Ballistic Testing

(September 19, 2012)

Well, it had to happen - we eventually got around to doing those important ballistic tests required for any South African product.

As a brief summary - our BigChess sets a good for cover if you are being shot at with birdshot but no good for cover from an attack with 0.22, 9mm handguns or No 1 shot from a 20 gauge shotgun.
