Hmm, doesn't seem it went all the way through. Maybe we should issue HDD as body armor to our soldiers. Not really though, but making armor that repels bullets would be nice. There is always the drawback of the positive charge and the soldiers go flying toward the nearest metal object.

Man, I have one of the old hard drives, like the 5.25"-ers, I would love to shoot that thing. I don't even know if it spins any more.

Haha its not a problem of getting drives, it's getting up to shoot them. I'd like to see a normal range allow me to shoot one.

I think mine is sighted in for 100 yards... that or I suck majorly ^_^
