It Was Only A Matter Of Time: People Shooting iPhone 5's

Seen here voiding the hell out of a warranty, a 50-caliber rifle round punches a fiery hole (like a butt after Fourthmeal) through a new iPhone 5. You know, because that's how some people spent their weekend/paycheck. Me? I played Borderlands 2 for over 18 hours. There's another video after the jump advertising an iPhone screen protector that stands up to a .45-caliber handgun round, so you may want to consider one of those if you're planning on getting shot at a lot. Alternatively, leave the mafia and get a real job. "Nobody quits the family." You're not even Italian, you just have a mustache!

Hit the jump for the videos.

Thanks to Tyler, Botch Rocket and Cameron, who all three got shot out of cannons this weekend. So jealous right now.

    Man, I wish I had the money for an Iphone5, a barrett m82 .50 cal, and that sweetass {I'm assuming} 3000+ frame per second highspeed camera, Instead I have an old Fm transmitter a 180lbs crossbow and a 30 frame per second point and shoot XD oh yeah and I guess a youtube account to get paid for shooting things for fun lol.

    I hope he used the 64 GB iPhone model.

    Will it also blend?

  • Marcus Como

    Absolutely do not understand why people do this, and video it. Why would you spend that much money just to destroy something?

    Rated RR is a YouTube Partner. The channel makes money, and since I'm fairly certain Rated RR is one of the original Partners, they make lots of it.

    Because, it is enjoyable to watch. Sometimes it may meet certain satisfaction -- for instance a rival.

    Well there's a comment for the Redneck Hall of Fame.

    well there is some blatant false advertisement right there.
    That is a Judge either chambered for a .410 or .45

    .45 is a large slug and would have pulverized that phone.
    .410 is a shotgun shell and would have had a spread out pattern on the phone

    the first shot showed a close range shot from the .410 shell.
    the second shot showed a long range shot from the .410 shell
    they were probably standing at least 100yds back shooting at it and 2 low velocity pellets hit the screen. should have just shot it with a Red Ryder BB gun.

    edit: just watched the behind the scenes. they never showed the actual shot where the the phone supposedly survived but they did show the ammo. it's clearly rat-shot which is extreme low velocity created to use indoors and not to damage anything.

    Yeah without looking into it so much I kinda figured the same thing with that bullet proof cover, no way a plastic sheet is going to absorb the energy of a .45 without at least cracking the screen, handsdown BULLSHIT!
