Default The movie in question was "Gross Pointe Blank"

I don't think ANY tub will stop a center fire rifle round. I suspect almost all of the pistol rounds will penetrate most tubs as well.

How can a fiberglass tub stop a bullet? They are pretty thin. I don't think any tube will stop something the size of 9mm or bigger. The old Cast Iron clawfoot tubs probably stand the best chance of deflecting a bullet or at least absorbing enough to where they would penetrate very deep. I do know for a fact a toilet will not stop a bullet, and creates a whole lot of shrapnel in the way of tiny bits of sharp ceramic. That was with a .45 though, it was fun

LOL Good one. I'd sure try and talk her into dropping that gun!
I don't think most common self defense calibers would penetrate a cast iron tub. Even FMJ. It would be interesting to find out though.

Cool video but was that cast iron or sheet metal? I looked pretty thin to me.

Default The movie with Minnie Driver

was "Grosse Point Blank", improbably silly, yet very satisfying for all the Hollywood-style impossible gunplay!
