Video: Body armor vs. medieval weapons

A German slingshot expert tested how well police-grade body armor stands up to blowguns, crossbows and more

German slingshot expert Joerg Sprave recently made a video demonstrating how well police-grade body armor holds up against medieval weapons.

From crossbows to blowguns to "zombie hammers," nothing Sprave tested was a firearm. The vest he used was a German police ballistic model rated to protect against handgun ammo and knives.

Only the throwing knife slingshot managed to cut through it, according to Guns.com
