The CEO of Texas Armoring Corporation trusts the products of his company more than anything else.

He put the bulletproof car armor built by his company to the ultimate test.

In a daring demonstration, he willingly became the target of an AK-47 assault, aiming to showcase the unparalleled safety of his armored vehicles.

This bold move not only grabbed attention but also sparked discussions about the lengths some will go to prove their product’s reliability.

The video was uploaded on Instagram by an account called entrepreneurshipquote.

The CEO of the company, R. Trent Kimball, can be seen sitting behind the glass shield as another person fires rounds from an AK-47.

The glass appears to sustain significant damage from the outside, but it absorbs the shock completely, keeping Mr. Kimball safe from the attack.

The video continues, and now, R. Trent Kimball sits in the driver’s seat of a bulletproof Mercedes-Benz for the second round of the test.

The man firing the AK-47 takes a total of 12 rounds of windscreen.

Obviously, the windscreen is totally damaged from the outside, but its impact on the inside is absolutely zero, except for the fact that the visibility is hindered due to the damage to the glass.

And if you think Mr. Kimball might be hiding behind the seat while the AK-47 tries to shatter the glass, think again.

Through a camera fitted inside, he can be seen sitting confidently in the driver’s seat, not even flinching as the bullets hit the windshield.

That’s all because he trusts in his brand.

Texas Armoring Colombia has been in the bulletproofing business since 1970, and now they have built their trust globally.

So the next time you witness a luxury car with a super sturdy windshield and high-tech security, remember that maybe Texas Armoring Corporation is the one guaranteeing its safety.

After all, we’ve seen it works.
