    Yikes! Cool product, but I am not sure it was good fundamentals of firearms safety to do that. But in that industry and with that product, it's certainly good advertising.

    Seriously do you think he was testing the product? The product was proven before the video was recorded, he did not really risk his life he was show boating.

    I tend to agree with azchevy.

    This world IS materialistic and impressionable. So you want your opinions to be as well? Sure, he may not get a job as a salesman dressed like that but as it has been said, He isn't trying to get a salesman job. He is the founder and owner of a very successful company. What does his dress have to do with anything? You may judge him and say he is dumb, out of fashion, doesn't fit the part, etc... but he has shown through his business he is not any of the things you claim his appearance conveys to you.

    Sometimes I want to show a friend of mine a clip on youtube. Lets say a Comedy clip. I turn on the video which happens to be a few years old and he has a hairdo and a weird "bill cosby" sweater on. I get so frustrated when this person can't seems to grasp the meaning of the clip which is...to be funny. I don't care what he looks like.

    I think its a great thing someone can stand behind their product like that, especially when its supposed to save lives.

    And a note on the clothing, Jobs turned Apple into a $65,230,000,000 a year company wearing sneakers, jeans and a turtleneck. Besides, if the ballistic glass failed, how silly would he feel for getting a $3,000 suit all bloody?

    I read this and started chuckling. Whaddya want him to do, show up in an Armani suit holding a briefcase and his morning cup of coffee and go, "I'm the CEO and president of Texas Armoring. Buy my product because when I get shot at I still look professional, and that's what counts." The End.

    Good video and that's some kind of tough glass. Dangerous as it was, he literally stood behind his product, that's something a manure spreader salesman won't do.

    I would have never thought that guy was the owner, he looked like he was hired help. Talent, brains, work ethic, etc usually make the person successful, business clothing can put the icing on the cake. It's nice to utilize both.

    There is an old video of a woman holding a piece of glass and her husband or enployeer shoots at it. I think it is on youtube. Scarry. BTW, once you get a hole in the glass, there is nothing left to stop/slown down and projectile. Pretty dumb and damn dangersous.

    Best!

    your kidding right? your concern of his appearance? I have dealt with billionaire investors in flannel shirts and jeans and ones in the 3000+ suits. I'll tell you; I will usually be more impressed with the person dressed down; as he is more so in line with the rest of us commoners. Knowledgeable people don't need to dress to impress if not required. Let's be clear there are situations when it is appropriate but lets be honest. The corporate world isn't what it use to be! It really depends on the business. Jobs was a great example presented earlier.

    It must be an effective add...since it has seemed to generate plenty of discussion on several gun boards.

    And pretty much everyone that has seen it will remember it. Can you say that about many other ads that you have seen?

    Sometimes you have to do something outrageous to get the point across. Looks like they were successful.

    I honestly don't see much different here than a manufacturer of parachutes jumping out of a plane at 10,000 feet while using his product. The end result would be the same just the guy with the chute would have more time to think about it....

    As far as his dress, I don't see anything wrong with it. I come from the electronics tech community, the way you dress don't mean much.
