Not DragonSkin Armor’s Secret: Hockey Pucks

Okay, I was a little bit sarcastic in the title, but the idea behind Dragon Skin armor is to use overlapping discs of armor. That said, I would hope that they would not use a hockey puck as the basis of the armor, as it fails miserably in defeating either a .30 carbine round or a wax slug from a 12 gauge. Taofledermaus hits the puck with both and has slow motion of it to boot.

Enjoy the carnage below. I promise it is better than watching a hockey game.

    It is pretty clearly a 9mm in the video, not a .30 carbine. Looks like a Citadel M-1 9mm.

      This. TFB reporting quality seems to have been going downhill recently.

      The guy in the video even says it’s a 9mm!

      Anybody have one of those? I think they’re interesting, considering that I’ll probably never find a Camp 9, but I wonder if they’re gimmicky and therefore unreliable.

      Also, not to pile on, but that is clearly a 9mm round just from the screenshot. And he says so.

        Don’t have one, but they have a lot of cheap plastic parts on them.

        I was interested too when they were coming out until I read more reviews.

          Hmm, good to know, thanks.

    I’ve seen much better hockey games, you gotta get out more.

      I prefer playing hockey over watching hockey.

    If they are looking for something to test for its bullet resistance, they could try UHMW (ultra high molecular weight) polyethylene. It’s not cheap (though not prohibitively expensive) but it has a pretty high toughness to cost ratio.
