The reviews seem to be mixed… some say it’s the best thing ever, and some say it lets in too much light. For only $10 over at Amazon it might be worth a try though if you’re in the market for something like this.
I for one much prefer pitch black, than even a bit of light in the room… but if I’m tired enough it really doesn’t matter. Apparently operators in operations use these things, but I can not confirm that.
I’ll probably put mine on and hang upside down from the roof, field stripping my Glock over and over again while heavy metal music is on to try and distract me. The usual gun blogger type ops…
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…
