Bulletproof Thermos? Demo Ranch Tests Product Claims

I’m sure you’ve been shopping for an insulated beverage container and noticed its claim to have survived speeding bullets — although the label shows a speeding cartridge, which is kind of weird. When this happens, it naturally sparks a question: Is this really a bulletproof Thermos?
Well, that’s what Demolition Ranch decided to find out. You can check it out in the video below but do yourself a favor and skip the first 2:15 unless you just like dumb stuff and/or shameless self-promotion.
When he tests the claims that the Stanley Thermos is truly bulletproof, he starts with 22 LR subsonic, then moves upwards to 9mm Luger, 45 ACP, and even a 12 gauge sabot slug, followed by 12 gauge 00 buck shot, of course.
Spoiler alert: The bulletproof Thermos ain’t. But naturally, penetration does vary according to what’s being used to shoot it.
In addition to buying dozens of Thermos bottles and Kel-Tec scatterguns for playing with in public (public videos anyhow), maybe Matt needs to save a buck or two so he can buy a Sharpie or a good ol’ Magic Marker. Then he could number the Thermos bottles so he knows which ones were lined up in first, second, third, and so on.
But you know how he is. Silly, goofy, and flaky all apply. Also ‘successful,’ so he must be doing something right.
Well, check it out below, and if you enjoyed this post about the bulletproof Thermos, please share it with your friends.
