    I have been wondering how S30-V would hold up to being shot with a 45 ACP. I took my abuser Raven to the hills today and killed it with my pistol.

    First, I split bullets with it by shooting it at the edge from about 15 feet. Here is a picture of the knife after splitting a few lead bullets. I have knocked pieces of the edge out shooting 154-CM and ATS-34 and D-2 knives. So far so good, no damage. You can see the smeared lead from the bullet splitting. I split 3 220 grain bullets with no damage.

    Then I killed it. I propped it against a Ponderosa tree and hit it square on the side with a 230 grain Hydrashock from about 25 feet. I have never seen a knife survive this yet and the Raven was no exception. It shattered like glass.

    Moral to the story? Dont take a knife to a gunfight!



    :eek: :eek:

    (edit) Here it is killed dead Bobby! :D Whoa, picture went weird on me!

    Phil, I dont think Cliff is allowed to have a gun at home. Besides, I am just looking for the "Stamp of approval" :D

    Rob,

    Rob, you're missing the 'point'(pun intended)...

    I more realistic test would be your .223 at 100 yds. (No relation to the DC shootings intended, none at all)

    Split a .223 at that distance and I'll buy you a beer, or three... ;)
