Apparently, fire hydrants are only bullet-resistant to a degree (VIDEOS)

Edwin Sarkissian acquired a surplus yellow fireplug and proceeded to take a stab at penetrating the heavy cast casing with some high-end rifles to include a .50 cal and a 20mm

The 20mm, a giant Serbu single-shot action, attempts to Swiss cheese said hydrant with Mark Serbu on hand to offer tips and various loads with resulting shrapnel and camera damage.

With a bit of meat left on the bone, they try a .50 cal BMG follow-up to see if the smaller caliber can hold its own after softening it up with a few lesser firearms. All in all, interesting information if you ever get into a debate on whether a fire hydrant is cover or concealment.
