Effective ways to shoot through vehicle glass whether shooting from inside your vehicle or shooting from the outside to stop an attacker’s vehicular assault.

    I found it interesting.

    I would have liked to see slow motion video after it exits the winshield and some penetration testing after it went through the windshield too would be good to know.

    I guess another rental is in order

    Very interesting video, I would have liked to see what different calibers would do to the door

    Very interesting, I agree with the first two responses.

      Most pistol calibers have the same effect on a door or other compartment of a vehicle. The door and similar structures offer little protection. On occasion the bullet will strike intervening objects like the window motor or other reinforcement and it will limit the penetration. I have put 22 lr from a Mark II pistol through a door and it still had enough energy left to penetrate a metal 55 gallon drum. As for rifles, the engine block is the only part that I would want to use.

    They did something similiar on another site some time ago (about three to five years) that was a bit more in depth than this short video.

    They said it's more accurate when the pistol's muzzle is touching the glass. Is that so?

    that mp5 at the end was just too awesome for words

  • Chris

    The video appears to be missing. Please correct the problem.

  • J.R. Verdugo

    Where's the video? How come I can't get it?

  • Steve

    As others have noted, the video is now missing.
