How does homemade body armor made from t-shirts, paper, and duct tape hold up to bullets?

This test of homemade body armor by Demolition Ranch reads like the old fable of the Three Little Pigs. This little piggy made body armor out of T-Shirts. This little piggy used duct tape. And this one used a stack of printer paper. Which homemade body armor can withstand the big bad wolf bullet? Well, they each sort of do to varying degrees.


The t-shirt body armor fared the worst, with a pistol easily penetrating the thickness. The duct tape holds up admirably, its threads kind of caught a bullet but let another pierce right through. And the printer paper can take a lot of beating but eventually fails too. Watch Demo Ranch test below.

So, what happens if you take printer paper, wrap it in t-shirts and then duct tape the fuck out of that?
