Bathtubs?
 
Can bathtubs stop pistol rounds?

Quick! Someone call Mythbusters!
 
I have serious doubts - I think centerfire pistol rounds WILL penetrate most tubs ( certainly the fiberglas type ).

We need the Mythbusters to do a segment on this.

:D

I must admit that question is a first.

Fiberglass - yes, porcelain - probably, old fashioned cast iron - ??? What kind of ammo are we talking?

Bathtubs
 
Fiberglass, of course. Cast Iron, not likely. Porcelain, doubt it. They are actually porcelain coated cast iron.

Name that movie!

Hmmmm sounds like a trip to a local scrap yard where the owner lets me shoot is in order. Lets put together a list of calibers to test.

:note all rounds will be FMJ

1.) 9mm
2.) .40S&W
3.) .45acp
4.) .357 mag
5.) .38spl
6.) .380

Thats all the pistol calibers I have, but I will do rifle rounds as well.

1.) 5.56x45
2.) 7.62x39
3.) 5.45x39
4.) 7.62x51
5.) and last but not least 300 WSM :D

Don't know about bullet penetration of cast iron, but I do know I would be pleasantly surprised to find Minnie Driver hiding in my tub, with or without the pistol.
