It's the ultimate challenge. In one corner, we have the iPhone 4. This masterpiece of mobile design represents the cadillac of smartphones. Distinctive, functional (unless you hold it wrong) and always fashionable.

In the other corner, we have the Barrett M82A1. This famed sniper rifle can put a round of .50 BMG down the range at 2,799 feet per second. It has an effective range of 1,800 metres and a barrel length of 29 inches. Now, here's the question some gun nuts with a $10,000 rifle decided to ask; can an iPhone 4 stop a Barrett? (DailyMobile)

The answer, unsurprisingly, is no. This is definitely the most creative iPhone destruction we've seen yet. I'm guessing anyone who can spend thousands and thousands of dollars on a hilariously impractical rifle has $500 for a phone kicking around.
