It's well documented how drywall does not stop bullets. A recent home improvement project has got me thinking.
My house was built in 1916. The walls are 3/4" plaster backed by wood slats. This stuff has broken half a dozen of my drill bits. I went through 3 jigsaw blades for a hole for an outlet.
Obviously this wouldn't stand up to several shots (probably not more than 1 pistol round in any spot) but I'm thinking it may be usable as temporary cover.
Any experience or thoughts on this? Should I be asking the Box o` Truth?
