ballistic

$150,000?  Yea maybe back in the 90s:

Those rims though.  That’s some Master P shit right there UHHHHHHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.  If someone gave that car to me, I’d push it so hard necks would be breaking as I rolled down the street.

Testing bulletproof glass and panels with a live person is so useless, but companies and people who appear to have nothing to lose insist on doing it.

Mercedes-s600-Bulletproof-TestI had a bunch of other posts I was going to link to here where people did stupid stuff with body armor and bullet proof glass, but big surprise all the videos disappeared off YouTube.

The guys in the video are from the car website The Smoking Tire.

Thoughts?  Do you think the claim of “bullet proof” physically needs to be backed up by a person?

What happens when you shoot a bag of chips:

Mattv2099-Shooting-Potato-ChipsI actually never even had that question… but I feel like a better person knowing the answer.  Thanks Mattv2099! :P

Should have put a container of Heluva Good Dip on the bayonet for a finale!  *sigh* Missed trollportunities

Thoughts?

Taofledermaus contemplates diabetes or shooting at it:

giant-gummy-bearI would have taken shooting at it as well.  Well, I might have licked it once first. mmmmmm Red.

hahha all the talk about entry wound and wound channel.

Thoughts? Any of you guys ever do something similar? Gummy bears in the door panels on your car?

Because getting shot in the bare face would suck:

Redneck Science (my favorite) – Testing the mask:

Check out the full process over at The Poct Apoc blog.

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 saw the cat to his right, and I was bracing for a Boondock Saints type incident.
