    .50 BMG – I’m actually surprised it took so many hits before the sword broke. I would say that is one well made sword.

    .45 ACP – I wonder whether that was FMJ or JHP ammo. How much of a difference would it have made?

    I don't want to bring anything but an M1A1 to a gun fight with a fifty cal.
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    It was impressive to see that katana slice a bullet in half...

    I wonder how many shots it would have taken, to do that without a platform for the firearm?

    When I belonged to a black powder club in Oklahoma, we used shoot an axe blade as one of our targets. clay target on either side, had to split the ball and break both targets. All shooting was off hand, open iron sights. It's not really that hard to do.

    That's one confusing video - filmed with an American crew/personnel, Japanese voice-over, Japanese onscreen verbiage, and finally Korean and Japanese subtitles.

    Impressive!

    I did enjoy the double subtitles with 3 different languages.

    Does it make anyone else sad and/or proud that whenever they film this kind of thing they always come here to the US, the only place where it is legal?
