Default Lethal Candy

Upon manifold requests, I want to do a very special shootout video tomorrow.

I hit the supermarket and bought all kinds of candy - of the chunky type, sized right for slingshot ammo.

I will test it against layers of cardboard, then go up and shoot it against thin plywood, finally against ballistic gelatin.

To calibrate the tests, I will also try a paintball. Everybody knows that a paintball hurts like hell, but won't really penetrate flesh.

Should be interesting!

Very lethal sugar balls instead of 20mm steelballs. This stuff is always lethal. As amunition and if you eat to much of them.

YES! Another video and fun one too.

Okay, where do I send you golf ball size Jawbreakers? I'm sorry, but you cannot consider this a complete test without these.

They come in a 30 pound case if you would like to design your rowboat shooter to launch them like grenades.

Apparently sugar-free gummi bears can go through the human body with incredible ease as well (read the reviews)
