Opening a safety pin the .22 way (VIDEO)

Walter Hunt invented the safety pin in 1849 to pay off a $15 debt to a friend. Want to see one opened with a .22LR?

For those who say yes to anything trick shot related, 22Plinkster has said feat on tap in the above short. Using a high-speed camera and multiple angles, he seeks to document the magic of barely grazing the side of the pin with the round to pop it open without blowing it away, leaving a still-working pin at the end of the shot.

No problem, right?
