Have you ever wondered if your household items could withstand the impact of a bullet? We put some common household objects to the test in order to find out just how durable they really are. Join us as we delve into the world of bullet impact testing and discover which everyday items can stand up to the challenge.
Testing the Durability of Household Items: Can They Withstand Bullet Impact?
As preppers, it’s important to consider the durability and strength of our household items in the event of an emergency or disaster scenario. In some cases, these items may need to withstand bullet impact if we find ourselves in a dangerous situation. In this article, we’ll be testing the durability of common household items to see how they hold up against bullet impact.
The Testing Process
We used a variety of household items to test their durability, including a refrigerator, a bookshelf, a trash can, a wooden table, and a ceramic vase. We conducted the test using a 9mm handgun, and each item was shot from a distance of 10 feet.
Here are the results of our testing:
The refrigerator did not fare well in our test, with the bullet easily penetrating the metal exterior and causing significant damage to the interior. While the refrigerator may provide some cover in a pinch, it should not be relied upon as a primary means of protection.
The bookshelf held up better in our test, with the bullet causing superficial damage to the outside of the wood but failing to penetrate through to the other side. A bookshelf may be a useful form of cover in an emergency, but it’s important to note that it won’t provide full protection.
The trash can provided surprising protection in our test, with the bullet failing to penetrate the thick plastic exterior. While we don’t recommend relying solely on a trash can for protection, it may be a useful makeshift barrier in an emergency scenario.
The wooden table held up quite well in our test, with the bullet failing to penetrate the wood and causing only superficial damage. A sturdy wooden table may be a useful form of cover in an emergency scenario.
The ceramic vase shattered immediately upon impact, providing no protection whatsoever. It’s important to avoid relying on fragile household items such as vases as a means of protection in any scenario.
In conclusion, our testing showed that while some household items may provide more protection than others, none of them can be relied upon as a primary means of protection against bullet impact. It’s important for preppers to invest in specialized equipment and supplies to ensure adequate protection and preparedness in the event of an emergency or disaster scenario.
