Company Boss Sits Inside Armored Mercedes As It's Shot With AK-47

Here's a guy who will not only stand behind his company's product, he'll also sit behind it -- while being shot at by an AK-47.

R. Trent Kimball, CEO of Texas Armoring Corporation (TAC), got behind the wheel of a Mercedes that had been armored by his company. Then, sales manager Lawrence Kosub opened fire.

On his boss.

As you can see in the clip above, Kimball sat behind the wheel as a dozen bullets hit the glass. He was so still, the company released an uncut clip of him getting into the car, sitting down and getting shot at to prove he wasn't replaced by a mannequin.

"When it comes to assuring our clients' safety, we take product testing very seriously," Kimball says in the clip.

TAC also released a 240fps slow-mo version of the clip:

Before the first clip, the company posted two screens of warnings to discourage copycats.

"Never point or shoot a firearm at a person or vehicle," the warning reads in part. "Never let someone point or shoot a firearm at you."

TAC has reinforced vehicles for the Pope, rapper T.I., Steven Seagal and oil executives in West Africa, the San Antonio Express-News reports.

"That was friggin amazin," Kimball says at the end of the clip, while inspecting the damage. "It could've taken a lot more."
