Kinetic Cell Phone Disposal

Widener's has a neat post up as to will a Cell Phone Stop A Bullet?

In proper Widener's fashion, they scientifically smacked cell phones with a variety of calibers: 7.62x39mm, .45 ACP, 9x19mm, and .22LR and report on the results, complete with video.

As you likely may have guessed, the result is unsurprising:  

Don't rely on cell phones for ballistic protection. Just don't.

The upside: Once you're sufficiently frustrated with your phone and you replace it, you can send off the old model to Valhalla with a .22lr.  Just be sure to clean up the range, and leave no pieces behind when you're done.
