A Bullet Fired Underwater Doesn't Shoot That Far

Video: No one should ever have to face the other end of a gun barrel. But if you find yourself in such a situation, let’s all hope that it’s underwater. Here’s our favourite physicist Andreas Wahl proving how the velocity of a bullet slows down like crazy when it’s fired underwater with a lovely visual experiment. The bullet nosedives after getting shot and only travels about a metre. If you’re more than like 2m away from the rifle, you’d be fine.


Is Titanium Basically Bulletproof?

Video: Titanium is strong, super light and has a cool name, but is it bulletproof? Demolition Ranch tries to puncture a hole in a 3cm thick titanium plate by shooting different calibre bullets and guns at it, and the results are pretty impressive. The titanium plate can withstand little pellet guns all the way up to huge arse armour piercing .50 cal black tip bullets. Titanium, very impressive.


What Happens When You Stuff A Shotgun With A Carrot Like Bugs Bunny And Then Shoot It?

Video: f you were a child once upon a time, you may have remembered Bugs Bunny cleverly stuffing Elmer Fudd’s shotgun with a carrot so that when Fudd fired his shotgun, it would explode in his face. But would that actually happen if you did that in real life? Demolition Ranch, answerer of life’s questions about weapons, tests out that infamous cartoon scenario and finds that the carrot doesn’t stop the shotgun slug at all (it still shoots fine), it just destroys the barrel of the gun in the process.


Watch Different Calibre Bullets Hit A Bowling Ball

Video: Bowling balls are strong and dense and basically indestructible. Well, that’s until you start hitting them with different calibre bullets just to see what will happen. A .22 calibre bullet from a pistol barely even dents the bowling ball while a .50 BMG incendiary round impossibly shreds it in half. Demolition Ranch fired so many kinds of bullets at a bowling ball that you’ll never have to wonder again what happens when a bullet hits a bowling ball.


How Much Paper Does It Take To Stop A 50 Cal Machine Gun?

Video: Reams of paper make for pretty good bullet proof material. It’s just layers and layers of protection! But what happens when it’s a 50 cal machine gun that’s shooting at paper? How many reams does it take to stop that ridiculously giant and powerful bullet? About 7! Which is like, 3500 sheets of paper.


What It Looks Like When A Ballistic Gel Body Dummy Gets Shot Up With Bullets

Video: Jiggle, jiggle, jiggle. That’s what it looks like from afar when a fully automatic glock starts shooting its bullets at the ballistic gel dummy. And it’s almost funny how the gel moves! But then you look a little closer and see the true damage of the gun and it’s a whole lot scarier. The bullets spread open upon impact with the gel for maximum damage and then basically torpedoes itself into such spiraling damage that it’s so very frightening.


Awesome Slow Motion Footage Of Bullets Piercing Random Objects

Video: Ever wanted to see a bullet shoot through a banana? A hamburger? An apple? A lightbulb? A jug of water? Milk? Ham? A single playing card? You got your wish then. Vickers Tactical shot bullets at totally random objects in slow motions and the results are pretty damn incredible.


How Does Homemade Body Armour Made From T-shirts, Paper, And Duct Tape Hold Up To Bullets?

Video: This test of homemade body armour by Demolition Ranch reads like the old fable of the Three Little Pigs. This little piggy made body armour out of T-Shirts. This little piggy used duct tape. And this one used a stack of printer paper. Which homemade body armour can withstand the big bad wolf bullet? Well, they each sort of do to varying degrees.


How Many Shots From An Assault Rifle Can A Ceramic Body Armour Plate Take Before Breaking?

Can body armour stand up to an assault rifle? Can a ceramic plate not shatter against the bullets of an AR-15 and AK-47 hybrid weapon? Demolition Ranch investigated by shooting the crap out of the body armour to see how long it takes for a bullet to pierce and penetrate through.


How Many Gun Shots And What Calibre Of Bullet Does It Take To Actually Bust Open A Lock?

We see it in movies all the time — somebody needs to get passed a locked door. Shoot up that padlock with your gun and boom, you’re clear on the other side. But does that actually work in real life? Demolition Ranch attempted to find out, with different guns and different calibre bullets and a whole lot of shooting to find out.
