Default Sherman tank VS Gun safes

I laughed, so retarded, but entertaining at least.
Guy has a successful enough gun channel & connections he was able to make this happen = cool

No science, no sense, just guys being guys destroying things.
ON a side note, didn't know Liberty safes were filled with sheets of drywall for fire insulation

Pretty much every safe has a layer or two of sheetrock in them for fire protection.

IIRC, liberty has a video on the youtube showing how they're constructed. They had the sheetrock and then some ceramic wool.

They probably had their rear sight leaf on the 200m setting while shooting point blank.

Used to love demo ranch back when he was microwaving glocks. Then he became a vlogger and started recording his workouts and other douchey shit.

I still don't think they know who killed his partner.

This is exactly why I don't own a safe. Way too many of those tanks around here.

Those Liberty safes look pretty weak. I would instead go with a cheap Stack-On key-lock box.

Nah,

James Yaeger is a "I was a contractor" pretending to know everything about all weapon systems.

FPS Russia was just a North Carolina guy pretending to be Russian for guy humor and entertainment
going "Hey lets blow shit up" and ended up making MILLIONS from it.

two VERY different animals. Tactical Timmy VS Comedy
One takes himself too seriously, the other guy was just having fun.

Slow the video down and you'll see that the round is tumbling before it ever gets to the safes. When the round hits the first safe, it's damn near sideways.

Proper artillery rounds have to be individually registered as destructive devices with the $200 tax stamp. BTW, if any of you are wondering if I think that the average citizen should be able to buy a breechloading gun/howitzer/cannon/mortar and any and all available rounds, over the counter, the answer would be yes. Maybe with a limit; no bigger than 155mm.

Turned solid steel or aluminum projo's is good to go / no stamp.

No different than solid dummy mortar rounds.

same here. Guy was THE pinnacle of gun channels back n the day. He made MILLIONS before he got targeted by the ATF and they found the stupidist thing ever to end his career. Guy was just plain fun in his videos.

The actual downfall of FPS Russia was apparently wearing shorts in Georgia in the middle of summer.

At least that’s the reason they gave for serving a search warrant.

Also remember, the feds charged him with “obliterating a serial number” because his gun was ceracoated and partially obstructed the engraved serial number.

Demo ranch is the same schtick over and over again. Ad nauseam, it’s old and stale. Not even clicking on a guy who does what he does and doesn’t overtly support the 2A.

yup, if you listen to Kyle on his podcast and follow what happened those years back, it was an OBVIOUS fed hit case. They wanted him BAD and were willing to do anything to make it happen. After his gun guy was murdered they basically said "we want him, find what it takes to get him" and literally waited and then through everything they could at him in hopes that something stuck. At the end of the day he pled down to the weed charge because the feds were going to bankrupt him with all the other retarded charges (like defacing a serial number with his cerakote) etc. They wanted him gone and didn't care how they did it. They didn't care that he only served a few months and was let off with a slap on the wrist. What they cared about was confiscating his firearms and shutting him down. And they got what they wanted at the end of the day

This was under Obama, just another attack on gun culture.
