Practical Body Armor Test

Ever wonder what the 9mm would do against a real bullet proof vest? We're going to find out. I'm going to shoot a vest in good but expired condition with a 9mm and then a 40SW on one side then shoot it with a .45 on the other side. Next we'll see how it holds up to a .223 (not well, I would assume) as well as a .308.

We're also going to see how well a make shift vest works. START COLLECTING SHOPPING BAGS. Those plastic bags you get at the grocery store. You're going to need 30 of them to build a make shift ballistic shield. We're also going to test them so the more people that bring bags, the more we'll be able to test. Also make sure you bring some good duct tape or packing tape.

What to bring:

30 plastic shopping (store) bags

1 roll of duct tape or clear packing tape
