This beast of a revolver should be no match for a stack of books, right? Time to place your bets.

Chris Cheng certainly aroused our attention with this latest stunt. The .460 XVR by Smith & Wesson is a beast of a revolver that is tailor-made for big game hunting. You simply have to take a gander at that 12 inch barrel to understand the sheer power this thing can punch! And at 2,200 feet per second, you just know that .460 round will hit it’s mark in mind-boggling time.

Since no moose were available, Cheng offered up a stack of his ‘Shoot To Win’ books to act as the target. These hardcover how-to’s contain 256 pages each – a substantial amount of pulp – but keep in mind that blistering bullet being used.

So, without further ado, place your bets on the number of books you think will get drilled to oblivion:

Did you guess correctly? I was leaning toward five books, simply from figuring the sheer power this twosome would produce. (We’re guessing Cheng will ‘discount’ those three copies to his followers, lol!).
