A Ukrainian body armor manufacturer is so convinced in the protective capabilities of his product that he is willing to wear it while being shot with a rifle.
The new video was recently uploaded by the Ukrainian body armor manufacturing company UARM. The video description indicates that the company’s director is the one taking the challenge somewhere in the woods near Kiev.
The man not only trusts his company’s products with his life, but also the rifleman who has to take the shot. After the round impacts, he removes the plate to show that the bullet was unable to penetrate.
The marketing stunt is surely effective, but the risk is great. Bullets often do unpredictable things. While the ballistic plate may be of the highest quality, the projectile itself may shatter, haw, or separate from its jacket, sending unexpected deadly shards into the arms, neck, or groin… but, hey, it worked.
