Gee - I thought you could get good cover behind a car door, you see it on TV all the time :)

A graphic demonstration on the difference between concealment and cover.

If the car door can take some speed off a bullet or keep a hollow point from opening up, it is probably better than nothing. Not bullet proof though.

I bet you can buff that out.
A little touch up paint and wax is all it needs. Maybe a rotary buffer would help....

Poor Dodge :(
Ive done the same to many old burned out cars and was surprised that even a .22 can penetrate a car door at c;ose range.(the fire may have changed the temper of the metal)
12ga slugs will pass clean through a car with no problem, and 00 buckshot is devastating at close range.
makes you think twice about using a car as cover. from what ive seen only the engine is reliable at stopping rounds consistently.
EDIT: did that truck have the 3.9L v6? I coulda used some parts if it did!

Be sure you do that from far away.
Its no fun when a .38 wadcutter bounces off the A-pillar and comes back and hits you in the chest. Ask me how I know.
Its scary how auto-body metal can send bullets off (and back!) at amazing angles.

That ain't going to buff out ...................

While back I made some very mild 38 special's for the wife and I to play with in small light revolvers. It was fun but a eye opener when a bullet flattened out on the end of a empty 55 gallon barrel. Only bounced a foot or two back but was a good lesson in remembering what your shooting with what. I remember a 12 gauge slug bouncing back, landing behind me and another guy one time several decades ago.
Take care guys.

Reminds me of a video I saw several years back about the "car hunt" that was held after the 1995 Burning Man event.
They took a 1970s Oldsmobile stationwagon, armored the engine compartment, hooked it up to radio control and drove it around the desert as people in chase vehicles drove after it shooting it.
