    Is it titanium or some sort of metal? Because as many of you know, some guy got shot at in Brazil and his MBP saved his life by stopping the bullet.

    i am sure that the story with the MBP was that a friend of the owner accidentally shot it with an airgun..

    The MBP is probably shot with a small calibre round. Considering that a M16 round can make a rather significant dent at the back of a 1" thick steel plate, I really find it hard to believe it won't rip a MBP into 1/2.
