    Wow, this guy doesn't even blink when he takes multiple rounds to the chest. Maybe I ought to rethink a bigger caliber. :tongueout:

    I don't know if I trust the guy doing the shooting though. :whistling:

    You can thank Hollywood for making the populace think that a rifle/large pistol round will knock someone back 10 feet.

    Just OK
    Talk about standing behind your product! I wouldn't care to do it, but the guys have gumption.

    "Gumption" is certainly one way to put it. I hope he is wearing a cup. The shooter seems a little sloppy.

    Where are those rounds going after hitting the vest? It looks like the other people in the room were in more danger than him.
     
  8. It doesn't look like that plate covers the upper torso.

    Kind of reminiscent of body armor pioneer Richard Davis, of Second Chance, standing on one foot while another guy shot him with a .308 rifle years ago.
