    My sources are NOT wiki sources. They are from numerous books in my library that state that Thor IS bulletproof and/or highly resistant to conventional injury. As I have posted previously, bullets are conventional weaponry, so it stands to reason that bullets would not do jack. It should also be considered (also as I have previously posted) the his physiology is many times more dense, so yet again what would a bullet  (or many bullets) really do to him other than to really piss him off.

Your source sure look like a Marvel universe source. That being said, since current Thor was never what was discussed anyway his current stats are rather irrelevant. Here was his OHOTMU as we could see it back then:

Strength: Thor possesses Class 100 strength, enabling
him to lift (press) over 100 tons. Thor's strength is
doubled when he wears his enchanted belt of strength. Known
superhuman powers: Thor possesses the superhuman physical
attributes of an Asgardian, but as the son of Odin, lord of
the Asgardians, and Jord, elder goddess of the Earth, his
strength, endurance, and resistance to injury are greater
than those of the vast majority of his race. Like all
Asgardians, Thor is extremely long-lived (although not
immortal like the Olympians) superhumanly strong (the
average Asgardian male can lift about 30 tons over his head;
Thor can lift over 100 tons above his own), is immune to all
Earthly diseases, and is resistant to conventional injury.
(Asgardian flesh and bone is about three times as dense as
similar human tissue, contributing to the Asgardians'
superhuman strength and weight.) Thor's Asgardian metabolism
gives him far greater than human endurance at all physical

Again, like I said before, being resistant to conventional injury with tissues 3x denser than humans is hardly a strong evidence of complete bulletproofness like we can now see.

PS. I also provide another old Thor entry scan. 

Yeah, I have that. I also have the OHMU deluxe ed., Marvel Encyclopedia 2002 (states 6 durability: Superhuman (bulletproof =5)),  Marvel Encyclopedia 2006: Powers- Near Invulnerability. All my sources are pre- Modern Thor, there are others that I have, but these were at hand currently.
