Once again, we decided to use our time on the range to answer some more questions and perhaps bust some more myths regarding firearms and what is and is not safe to use as protection.
Today, we take a look at a motorcycle helmet. Now these things are meant to take a lot of force, saving the skulls of countless accident victims per year and putting up with forces of heads hitting the pavement at over 60 MPH. Now that is a lot of hitting power on a large area, but will the helmet hold up to a .380 caliber bullet fired at it?
The short answer is… no. Even a small caliber handgun bullet will cut through the helmet like butter. So if you were ever thinking of making any super armor, make sure that you are not using motorcycle helmets to protect your noggin.
