Me too, me too. Its amazing the power hype has over people, the story grows about paintball masks being bulletproof(both JT and V-force have made this claim) and people buy right into it refusing to accept the truth. If I was going to fake a video, I'd make sure all my shots hit perfectly and there would be cooler melon explosions when the bullets hit them.
The sad thing is that people do fake stuff. Like this picture.
He claims to have shot that with a .40 at 5'. Having shot polycarbonate with actual bullets there is no way this is realas it would have definatly gone right thru, and the impacts don't match the way hits look in actual bulletproof lexan either. What ever he hit it with had low enough velocity to dent but not break the lens and the projectile didn't deform, my bet is he actually used a slingshot and steel ball bearings.
Here is an actual clear "bulletproof" shield
Its just alittle thicker than paintball lenses wouldn't you say.
Here is a bulletproof helmet(level IIIA I believe)
Here is a shot of a piece of Lexan which has been hit.
But yet the argument will go on forever since clearly companys would never lie or spread misinformation/inaccurate test results about stuff like that to further thier product sales to uninformed(read ignorant) youth.
I actually really respect Save Phace for strait up saying that lenses aren't bulletproof, its nice to use products from an honest company.
