Your company's glass has saved my ass more times than I can count. Thank you. 25 IED strikes in 3 tours, and your glass was between me and death every single time.

Well shit man stay safe. Get Some

I guess you guys didnt put the glass in the old "Up-armored" humvees? That stuff was bad ass. I got my first purple heart in one. Glass held. The vehicle, doors, tranny, spare tire, turret and assorted Soldiers inside (including myself) didnt.

I rode in the Cougar when I first got into Afghan going out to our squad OP and we took heavy contact en route and we counted up the 7.62 in windows and one window had 18 rounds in it with slight penetration. I would say a few more rounds and it would have gave out because the tip of a few rounds were poking out on the side we were on.
