Damage shots!

Unread postAuthor: schmanman » Sun Apr 22, 2007 8:52 pm

this is a recent 25 psi shot using a ball bearing at 100' with the swat gun.

the intercooler is about 3.5 inches thick, and is very densely packed.

the aluminum is equivalent to over an inch thick piece of aluminum.

well, I dont mean the strength. I mean the aluminum, If flattened, would be a little over an inch thick.

the penetration is still quite good, considering the distance, pressure, and the thickness of the target.

you cant hardly put a sharpened metal pole through one of these, even when you pound it with a sledgehammer.

I mean, it was a hundred feet away.

yes, you can bent the first layer, or outer edges.


try hitting it with a hammer, it wont do anywhere near that.

the aluminum builds up, and gets proportionatly harder to compress, so by half way through, it's like a block of compacted aluminum.

For all of the doubters, let me just tell you that these radiators are not easy to penetrate. I shot one using my combustion gun and a frozen potato from point blank range, and it only severely dented it. To put any projectile completely through one at 100 feet is quite remarkable.

If your getting chased off a police dog, try not to run through a tunnel then onto a small see-saw then through a ring of fire. They are trained for that!
