Armored Car CEO Sits In SUV While Shot At With AK-47
Company outfits cars with bullet-proof windshields and more
This CEO is so confident that his product will protect buyers from gun fire that he will literally stand behind it.
Trent Kimball, CEO of Texas Armoring Corporation, sat in the driver's seat of a Mercedes-Benz SUV while the company's sales and export compliance manager fired several rounds from an AK-47 assault rifle directly at the windshield. Kimball, a former 'special agent' who worked for the U.S. in Latin America in the 1970s, doesn't even flinch as several rounds connect with, but don't shatter, the windshield. That's because the windshield is made of two inch thick bullet-proof glass. Cars outfitted by Texas Armoring also get run flat tires and layers of ballistic resistant armoring throughout the body.
On the company's website, they claim their armored cars can deter kidnapping and violent crimes. With, as they claim, ransoms typically costing "... $500,000 to $3,000,000 with no guarantees of survival" Texas Armoring Corporation's expensive service seems like a steal. The company can reinforce everything for the paranoid consumer, from cars and trucks to limos and even personal carriers.
