This could be the ultimate test of a bulletproof vest.
Have you ever wondered if a bulletproof vest could stop an arrow? If it can stop a bullet, an arrow shouldn't be a problem, right?
Well, wonder no more. These folks have tested one with both a compound bow and a crossbow.
Watch the results and see for yourself.
The compound had a Muzzy broadhead, which appeared to only poke the skin. I'd consider that a success.
However, the crossbow had quite a bit more penetration. In fact, it could've been potentially fatal. Without a bulletproof vest, however, both shots would've been a clean pass-through at that shooting distance.
