    Immaturity at its best.. I chuckled a little at the title.

    Nice video, I have my reserves though. I'd like to discuss them, but I need to go out and test my wife's wok's penetration capabilities

    Wow, I'm actually kinda surprised that the .45 didn't go through.

    Never bring a frying pan to a gun fight? Kind of neat to see the bullets bounce off and roll across the ground.

    Pretty fun to watch, but I only use Lodge cast iron pans in my house. Can't imagine any of those calibers penetrating that.

    Fun to watch but void of any vaule. One the pan was not secure so move could dispense energy when hit depending in angle.
    Bit of any unfair deal the 9 was 115 and the 40 a 155 at that close a distance 10 feet that would make a big difference in the size of the hole.
    No idea why anyone would fire a Hp in a 380..
    If I find time I try it with a pan held in place.

    Seen similar results against ballistic glass. .45 just dents it, 9mm and .40S&W sticks into it but doesn't penetrate, .22LR sticks in pretty dang far, but still doesn't get through.

    However, penetration is just one aspect of stopping power. Shot placement is still the key factor.

    Shooting is always more fun when you can use common every day object as targets.

    That was fun to watch, I was really surprised only the 9mm and .40 went through - thought for sure the 45 would have no prob. I won't take it as true testing but it does provoke some thought. I have only carried .40 and 9mm for most of my carry days so this test makes me feel warm and fuzzy .

    BTW - I always look at garbage I throw out and usually think how fun it would be to shoot certain things, good to see I'm not the only one.
    The stupidity of some people NEVER ceases to amaze me.

    Oh My!! The first thing I thought when I saw the thread title was, "You mean there's something better than tequila?!?"

    I always enjoy watching others shoot at everyday items with different calibers and notice any differences in performance. I like watching because I don't have to pick up any mess afterward. Thanks for posting the video.

    Fun video to watch. I noticed however that he only used the 165 grain and not 180 in the .40. Wonder if it would have made any difference.
