Handgun penetration tests on cars

I did this test at a police range in Indiana.  We got a car, opened the doors, and shot through them.  On this test we used the FN 5.7×28 and the Glock 35 .40 calibers.

The first pictures here are of the 5.7 round.  The round was the American Eagle fmj.

In both cases, and multiple angles shot, the rounds deflected slightly upwards.  The impact on the second door was higher than were the round struck the first door, even firing at a downward angle.  There is approximately a two foot gap between the doors.

These are the results for the .40 cal

This is the .40 cal shot through the trunk and went through the back seat, into the dash.  All the .40  rounds used were Gold Dot HP.

This last picture is the windshield.  We fired at a target in the drivers seat, and 12 feet in front of the front bumper, all through the back window.  All rounds went through the back window and the front windshield.  The rear window did not deflect rounds enough to miss the man size target in the drivers seat.  The windshield did not deflect the rounds enough to miss the human target 12 feet in front of the bumper.

Behavioral Programming

Behavioral Programming Kelly AlwoodYears ago hackers tried to devise a system of tricking people into giving them information with the intention of hacking into their computers.  Recently pick up artists have developed a system of making themselves desirable to others.  Con men have used lies and phsycology for decades to deceivetheir victimsKelly Alwood.

Hackers devised “social engineering” to accomplish their goals.  Its basically a way to trick people into thinking you are someone that you are not, with the goal of giving them confidential information.  There isreally not much to this approach.  Pick up artists have actually done a lot of research and development on their tactics.  These tactics do work, but the scope of this approach is very limited, and with a narrowly difined goal.  Short term results (and relationships) are achieved with this tactic.  Con men simply use lies to get what they want.

Behavioral Programming is different.  It is a way to get people to change their behavior and interaction with you.  It is a way to make strong, lasting friendships, get warmer results from strangers, strengthen your current relationships and change everyone in your workplace.

This research was started years ago with the original intent of teaching US Special Operations Forces, Security Contractors and others in fields of high risk for being compromised and alone in a hostile land.  We needed a way for them to solicit help fast, and probably from indiginous persons.  Gaining the help from strangers could be the key to their survival.  The system must be effective and fast, and last.

Kevin Reeve and I started teaching this in our UrbanEscape and Evasion classes to US Special Operations personnel.  Kevin came up with the first set of rules, and we tested them out.  They worked beautifully.  As the program developed, I started to make notes of behavior modifiers that were consistent throughout our society.  My notes kept expanding until I had enough to actually fill a book.

I am currently working to finish the book.  The content is original and unique.  I have never seen these things printed before, or even spoken of at a seminar.  Thats why I am writing a book.  To share new information to help you make friends, change behavior, and get the results you want out of people.  The backdrop to all of these strategies is honesty and real intent.  You can make friends out of strangers, get the promotion, make lasting friendships just the way you are.  You dont have to be fake or pretent to be something your not to get the results you want.  You just need to know some do’s and dont’s, and know what makes people happy.

You will see some tips posted here, and the complete book will be out shortly.

Kelly Alwood’s Behavioral Programming is different.  Its the all natural approach to getting what you want.
