How bulletproof is your lock?

Here's a video of a series of tests of conventional padlocks versus typical firearms.  The result may surprise you.

Might be useful input to your decision as to which lock to purchase.

The shooter in the original Super Bowl ad was Jim Bell.

I had the good fortune to know him and shoot NRA Highpower with him in his later years. He would regale me with tales of 50 gallon drums full of surplus LC 30-06 brass and his days with Lachmiller.

These guys ever think about a backstop? That .50 is gonna go a long, long way through that brush.

Immensely enjoyable.

What surprised me quite a bit was the dead-on accuracy of the handguns.

I have a Walthers P22 and a Smith and Wesson SW9VE. I will now need to see of those two weapons can deliver such accuracy.

Goody, some range time I see in my near future.

It would have been nice if he had also tested some solid body locks for comparison.

Um, all it takes to open that lock is a sharp blow downward with a hammer. If you put a 'wonderbar' style prybar on it, then hit the bar, it makes it easier to apply the force straight down.

And people usually forget to attack the HASP rather than the lock. Hasps are typically mild steel, cheap crap.

But, always fun to shoot stuff :-)
