provides little in the way of cover, but it DOES give you the power to move fast which makes you harder to hit. Use that to your advantage.
A reality mention too!

Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

WOW that was really interesting....what a good post

A simple, clear reality check for those with heads in the clouds. Good post. Good reminder about 'stopping power' and 'defensive cover'. Absolutely.
Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

Reminds me of the episode of Mythbusters where one of the hosts wanted to prove the myth of the exploding gas tank. He took a PSG-1 to a Cadillac put 5 or 6 holes into a full gas tank. As you can guess, nothing happened. But it was interesting to watch.
