Manufacturer's comment regarding the above videos: the Alpha Shield was designed from the start to stop handgun cartridges only. It generally stops big, blunt, and lower velocity projectiles well. High velocity centerfire rifle cartridges like those used in assault and hunting rifles will penetrate the shield. For protection against rifle threats, please consider the Delta Shield or Bravo Shield.
