    So she cooks up a log of gel, lays it on a bed inside her home and shoots it. Interesting.

    Very little useful information about ballistics or stopping power, penetration and the power of the load.

    OTOH

    A whole bucket full of information about the power of human stupidity.

    I wonder why she chose a bed for a back-stop?
     
  11. Yeah, so it exited bare naked geletin then harmlessly bounced off a pillow?

    I'm not worried about naked targets and overpenetration.
    :shower:

    That geletin 'log' didn't look like 18" and it didn't jiggle like any calibrated ballistic geletin I've ever seen.

    And how did she get multiple entrance and multiple exit wounds from a single mushroomed bullet which didn't fragment?

    But, was she hawt?

    The bullet did expand pretty well in the gel. Maybe that is why the exiting bullet didn't do much damage to the pillow.

    That's without a doubt the strangest gel test that I've ever seen.

    Hitch hikers thumb...mine do that as well. Didn't you go over that in middle school science class? It's a genetic trait, just like being able to roll your tongue ;)
