My vises are made by Panavise, a U.S. Company.  The one with the wide jaws is the model 350.  The smaller one is the model 301. Both have the 312 Base mount – www.panavise.com



  1. Blam Blam  Freeze put the gun down!! Now!!! Just a sec officer I HAVE to bust this lock!! Blam Blam Blam . Sigh. Hey, can I borrow a magazine from ya officer? Man, move aside! Blam Blam Blam. You got to be kidding me. See, this is a lock from hell or something!! Patrolman what is going on here? Sargent, check out this lock!!! You tender foots need a real weapon for that! Check this out .454 Casull!! BLAM BLAM BLAM!!! I'll be darned. (over radio) Sargent what is your status? Ahh Sir we may need SWAT down here…. . Non Sibi, Sed Patriae

  2. Just for laughs, I would have liked to see what 7.62x39mm and 5.45x39mm would do to a Master Lock padlock. If I had my 'druthers', I'd settle for the 7.62×39. I'm a fan of hitting things with bigger, heavier bullets myself. :-)

    Soldering iron, if I had to guess. Pretty radical modification to the standard G19, or any Glock for that matter.

    You do know that there is a huge difference in a 9mm Parabellum, a .357 SIG and a .357 Magnum right? I could make a huge post going into the details but I hope I don't have to. So for now… long story really short: The Imperial measurement system is highly inaccurate compared to the Metric system.

    That being said, I wonder how locks would react to a 5,7mm (P90 and Five-seveN) P90 being well adapted to modern day special forces & breach teams.
    Not used by such teams but still makes me wonder. How about the .50 AE (Desert Eagle) and ofcourse it's big brother the .50 BMG, because… go big or go home.

    Also, on the 12 guage shotgun video, you should've used a slug.

  5. Boxotruth.com has whole series if handgun and rifles vs locks. All his held except 12ga Brennecke hard cast german slug which blew lock to pieces. 5.56mm and 7.62mm both failed. A hard cast 45/70 or 454 casull pistol w belt Mountian penetrator load would likely take a lock apart. 

  6. Absolutely. I have an idea…it involves ridicule, humiliation and embarrassment directed @ ML Corp. I'll work on it & see if we can turn it into a funny video.

  7. You know, Commando lock should have a few new items by that time. You could do some testing on those 😉 Im sure Patrick would love to see it as well. 🙂

  8. Eric, I'm taking your comment as an official request from a foreign government… Damn you! Now I have to figure out another experiment to use those weapons…;) Give me a little time – you will see them – but not against a lowly Master Lock. Let's wait until Spring when it warms up a little.

  9. "Aside from a mini-gun or M203 Grenade Launcher (yes, I have access to both)"

    You are going to state that and NOT bring them to the range? Cmmon man, this is youtube! 😀

  10. Hell man, the 9mm IS the .357 magnum! I an NOT going back to the range to shoot a .357 magnum dude… I'm not even sure they still MAKE that old, antiquated caliber, do they?

  11. I think you technically bumped the second lock open!

    I knew 9mm was good for _something_… kind of a loud bump key, though.

    Where's the .357 Magnum??
