Video: This Homemade Armor Actually Works Surprisingly Well


This homemade armor actually works!

Demolition Ranch has tested all sorts of stuff to see how well it would hold up as makeshift body armor with mixed results in the past.

But now, a viewer has sent him a simple piece of homemade armor, and surprisingly enough, it holds up really well. And that's saying something considering the damage Matt is known for dishing out!

Who would have thought something as simple as a horse stall mat, flex seal and a simple unhardened steel plate could stand up so well to small arms fire? Here I thought flex seal was only good for taping together a boat!

Granted, once you get into those heavier and larger rounds, the armor lost its effectiveness. But for a homemade project, it's pretty darn impressive stuff! Keep this simple design in mind for a SHTF scenario.

We also loved Demo Ranch's justifications for buying those new guns and not telling his wife. Let us know how those excuses work out for you Matt!
