    I suppose it comes down to what you mean by "proof" and resistant. If you say that Thor is bulletproof, that means no bullet can ever penetrate his skin. So a 50 cal uranium slug, or let's just say adamantium even, is fired from a gun worthy of Cable, does that mean it's no threat to Thor? Also, I think that when you say bulletproof, it also means that bullets won't hurt him at all. Just because they can't penetrate his skin doesn't mean they won't sting.

You're exactly right! The debate should be if Thor is bullet-proof, or maybe just resitant to bullets. Some here are arguing that he could be killed by an ordinary conventional bullets- a la Wonder Woman. Now, conventional wisdom would tell you that a Heat-Seeking Missile has more destructive fire-power, and could just as easily pentrate an armored Tank as well 50 cal Uraniun slug.. Even further, a Gigantic Mortar Shell that could rip a Tank to shreds and could tear a gaping hole in the side of a BATTLE CRUISER- has potentially far more penetrating power than a 50 CA Uraniun slug- see Thor-#117..

    I can't see most small arms fire being of more than an annoyance to Thor, but saying he's bulletproof might not be completely accurate (what if he gets shot in the eyes?).

I really don't know the exact answer to that question, but Thor has taken direct hits by armored piercing shells, Nuclear Explosions, Blasts by the likes of Odin, Galctus, and the Celestials- and he never has suffered any grave injuries to any part of his body. Maybe, he would need Clear Eyes, or Visine to get rid of lead particles in his eyes, who knows?
