I recently pulled my Air Rifles out of storage, a Beeman .177 caliber break barrel and a Benjamin 392 multi-pump .22.
Shots were taken from roughly 16-25 feet. .177 Hits about 1100 FPS, .22 averages around 780 FPS.
Not surprisingly the break barrel had the deepest impacts, but what surprised me was the fact that neither air rifle was able to penetrate the Riot Shield or Goggles. I had always assumed that a pellet rifle would be able to punch straight through. Not that I would feel safe being behind either, I was impressed.
The riot shield is 3/16th lexan - Very little damage, minor dents and scuffs. Held up far better than I had expected.
Goggles are Z87+ rated - Arena Flakjack - Aside from the lens separating from the frame, zero penetration. Some interior bulging when hit by the .177, overall very sturdy lenses.
The R-Lux mask was junk, but interesting to shoot at - Fiberglass holds up pretty well at an oblique angle. Perpendicular shots destroy it. Makes for some gratifying shrapnel into the foam heads face though.
The Robot was pure fun, plus it had a foul mouth - THIS is proof that if robots rise up to be humanity's biggest enemy, they're going to be a bastard to kill. This toy would not die, after shooting out its face it continued to light up and attempt to move.
It's probably a lot more fun to be the shooter than the viewer, but I hope you enjoy it anyway!
