Also protection from things like pepperspray.


true...but i wouldnt trust it for that either...my dad is a cop, and he showed me the effects...

he sprayed a little bust at the grass 10 feet downwind, and told me to walk towards it. it isnt just your eyes, but the stuff gets to your nose and mouth first...it is some crazy stuff :D . i wouldnt want to take a direct bust at me, or all over my mask either, it is impossible to breathe!

my dads a cop too. I actually sprayed myself directly with a small amount playing with one a loooong time ago, it really sucks because not only does that stuff burn like no other, theres nothing you can do about it, you can only wait till it wears off and your sinuses are no longer on fire. also the effect hangs around, so if any is sprayed it can burn walking through it even a few minutes to half an hour or more later. A paintball mask would not stop pepper spray enough to be worth it, it wouldnt get in your eyes but once its in your sinuses you're still screwed.

Didn't JT say that they tested their masks/goggles with shotguns back in the day??

I never said that I believed it! And I definitely wouldn't trust my head to the test...but I thought that they used that as a marketing bit for awhile back in the 90s?

I have a few different types of birdshot if you want to me to test it out... But, I only have 1 extra lense (clear JT spectra).

Here's the various shotgun rounds I have, going from smallest to biggest:
- 2 3/4" 8 shot
- 2 3/4" 6 shot
- 3" mag 2 shot
- 3 1/2" mag BBB

So, someone pick a round and I'll shoot the lense. It may take a while though, my college doesn't necessary encourage guns on campus so I'd have to wait until I went home.

Edit: I was looking at the first page when I posted this, so don't be too confused. The offer still stands though.

And if anyone is interested in the effects of 9mm, .38S, .357 mag, .22 (short, long, soft nose or copper), .223 (hollow point or FMJ), 5.56mm, 7.62mm, 30-30, 30-06, .50 cal BMG, let me know. :panzer: Send me a mask and I'll send you the pics. I might just try the .22 short on one of my old ones just cause it seems to be a main wonderment on this thread...

I would love to see any of these rounds on a JT lense, just to see what will happen and just how badly JT's old marketing bit is off...

If I remember correctly, there are lense that can withstand the impact of a .22 caliber. The deal is, those lense are used on helmets for motorcycle racing, if I remember correcly.

Well, there's a big difference between each of the rounds, not to mention the drastic difference with lead vs steel

I think I'll just shoot it with the biggest thing I got just for fun.
