At Law Shield, we have often wondered how bulletproof regular objects are — sheetrock, plywood, car doors, windshields. Now the folks at BulletSafe are finding out.

In a new YouTube video series, BulletSafe President Tom Nardone shoots a 50-caliber round from a Desert Eagle into one of his company’s vests, then compares the vest’s performance to other things — such as plywood.

“I think people forget how powerful handguns really are and how much energy a bulletproof vest must stop. There aren’t many objects out there that will stop a bullet,” says Nardone, or Tom as he’s identified in the video below.

As always, Law Shield does not endorse BulletSafe’s products, and we don’t recommend that our members go and try this themselves.
