The BulletSafe Bulletproof Shield passes the strictest requirements for a ballistic shield in the USA. This report from the NIJ-approved test laboratory, Oregon Ballistics Labs, shows our shield passing the test. It was a complete pass. The BulletSafe Bulletproof Shield was shot with 5 rounds each from both a 9mm and a .44 Magnum, and none of the shots penetrated the shield. This means that it meets the requirements for a NIJ Level IIIA protection rating. So, while our shield is significantly less expensive than other shields, there is no compromise in ballistic protection.
