  1. Shooting Underwood’s extreme defense, my 9mm always gets deeper into the red oak targets I’ve made than my .45 auto. My 10 mm is a different story. No hiding from the 10mm Underwood’s.

  2. I knew FMJ wouldn't penetrate because the round separates meaning less energy through the round once hit the target.

  3. Hi, I have a request for a video. Or just hoping for feedback.

    My apartment along with my neighbors and a friends apartment were all broken into. My neighbors and friend were all out of town when it occurred. I called the police and they did not send anybody out which left me clearing three separate apartments on my own. I do not have any military, police, or tactical training. I have my concealed carry licenses and shoot as much as I can however I consider myself as just knowing the basics.

    I was wondering if you could do a video on clearing stairwells and a house type setting while in the dark. All I had was my handgun and a flashlight. I did not have a weapon mounted light that was available to me.

    Thank you

  4. Why are you so fucking surprised that the .45 acp round didn't penetrate through both fucking door panels? It's fucking traveling at a fucking slower velocity and has a wider fucking profile. The fucking 9mm round has a slimmer fucking profile and is traveling fucking faster, making it a fucking better penetrator. Fucking ballistics 101!

  5. What you were seeing when those rounds did NOT go thru was they were hitting the structural cross members in either one or two of the doors.  I know from testing that the .45ACP will rip through the doors like the 9mm unless it hits the beams.  Nice video to show people out there how stupid it is to use a car door or car for Cover (unless it's the only thing around of course 🙂

  6. Is there anyway you can use a 10mm for a test My edc is a glock 29 with underwood 155 grain also has the ultimate trigger system by pyramid and I have a 21lbs spring with a stainless steel guide ride what do you think of the round as a edc

  7. 9mm BEATS .45 through a door panel ? WOW ! So much for the caliber debate, or maybe it was just that both rounds that didn't penetrate hit the front seat instead ? Where's the .40 S&W test ? Yeah, yeah, I know I'm going to hear a lot of shit about that…lol
    Just wondering though…

  8. Breaking news small caliber handguns can’t penetrate through an engine block!! Top YouTube tip, put spec ops in front of a YouTube video to try and get views. If you claim to be ex spec ops don’t click bait. 556 rounds on a good day can barely go through engine blocks. Takes 762 and above to hit through an engine.

  9. “Bob over havin a bad fuckin day…” for some reason that line cracked me up, if Bobs dumb enough to believe the movies and take cover behind 1/4 of sheet metal on both doors combined he kinda deserves the bad fuckin day.

  10. Could of told you that shit without making a video. You might not even get a 50 to go through and through that block or axle.
