This e-bay ad makes the above statement. Judging by the hole in the driver's door, what the hell were they shooting? Looks more like someone swung at the thing with an axe.

Oh, by the way, this is a M-5 cab for sale.

A .410 at very close range. Ive shot up a lot of junk cars and tried different ammo and weapons. Did you ever shoot out a windshield with bird shot in a 12 gauge? Amazing how tough that saftey glass is.

A number of years ago JP stumbled on an old dealer stock which included a NOS M cab. By the time he got back to pick up the stuff the NOS cab had been installed on a farm truck.

I had a little experience seeing the results of larger caliber rounds being fired at automotive targets. The company I worked for in the 1968-70 period made such great things as tank turrets, flame throwers, sniper guns powered by 4000 psi compressed air, and - best of all - 20 mm and 40 mm sabot rounds. These were steel darts made like giant nails with fins but with a special kick: they had depleted uranium tips to be extra heavy and burn through armor plate. Packed into a round with a plastic seal to the cannon bore, the sabot rounds flew out to strike their target as the plastic seals fell away once they left the barrel. One very interesting film I saw of testing in a local quarry showed the sabots being fired into the side of a 1953 Plymouth while the engine was running. The dart penetrated the front fender, went through the block, and broke the crankshaft. I think it continued on and came out the other side of the block. Normally, the dart was expected to burn through at least 1-1/2" of armor plate at a 45 degree angle and turn the inside of a bad guys' tank into a Waring blendor as it ricocheted around inside. Ouch! Not your ammo for casual plinking at old cars.

Over the years my Dad would take different firearms in trade on cars, and resell them... but first we'd have a little target practice in the junkyard :D I'll never forget when I was about 9 or 10 and learned for sure why that 12 gauge had to be TIGHT to your shoulder. OWWWWW....

My S&W S/S .45 revolver with 6 inch barrel can make a serious hole in a door- especially with a hollow point!

Just remember to HANG ON when you squeeze one off [:0][B)]
