Beer is Bulletproof?

Rednecks and preppers rejoice! Turns out, enough beer can be used to stop a a bullet, including a .50 cal Desert Eagle.

In a new YouTube series I can get behind, Bulletsafe vests is publishing a series on how “bulletproof” certain objects are. The series kicks off with this beer episode and fortunately, they use cheap Miller Lite. I’m curious if any other beer would stop a bullet faster, especially Guinness?

    It looks like that video was made at the Lapeer Pit.

      The 18’s have Detroit Tigers logos.

        Ah yea, I see that now. I looked up BulletSafe and it looks like they are based out of Troy, MI. So the video was very likely taken at the Lapeer Pit.

      I happened to be there while he was filming. Yes it’s the Pit. And he even let me shoot the Deagle.

    I dont see any beer in that video. Just Miller Lite.

    I love the loosely veiled advertising of tfb. Maybe slightly less obvious than 99% of Katie A.’s press releases, I mean “articles”.

    • TheNotoriousIUD

      The sites gotta make money somehow. You dont have to actually shoot any beer or buy anything.

          Maybe you should.
          I mean some of the post are more advertising than article. I don’t have a problem with it. Most adults can tell the difference.

            “Most adults can tell the difference”

            Are you sure?

            Define “adult”.

      Post cool viral style marketing video to share with our readers = “Yo bro, quit advertising! I don’t want you making money off my clicks.”

      Chill out man, 99.9999% of the stuff on here is just interesting crap we come across that we want to share with you guys. No need to be a douche about it.

        Did you just really call one of the readers a douche? Probably leave that to us. Looks kinda bad when the staff start insulting readers even if they are a douche.

          Thanks Dad.

          • Dan

            No problem my child.

      • angrymike

        Exactly Patrick, I got a chuckle out of it…….. 😉

  • anomad101

    Enough beer and I feel bulletproof, have yet to test that belief.

    • angrymike

      Here’s an idea, please don’t try it at home….. ;-D

        But if you do, make sure you record it.
