    Last night on a new show called "AutoManiac", which is about cars and not auto guns, they used a Glock 20 against some bullet proof glass in a car. It was interesting seeing the hits from inside the car. It is a view you won't get to see, and get to tell about it.

    I saw that show but they didn't show the gun long enough for me to tell what it was.

    They did mention later that newer armored cars could even stop ".306 (yes, .306) Winchester rounds, commonly used by police snipers"

    The show was about cars. It was a decent show too.

    Yep, I caught the .306 reference. I figured he or the writer was confusing .30/06 and the .308 and combined the two into the .306. The Glock 20 wasn't shown enough or even discussed. They showed what a hit from one looked like from inside the car. I thought it made a pretty good impression on the glass, but it would have been better if they had fired several different handgun rounds into the glass, then we would have something to talk about!!!

    I caught the 306 reference too, but thought my ears were failing me, it wouldn't be the first time. Ironically, I DIDN'T hear the reference to the G20, but I did see them shoot the Glock so I must have been spacing out. ;Q
