Coming out of lurk mode to recommend a documentary called Bulletproof Salesman. Did a brief search and didn't see any mention of this movie here. This guy sells modified Land cruisers in war zones. In a product testing sequence they put >600 rounds in a 100. Thought you folks would be interested. I streamed it from Netflix.
There is no such thing as a bulletproof car.
Cool. I just added it to my instant queue.
"As an armored luxury car salesman, Fidelis Cloer has made a fortune from America's war in Iraq. This documentary examines how this successful German war profiteer earns money when violence increases and soldiers' lives are threatened. A dedicated capitalist who roots for the escalation of the war, Cloer predicted correctly that the situation in Iraq would deteriorate and provide opportunities for him to get rich."
