Dressing a water bottle in a bullet-resistant vest may not be a scientifically correct way to measure the impact of various rounds on the wearer, but it’s visually illustrative and certainly entertaining. The takeaway from BulletSafe’s promo video seems to be that taking a big boy round to the chest while protected by one of their products is roughly equal to absorbing a good rap with a rubber mallet or a Louisville Slugger. You’re probably going to have the breath knocked out of you and may very well end up on the deck, but it sure as hell beats a sucking check wound and critical organ damage. “Bullet proof” vests aren’t cheap, though, and most people figure that their odds of taking a round don’t warrant dropping that kind of coin, let alone the hassle and discomfort of wearing one on a regular basis. Would you buy one? Have you?
