“In the world of executive protection it is of great importance to see how quickly you could become fully operational again after being shot from close range”, Robert Kaiser says after personally being shot, testing their new covert bullet proof vests.
A high definition video has now been made available on YouTube, highlighting the CEO of PPSS Body Armour being shot from approx 9 feet or 3 meters.
The shot was fired from a Glock 19 handgun, using 9x19mm FMJ 124gr ammunition.
Robert Kaiser is one of the very first men in this industry who has decided to ‘put his money where his mouth is’.
“I have seen many body armour companies making astonishing claims, so I decided to offer real physical evidence using live ammunition” he says.
Robert explained in great depth and personally ensured this video was not produced to create any type of tough guy image, and it should also not be seen a disregard to human life.
Having viewed the video, it is fair to say that all reasonable and necessary precautions have been taken prior to the production. One of the country’s leading trauma nurse was present, paramedics were on stand by and an IV was prepared in order to infuse essential drugs in case something did go wrong.
