You’ve seen the movies. The action hero lands a couple of well-aimed shots on the gas tank. Boom! You get an explosion of massive proportion.
Examining a particular scene from the remake of the James Bond film Casino Royale, the Mythbusters decide to conduct a few experiments. The first experiment is lower scale, utilizing only a few different hand guns and a basic propane tank. The second experiment ups the ante by launching incendiary rounds from a gatling gun.
Watch the video to find out whether or not a propane tank will explode with the impact of a bullet.
