Can you only do one shot per can?

I was planning maybe a sinker for the starter, metal .177 BB buckshot for the main, a paintball as a side and maybe a golfball for dessert :D

Well, when I created this topic I had a single shot in mind, so maybe we should have 2 categories.

1) How much damage can you do to a soda can with a single shot.

2) How much damage can you do to a soda can with however many shots you feel like taking. :D

I find that filling them with water and slamming with a potato slug works very well. I have ripped a can completely open with a slug that way, using 150psi out of my Negotiator. It crushed the top, tore the bottom hemisphere in half along the diameter, and pretty much turned it inside out.

If you want, but it's not really a can, anyone can break a glass bottle, and it's too hard to tell how much damage you have caused.

It's not a competition, more or less a challenge. Just to get people out there and destroying things.

As soon as Windows Movie Maker starts being my b|tch again i'll upload my videos :P

Mentioning religion around here is not a very good idea, for anyone that doesn't already know. 10 page long discussions and locked topics frequently result.

And Redcoat, yes, you are a retard.
