Notice how he spread the shots around?

If I were a bad guy trying to put rounds on target...I would've hammered away in the same spot.

Kudos for a ballsy ad still, I wouldnt want to be in the drivers' seat.

He was actually sitting. So I would say "sitting behind your product"

Nice guys too! I spoke extensively with them about getting a windshield and driver's window on a '95 RRC I was considering buying. Josh (crash303) in SD checked it out and noticed the inconsistencies in the side glass and the crack in the windscreen! He saved my bacon on that one! Deal breakers on an otherwise fully armored rover!

I thought that in the beginning as well, but there actually is a couple of shots towards the end that get very close to previous shots on the screen.

That was amazing. I just hope we don't need something like that.

Jeff,

if you are behind the wheel of a B6 or B7 level car you will not stay put waiting for the sequence to hit the same spot, I saw a full mag dumped withing inches of each shot and the glass held integrity and chances are if you are that close to the trigger dude / dudette, you will run him/her over

Silly demo...everyone knows you don't bring 7.62x39 to a fight where explosives are the answer!

Sorry for the crappy pic, I was a little busy. The vehicle, BTW, functioned as intended and saved the occupants. Thankfully the contact afterward when they had to bail was 'disrupted' by the remainder of the element traveling with the principal.

Stud! It looks like you might have been a bit busy! Car-b-que bmw 1999-2001 7il series

Contextually inappropriate but one of my favorite lines form "Valakarie" and also true "every problem on earth can be solved with the careful application of high explosives." (No YouTube available to link)
