The Most Useless (Yet Totally Cool) Ballistics Test You’ll Ever See: 20mm Vulcan Prius vs Ballistic Gel

What’s the point you might ask…well there is no point, it’s just a really cool thing to watch is all.  I mean, using ballistics gel to see what a 20mm round will do to it is a given, but when you mount a 20mm Vulcan on one of the most sissy-ass cars ever made, it kinda makes that car one of the most bad-ass vehicles on the road. I mean, if you’re driving a Toyota Prius with a 20mm Vulcan  attatched to it down the freeway, ain’t N-O-B-O-D-Y gonna say SQUAT to you.

This is still a pretty cool thing to watch and it’s less than three minutes long…so it’s a ‘win-win’ for all.
