Cracking a Safe with a Shotgun

Can a Safe hold up against a Shotgun?

One of our past articles showed some flaws with the security of a gun safe and how you can accidentally crack those safes. Those techniques were considered the “soft” method. What about cracking it the old fashion way of “brute force”.

Taofledermaus has just the improvised shotgun shell to try on this tough target.

This test of wax slugs is against an old safe. Can an old safe be penetrated by these wax slugs? Well, a full can of beer is what is being protected inside of this safe.

Watch as a shotgun loaded with wax slugs tries to strong arm it. At first try the rounds went through but missed the beer can inside the gun safe. Second try the rounds went through the safe and destroyed the beer can. The damage is quite impressive to say the least.

Matt the shooter used a Mossberg 590 12 ga shotgun with wax slugs.

Wax slugs are home-improvised shotgun shells with the shot mixed with wax. This causes the shot and wax to hit the target like a slug.

Not much can hold up against the power of a 12 gauge shotgun.
