What will Magnum shotgun slugs do to a Tyvek system of body armor? We’ve got just the guy to test it.

This video shows some special Tyvek targets (set up by Greg, TAOFLEDERMAUS’ test shooter) which included 200 layers. See what happens and whether it could serve as armor.

  1. Really? More auto-play videos? Is it so hard to have TAOFLEDERMAUS’ videos play though a YouTube player? Also, do none of TTAGs writers or editors read the comments saying we don’t want auto-play videos. It seems to all be coming from WideOpenSpaces, so either have them stop with the auto-play videos, or find someone else to re-post from other blogs and post substanceless product ads.

  2. When you post a video that clearly shows the results there’s really no need to make the headline a question. Unless this is just clickbait. At least you didn’t say “And see what happens at layer 88!”

    • Better title
      ” He shoots 200 layers of Tyvek with a 3″ magnum assault shotgun. When they get to layer 199 I’m blown away!”

  3. Remember when TTAG wasn’t a fucking clickbait site on top of having clickbait ads out the to yang? Pepperidge Farm remembers.

    Really need to remove this nonsense from my news feed. Anyone have a better… Well, bad phrasing. Anyone have a favorite better site?

    • Ummm…no I don’t remember. Been around for neatly 4 years and lurked longer. I RARELY click on video’s. And 3″ magnum slugs will leave a mark 😋

    • Danke Schoen.

      There’s no video on my screen, autoplay or otherwise.
      Apparently my internet protections are adequate.

  4. The answer my friend
    is Tyvek in the wind
    the answer is Tyvek in the wind

  5. What happens to internal organs even if this powerful slug were stopped by this stuff or whatever? Home invaders increasingly use body armor, from the cheap stuff to AR-500 plates. That’s why I bought two ARs and why I’m looking for something better to kill AR-500 plates.
