Maybe he should go into buisness for handcrafted metal swiss cheese sculptures. On another note, how can you afford to shoot at safes? Grammar note: what is the plural form of the word safe? safi?

Thanks :D That's the explosive impact I expect from high speed stuff. :D
I get the same results with larger projectiles and jugs of water. Nice. Don't stand too close. I got a shower last time I did that from about 10 feet away.

It's surprising how far the water droplets can fly. Even shots from cannons on the relatively small scales I work on are capable of throwing water 30 feet or more.

Actually, a few of the video takes I've done have been ruined for that exact reason - the camera gets drenched and the lens covered in droplets.
