Actually the force behind most of the rounds would likely severely injure or kill you anyway. That said, if I was on a deadly (presumably Japanese) gameshow or something and someone had to shoot me in the face, i’d take my chances with the mask.
I love how the base of the ballistic mask is an ebay purchased vintage street hockey Jason style mask. haha
I’ve never heard what the author said about Aluminum doing a good job of slowing bullets down. It’s an awfully soft metal… could be true though, what do I know?
LOL the end of the article where he goes to the grocery store at the end to weigh the mask and buy a watermelon. Priceless…
Because the real science and data apparently isn’t good enough, this guy does it twice:
Testing with actual people appears to be very common with body armor and ballistic glass. Those links are two previous examples. I have posted others, but they usually end up getting deleted because the person gets ridiculed.
Maybe I’m just gullible, but if someone tells me something like “This airbag will deploy when ___________” or “this drop safety on your Glock will prevent it from being fired when _________” I don’t have the urge to smash my car into a tree or start throwing my Glock around to see for myself.
Anyone into doing these crazy tests on themselves?
Not sure what this proves, besides that this guy is an idiot:
Yea we get it.. the trauma plates are rated for 7.62mm. They were developed and tested safely by engineers and scientists in a lab, so no one would have to attempt retarded crap like this in their parents living room. I hope his mom sees this and grounds him.
I wouldn’t do anything like this, under any circumstance, with any shooter, with any rifle:
I don’t care if the late Carlos Hathcock wanted to shoot at a plate I was holding 10 ft away from him… it wouldn’t happen.
Despite the Army Safety Center tags on the bottom, I’m positive this is fake. All the “actors” in it sound too scripted, and the Afgan guy in the navy hat has a stupid grin on his face the whole time. My guess is what went down is the first round was possibly real, and fired into the dirt, or they planted a small explosive charge in the dirt. The 2nd round, a blank. I’m not going to get into any sound spectrum analysis but if you listen to the first shot at 0:41 then jump to the 2nd shot at 1:11 they sound diferent.
