    Gun Stress Test at a Higher Level - Hi-Point pistol has been known to take a beating anywhere from running it into the mud to having it run over by a truck and still keeps on running. Will a Hi-Point pistol work if dropped from a helicopter? Well, this is what Edwin Sarkissian did. Check out this skydiving Hi-Point pistol that was "dropped once". Love them or hate them Hi-Point pistols are here to stay. Some people swear by them as an economical protection handgun while others swear at them. Are they that tough? In this video we see a...

    Ever used Rubber Bands to Replace an AK-47 Part? Cooking bacon on the barrel of an AK-47 is one thing, but replacing a vital part of the operating machine with rubber bands takes some serious outside of the box thinking! Usually Youtuber TAOFLEDERMAUS is blowing things up with crude ammo innovations or hacking one. This time they did something that was really worthwhile. They replaced the return spring on an AK-47 with a bunch of rubber bands. The thing is no one has ever tried this. What are the risks? Well, the bolt could slam into your face or worse...

    Are you into old buffalo cartridge and want to make it better? Do this, load it up with smokeless powder in a lever action rifle. You will surely have some fire power with a .50-110 caliber rifle. Which means lots of fun shooting and yes you can take down some game as well. We can't say this enough, loading this cartridge with smokeless powder makes this lever action rifle a hard hitter that can punch holes in steel and obliterate other targets. The 450 grain .50-110 caliber can create more energy than the 458 Winchester Magnum. This cartridge is good...

    Little pocket pistol not doing it for you? Perhaps you should pack this gun. Look at this immense muzzleloading gun small enough to pocket carry for Paul Bunyan that has a loud bang. In a video shared by Best of Weapons we have the king of all muzzleloading handguns. You will see massive flames coming from this big bore. This muzzleloading pistol will have heads turning at the gun range. But be sure to have a vise like grip or else it will fly away from you. Best words of advice is better hold on if anyone ever offers you...

    Out in the wild internet you can find all sorts of homemade guns. Even a 12 gauge handgun, which isn’t a common thing to build. This aspiring gunsmith out in the boonies built one which resembles a 1911 pistol. Its not quite a Diablo 12 gauge handgun in quality and craftsmanship, but this does work as you'll see. The thing is shooting a gun built from a well known gun manufacturer is fine because its a trust issue. You know its not going to blow up in your face or takes your hand off. But, if your buddy saids, he...

    Do you think you're tough enough to take a shot by rubber buckshot? This guy did and its hysterical to watch. Watch this bodybuilder faces off against rubber buckshot and gets pelted. Houston Jones is a bodybuilder that believes he is tougher than the male human even against rubber buckshot fired from a shotgun. He is about to test this out by trial with a scattergun. As an illustration of what can happen to an object. Houston Jones starts out by having his friend shoot at a watermelon which obliterates it. The first few shots are from a distances...

    Think you can handle the recoil from the largest-caliber rifle in the world? Do you like shooting big cartridges that has a huge kick? Probably one of the biggest cartridge in the world is the .950 JDJ. It is .95 inches in diameter, and weighs a stout 3600 grains (8 ounces, half a pound) and uses 240 grains of powder to push this bullet at 2,100 fps. The bullet costs $40 a piece. (ouch!) The guys from "Knight Rifles" had a chance to take this out to the range to shoot one. This bullet generates 38,685 lbs/ft of energy. It...

    Taking this to another Level with a 40mm cannon with Grape Shot Feral hogs poses a threat to the ecosystems in the southern parts of the U.S. Especially in Texas, which wildlife agencies wants hunters to shoot as many as they can. Texas hog hunting regulations are minimal on shooting hours and shooting methods. So basically, you can get your hogs any creative way that you can. For many in Texas its open season with almost no limits of fun. Texans also are known to have the "go big or go home" mentality. Which this guy seriously does with his...

    Tell us if you've done this, come on fess up, you have at least one NERF gun in your home or office and have done the following when no one is watching: 'sliced the pie', hostage shots, body armor drills, quick-draw Doc Holliday trigger guard spins, open shirtless apex carry, look in the mirror and say 'you looking at me?', double tap on swimsuit model posters and long range "sniping". If you've done any of this you're a John Wick fan. Youtuber Corridor Digital did a three minutes of awesomeness a while back, substituting NERF guns for the real deal,...

    Larry Vickers and his buddy Dave Royer were out testing a firearm myths whether dual-wielding versus using sight alignment with a single pistol is better. Seen all the time in the movies Dave and Larry are out to show you what really happens when you fire two pistols at the same time. Stationary Drill They start the test with stationary shooting at multiple targets. (5 targets) Dual shooting (using H&K .45 Compact and a custom Colt 1911) was going from inside targets to outside targets. Single pistol shooting went from left to right. The result for dual shooting was at...

    Am Shooting Journal ^ | 9/20/2018 | J Hines
    And keeps on Ticking! A $75 pawnshop find proved to be pretty hard to kill, despite some 12 gauge stippling. In the above, the Youtuber 704 Tactical channel pits their working pre-owned Hi-Point C9 9mm semi-auto — which they picked up to work on slide cuts, coatings, and basic gunsmithing. All internal parts replaced by their friendly neighborhood Hi-Point, C9 was then pitted against a Mossberg 500 stoked with No. 8 birdshot. The idea for this stress test came from Edwin Sarkissian where he dropped a Hi-Point C9 from a helicopter and the C9 still ran. On this first test...

    The Gatling gun is one of the best-known early rapid-fire spring loaded, hand cranked weapons and a forerunner of the modern machine gun. Invented by Richard Gatling, it is known for its use by the Union forces during the American Civil War in the 1860s, which was the first time it was employed in combat. What about the 12-gauge you ask? This video from "Made Smith's Enterprises, LLC" posted on Facebook. They highlight this modified hand-cranked gatling gun that spits out 12-gauge shotgun shells at an awesome rate. This may not be legal in all states but man wouldn’t you...

    If you're looking for a powerful cartridge for your semi-auto handguns. Then it boils down to a couple of choices. The 10mm and the .45 ACP. Both of these are widely popular so many will have a difficult decision to choose. Some folks that have the money will get both. However, for this scenario we need to choose one. Even if you do own both a 10mm Auto and a .45 ACP handgun, how do you know which one is best for certain task? Both of their capabilities overlap each other but their characteristics and traits differ. Each has distinct...

    A while back there was a story of an Alabama man that shot this huge humongous hog from his porch. This hog is huge, check out the photo. At the time there was much bickering on whether or not the hog was wild. Not claiming that the man poached it or was claiming it wasn't, it’s just that the public was curious. As the story goes an Alabama man, Wade Seago shot it from his front porch with a revolver when he saw the hog near his porch and dog. Most people could careless about Wade's rights to shoot the...

    Could a soda machine stop a large-caliber bullet and save your life? Another question to ponder with us plinkers that have nothing to do. I'm sure most of us normal people don’t think of this but if there were a hail of bullets coming their way. They probably would not think twice to get behind it for some cover. Which brings us back to the question. Again, Youtuber Edwin Sarikissian tries out some different calibers on a vending machine just to see if it is bulletproof. The results were very impressive. This metal box stood up to .500 Magnum and...

    Have you ever wondered how many cans of spray paint will a shotgun shoot through? If you're a plinker I guess you would be curious of this question. So thank goodness for Youtuber Gould Brothers they have the answer as they have have tried out this experiment. They shot it against 10 cans with a standard shotgun slug nothing fancy. The results are amazing. If you were betting on six cans of spray paint for the slug to go through, then you win the jackpot!

Youtuber Edwin Sarkissian has the answer, as always he goes through an array of calibers to see if the traffic light pole is bulletproof.
