I doubt if any tablet could survive an encounter with an MP7 (without some serious armor between the tablet and the MP7). This kind of 'testing' is such a crock of sh*t.

True, but it is entertainment for viewers, just like those silly reality T.V. shows, we know they are all a crock of s*** lol.

would be a nice benchmark for rugged device manufacturers to try and tackle LOL.

The HTC evo 3d has stopped bullets and saved lives.

Saved lives? It hasn't saved multiple people.

Yes it has. It saved that man's life and all the lives of his unborn children and grandchildren. Think outside the box, fruitcake.

I'd agree, much like the "drop tests" every phone site does, but in this case he probably gets a lot of viewers and subscribers to his channel worth much more than the money he spent on the iPad.

A lot of times these are donated or bought by sponsors.

Yeah you're right about that. As a working guy though, I just can't stomach spending that kinda money to destroy tech. I just got my mini 2, and don't even want my fingerprint smudges on it, let alone bullets through it lol.

PA must be low on clicks today..
I bet they intentionally left out MP7 "sub-machine gun" out of the title too.. because I had no idea what the hell an MP7 was in the context of a phone.. had I known it was a stupid "lets shoot up the phone/pad" test, I'd have never bothered.

Ditto, I thought it was some kinda comparison test with a new tablet.

What a shock it lost! I guess next year they'll have to make it out of kevlar.

There's a variant of this gun that will go through kevlar.
"In response to the NATO PDW requirement document D29, HK developed a Personal Defense Weapon system that will penetrate the CRISAT vest, comprised of 1.6mm titanium plates and 20 layers of Kevlar, out to 200 meters and beyond."

Note to self, do not purchase Ipads for bullet proof protection

I wasn't familiar with a 4.6 mm bullet -- it's about .18 inches or "18 caliber" -- just slightly larger in diameter than the traditional .177 inch BB ammo.
Did you know H&K makes a version of this gun that will penetrate body armor?
