For anyone with guns, thats interested in wondering what happens if you shoot a weapon(depending on the caliber), in your house, at like a burglar or something. Where does the bullet go? How far does it travel?

The video explains it pretty well....kinda boring, but interesting.

Yep, just a further reminder to always be aware, not only of your target, but what is behind it.

Tests aren't very scientific, but I thought it was some pretty good info to chew on.

Although, I hope I never have to worry about having to use my gun to defend myself, especially in my house. Then again once I'm out on my own, Mr. Mossberg will be there for things that go bump in the night.

use some (if you can find em) winchester black talons, they'll give the the intruder a nice little wound inside and out. all the energy would be dissipated in the torso, or in some cases the head! No prob with over travel. using a nine millemeter is worrying about whats behind the target in question, there good for penetration(in most usual situations) not wound characteristics with maybe the 147 grainer be a slight exception. Im a .45 man myself 230 grain speer gold dot. also the saber is a fine round too. Just my Para shoots the speer stuff better. Some pistols prefer a certain type over others,experianced shooters would agree with that.
SAL.
