Demolition Ranch is back to investigate exactly how much paper it takes to stop different calibers.
Earlier this week a young woman unintentionally shot and killed her husband while they were attempting to stop a .50 AE with a single book for a YouTube video.
As sad as their tragedy may be, there were plenty of resources available to verify that their stunt was doomed from the start. Matt filmed this video more than a year ago, and it’s following basically the same principle. The only difference is that Matt and his friends are smart enough to stay behind the firing line.
See how much paper it takes to actually stop everything from a tiny .22 lr all the way up to the mighty .50 BMG.
