I just watched a show on the Military Channel where two guys used a Bang Stick shot from an Archer's Bow or "Atlatl ancient weapon" into a Armored Breast Plate -- the kind from Mid-Evil Knights Days ie 1400-1700s!!! They used several different calibers and it was pretty damn effective. It was filmed in upstate New York and also in Las Vegas, Nevada.

I just found the show but they did not show their modern day scientist and his creative weapon using the "Bang Stick" explosive heads -- too Bad !!

Weapon Masters Shorts: Atlatl vs. Steel

Mike tests the Atlatl might against Spanish armor.

Hopefully the videos will be updated or you'll can see it on TV later this month.

Interesting as I just read "Without Remorse" by Clancy. The character John Clark killed a drug dealer with a bang stick.

I too wondered about how it would be classed.
