bad news

I taped the sample between two 2x4's with 4.5 inch
gap between them using duct tape to emulate taping
armor over a skeletal frame.

The first shot from 10 feet range penetrated intact
without even splattering.  I can send you the sample
if you wish.

I also found some 5mm Coroplast.  Paint balls splattered
on it and caused minor cracking that allowed paint to penetrate
slightly but much less than the 4mm Coroplast.

I believe that 6mm or thicker Coroplast (similar to totes
used by the U.S. Postal Service) may work.

Can anyone on the list send me a sample of
6mm or thicker Coroplast?  A 7 or 8 inch square
will suffice.
