Rarely do I accept stuff from viewers. Occasionally people offer to send me stuff to use in my videos and more often than not I decline because I can usually just find it here and I don't feel comfortable with a viewer spending their money so I can make a video. I'm just as uncomfortable with Partner channels that have a "donate" link for viewers to send them money. Really?
A guy named "Jeremy" offered to send me some SAPI plates to me so I can shoot them. Ok, I had to Google it too. SAPI stands for "small arms protective insert". These plates are constructed of ceramic with a kevlar backing and are designed to stop up to .30-06 armor piercing bullets.
I asked him if he was SURE he wanted to send them and suggested maybe he can make a few bucks selling them on ebay. Nope, he wanted to send them.
Apparently he tried to contact a couple other YT Partner channels- who ignored him. Good job guys. Originally he was going to send one plate to me and the other to another channel. I ended up getting both plates. These measure 6x8" and are a little over ½" thick and weigh about 3 lbs. each.
So we are trying to set up a place to shoot these, and use a wide-variety of guns to shoot at them. Probably start out with a little .22LR and work our way up to the .458 SOCOM. So 9mm, 45acp, 7.62x39, .223, 7.62x54r are all on the table.
