This is what it's like to be shot at with an AK-47

I wonder if it would finally give if you unloaded 30 rounds into it.

Got balls? This CEO sure as hell does! What better advertisement or product testing is better than putting your own life on the line to show your belief in your company and its products? Nothing.

Kinda curious. Wasn't the shooter kind of close to accurately test the glass ? Granted the stuff is tough either way, but I thought a rifle bullet needed a longer distance to get punching power ?

Edit- I can't spell at 6 am it seems ..

If by "balls" you mean intentionally challenging your own damn fate ,yes.

Obviously they know the boundaries of their product,but you never know what kind of .... may happen.

That's what actual product testing is for.Anything else is just advertising and psychology (especially when talking about guns).

A bullet is fastest when it leaves the barrel, therefore has the most momentum, and will hit the hardest.

The shooter practiced poor discipline. He had the safety glasses on his head, and yet still forgot to put them on.

And yet his boss didn't get killed. I kid. I'd buy one of those windshields if someone were to start shooting at me with an AK-47.

Don't try this at home. It's okay at the workplace though.

I want to try that with my boss



...........minus the windshield.


On a sane note, that was pretty cool. Seems to work but how many shots will it withstand.

The project that I'm working on is so secret... Even I don't know what I'm doing!

I guarantee they tested the product EXTENSIVELY before they pulled this stunt.

This, but even still not many CEO's would do that.

I don't care how much testing was done that is still extremely irresponsible on both shooter and shooties part. Way to be a tough guy. Wish it would've failed just because they are both dumb.

I also love to criticize people by saying I wish they would stop living, causing incredible grief to many people, because I don't know them, therefore who cares

Not only that, but I wouldn't be surprised if the glass they used in that video was of a slightly beefier quality than that of their normal product.
