When you fill your car with refined oil remember that it has been paid for with blood and guts, some from your own countrymen, most not.

You should build a frame for the damage and put it on your wall.

That is bloody impressive, especially from a mini combustion :shock:

That polycarbonate is tough stuff, a sheet three times thicker is enough but stop a bullet from a 7.62mm sniper rifle at a few metres range!

have a look here from some comparative tests

Imagine what that same round could do from a 300 psi pneumatic ;)

I think that the military MUST have some really cool weapons that they are not disclosing. :evil:

JSR, i think you know but the comparitive test involved Acrylic- not Polycarbonate as i suggested. :)

Thats wiiked pentartion.Although its not like the bullet proof/resistant glass as that is layerd wiht glass and laminate polycarbonate or something.

I think a nail gun would be able to do that sort of penetration.

Pretty impressive.

Interesting that the polycarbonate doesn't look like it cracked or even crazed. More like the nail was melting its way through.
