Video: Are Helmets Bulletproof?

An Arai helmet faces off against pistols, a rifle, and a shotgun.

If you've ever wondered whether or not your motorcycle helmet would stop a bullet, you're not alone. Hopefully, there will never be any reason to find out. Still, the internet is chock full of people trying to answer questions we all hope will never be asked (yea, sometimes that's us on motorcycles), and the nice folks over at Demolition Ranch decided to take it upon themselves to see whether or not a fancy Arai would stop a bullet… or four or five. Silly? Maybe. But we have to say, the results are pretty interesting.
