Mythbusters Shooting The Green Hornet Car With SMGs

To match a scene in the movie where the car gets shot, then cut in half by an elevator:

Kind of useless, but the slow motion footage was cool. Slow motion footage is always cool though…

Interesting grip Tory has on the H&K UMP (see pic on left)… is that something people do? I’d hold a beer that way, but not a gun. *shrug*

I think that he was using that grip to brace against the plexiglass protection.

I’ll second what Bob wrote. From that screenshot it looks like he’s bracing against something and while it might not be a spot-on picture from a Jeff Cooper instruction manual, it’s still in the ballpark for such a situation.

I’ll come strolling along and give it a third. All in favor?

I recall learning a method similar in nature for use with the MP5 variants in a short weapons SMG/room clearing sort of exercise in The Corps in ’92 or so.

Tory had some nice groupings – anyone noticed? That is probably due to bracing….

Still those guys had some nice fun. How come Grant has a Tommy with open sights? No one had an .45 chambered AR for him?

Fifth: about the bracing, I will point out that I did not see him shoot that way in the video.
