Box O' Truth #34 - Bullet Proof Wallboard
- Page 1
recently got a message from my friend Pighelmet.
He said that he had a piece of bullet-proof
material and would I like to shoot it.
Whadda you think?
When I got it from the Brown Truck O' Happiness,
I took a look at it. It was about 14 inches
square and a little over 1/4 inch thick.
I sent him a message and asked for all the
details he had.
you have there Don is a true piece of "Ballistic
Nylon". That is the same material that
is sandwiched into interior walls for sensitive
areas. They sometimes add two or three sheets
of that together to increase the bullet
resistance. Two of those together I was
told, equal Level V protection. That is
what I was told.
I don't know if that particular piece was
made by Dow, but I suspect that it was.
They used a special "wet" saw
to cut it into shape, and it makes and awful
goop that stinks. I had to blast that one
with water at the car wash to get the goop
off. That's about all I know about the stuff.
Be safe, I don't know how flexible that
stuff is, and I would really hate to see
a bullet bounce back at you guys."
Well, that makes 3 of us.
Let's see what we can see.
is about 1/3 inches think.
built a small stand to support it and placed
a piece of 1/4 inch plywood behind it to
give it some support.
First, we will start small.
How about a .22 pistol?
made a pretty good "dent" in the
front, but did not penetrate.
