Humans are curious animals. Gun’s aficionados love shooting at anything that moves. So some curious mind with an old, almost unserviceable vehicle and a powerful .50 cal rifle decided to answer this question: will a .50 shot stop a running engine?
We shoot at targets, pumpkins, bottles, trees, wild animals, etc. Why not shoot an old truck with a .50 cal and find out if it would still run after a being shot. The process of finding the answer is as interesting as the answer itself.
