Attempting to use a Glock as a one-time handcuff key with a universal adapter (VIDEO)

A familiar trope seen on screens big and small is to shoot apart a pair of handcuffs to free someone when a key isn’t available, but how realistic is that?

In the above test, Edwin Sarkissian uses a set of Smith & Wesson M100s cuffs, which are pretty standard in LE use, and kind of ironic as the test gun is a Glock. However, barring luck, it looks like the best way to open a set is to invest in a 99-cent standard handcuff key rather than a 99-cents worth of ammo — from a handgun anyway.
