‘Captain Louisiana’ Gets Himself Some


Captain America: Civil War, the Marvel comic-book flick, is in theaters now, so speed-shooter Jerry Miculek takes a page from the movie and dons a tight Captain America costume to find out if a replica titanium Captain America shield will fight off .45 ACP rounds fired from a 1911 pistol. With his quick trigger finger and incredible-slow-motion camera, Miculek hammers the shield with eight shots.

Then, in Part II, he sees if the shield itself can become an offensive — rather than solely defensive — weapon in “real life.”
