Inventor Tom Nardone shot the BulletSafe Baseball Cap above with two calibers (.22 and .40 FMJ) at five feet. The bullet resistant vest guy designed the Cap because police helmets violated his fashion sense. No seriously . . .
“The initial spark occurred at a trade show when I was repeatedly asked if we made ballistic helmets,” his Kickstarter come-on reveals. “I thought ‘yuck! I don’t want to make those, they look ridiculous in a civilian environment.’ But ignoring a number of customers is always a bad idea. [Ed: especially when they’re armed.] I decided to develop something different.”
Which would be a lot more appealing without the words BulletSafe on the side. “People have already spoken on that,” Tom tells TTAG, revealing that the final hat will be logo-less. “It’ll save me 60 cents.” Still, you pays your money, you takes your chances. Even if you’re wearing the cap, “it’s gonna hurt.”
