Are traffic light pole bulletproof?
Its one of those gee whiz question for the gun buff who’s just sitting around figuring out what to plink at.

Youtuber Edwin Sarkissian has the answer, as always he goes through an array of calibers to see if the traffic light pole is bulletproof. Here are the calibers that Edwin uses:

  • .22LR – no effect
  • 9mm FMJ – no effect
  • Desert Eagle 50AE – penetrate the first surface leaving a dent
  • 500 Smith&Wesson/Extreme Penetrator – penetrated the front surface but not through the second skin
  • 5.56 – Only penetrated the frontend but not through the back
  • AK47 7.62×39 – penetrated the frontend but not through the back
  • .50 BMG – went right through both surface


Heres the shot with a .50 BMG that went right though the light pole.

Hickok45 has showcased a lot of guns on his YouTube channel but for the first time ever, he’s shooting a .50 BMG.

Hickock45 has built up an impressive following on his YouTube channel with over 134k subscribers. And its unbelievable to think that with all the rounds he’s fired and all the videos he has made in all that time, he’s never before shot a .50 BMG for his channel?
But, thanks to his son, John, we finally get to see what it looks like for the great Hickok45 to fire off a few rounds from a .50 BMG.

Impressions on shooting the .50 BMG
While it’s not exactly the thundering explosions that we sometimes expect to see in the movies when you shoot off a 50 cal round. Hickock45 states there isn’t much of a recoil and isn’t as much as a 12 gauge, as most people would think.
