You know that the scenes of the movie where someone gets shot, but are they OK because there was a Bible or something in your pocket acting as body armor? Here’s a little experiment with the, uh, modern equivalent. Or maybe just an excuse to shoot a gun in a stack of iPhones.

Popular Mechanics found this little experiment orchestrated by EverythingApplePro, who put a lot of new iPhones and Samsung Galaxy in a line and summarily executed them with an AK-74 sports rifle utility gun.

But if you hate iPhones, or just love watching things destroy, jump at 03:10 when they take out the solid-slug-loaded 12-caliber shotgun.
