Asking the Tough Questions: Are Computer Hard Drives Bulletproof?

How does computer equipment stack up against various gun calibers?

Have you ever wondered if a computer’s hard drive is bulletproof? Probably not, but that’s the question Youtuber Demolition Ranch sets out to answer this time around.

Not content to stop there, he also tests the effectiveness of ever-increasing calibers against a heavy-duty laptop and a couple monitors.

Well, that’s one thing to do with those ancient and obsolete big-box computer monitors!

I suppose if you find yourself in a situation with an active shooter using .45 caliber or below and there’s nothing but computer equipment to protect yourself, it’s better than nothing at all. Although I doubt anyone has lots of extra computer hard drives laying around to fashion makeshift body armor.

This guy just has way too much fun making these videos., doesn’t he? Demolition Ranch… continually answering the weird firearms-related questions you never thought to ask.
