Thread: Is it bulletproof?

  1. Is it bulletproof?

    We thought we would try making some videos of everday objects being shot to see if they are "Bulletproof" or can at least stop a bullet. So for the fisrt episode we thought we would start with a bowling ball. Check it out and see if a bowling ball could save your life when bullets and bowling balls start to fly.

    Tell me what you think or tell us what we should try next. Hope you enjoy!

    I think if you put a little more effort into this you could get a viral thing going... like these guys... Will It Blend? | Presented By Blendtec

    I would like to see the following...
    Side of Beef - like the ones Rocky works out with
    Bed Mattress - maybe a regular one and one of those memory foam ones
    Sobokawa pillow
    Shamwow
    Softball/Baseball
    A toilet bowl


    Good luck!

    This may be on the practical side, but how about items that one would try to hide behind if one were shot at?
    Maybe how many layers of wood or brick (like a house) that various caliber rounds would, or would not go through.
    How about a car tire?
    I was going to say a kevlar vest, but I understand that would be a pricey target!

    I was given a piece of polycarbonate that the DOD uses in a couple of vehicle. It's an inch and a quarter thick. It stopped 38s, 357s, 9mm, 45s, a 44 Mag cracked it. 7.62 x 39 and 5.56 NATO went right thru it.

    If you want to really shoot at some thing that will take the impact, Boron Carbide.

  7. The rifle was a .308 and the first two shot that did very little were 44 magnums. But the 44 mag was just lead ball ammo not jacketed

    Next time you are scrounging around the scrap yard pick up a few pieces of steel plating. Take it home, clean it up, prime, and paint it or wall paper it then prop it up against the wall for ascetic value. It will look like a Japanese room divider if attached to another and no one will suspect that you have a deflector shield you can sit next to your door. Lean it a bit and it will take many hits without ANY penetration. If you have a display adjacent to the door simply slide it between it and the wall. Out of sight but still functional. Just a thought--I would never do such a paranoid thing--someone might think I was a nut job.
    Being a housemover I have lots of Oak timbers stacked on the lot that could easily be used for all kinds of duties--just in case the zombies get loose--LOL.

    I would prefer the Oak to the steel plate. I have several steel plates like the highways departments use when the roads get opened up for utility work.

    The problem I see with steel plates is the unpredictability of ricochets, diferent calibers and different loads can go just about any where. Or have a frangible hit the plate at close range, then you get splattered.

    The oak will take hits and not always deflect them off. General they end up in the wood.
