Apple iPhone 4 case can stop a 50 caliber slug from putting a hole in your phone
If a sniper is aiming at the touchscreen of your pride and joy, your Apple iPhone 4 will still buy the farm because the front has minimal protection from a thin aluminum facade. After all, you need to be able to touch the display on the handset. And of course, there is a small hole on the back for the unit's camera. Although the ads mention just the Apple iPhone 4, we would imagine that it will also fit the Apple iPhone 4S.
Would anyone really take on 5 extra pounds of weight in exchange for protection from an incident that seems so far fetched? If you are the real conservative type and want to order the case, you can do so by clicking on the sourcelink.

Some how I'm having trouble imagining that many average iPhone users are the type of people who have to worry about getting hit by 50 cals.

So you're telling me you DON'T want to punch a large hole through a hipster douche?
38. parkwaydr (Posts: 572; Member since: 07 Sep 2011)
Naa, if I ever had a 50 cal, I would save it for something more important, like the raccoons who keep building homes in my shed and getting into my garbage cans

You would think a hipster douche would be shot by a sniper more than twice......

Finally! I'm so tired of my phone getting shot up.

to think that without this case, the iPhone's own weight will cause it to get cracked when dropped, how much more damage will it cause to the iPhone when you add 5 pounds of metal?
this case is just plain stupid..

Well.......this case is awkwardly large....u could throw that junk at someone and knock them dead cold.......lol

I wonder who is this "targeted" at cause sombody spent alot of time and money pluse must have a cnc machine or something that would machine it out for this project. If I really wanted to make this I am sure I could make it for cheaper than 650 dollars by a long shot. I also would think if I had snipers shooting at me with a fifty cal I would worry more about body armor. Also if this thing got shot while in your uhhhh pocket it would or could still completely destroy limbs and kill you. I think I will wait for the space case.

I'm hoping everybody here realizes that's a crock.
50 cal bullets penetrate tanks even if magically the iphone doesn't get harmed the person holding it will

But you're forgetting the iphone IS "magical", steve bl*wjobs said so!

I'm actually working on a similar new case for the iPhone, but it's better than this. It has 1-foot of lead on all four sides, and is kept 500ft below the surface of the Earth. It will allow your iPhone to withstand a bunker buster bomb being lobbed at it. Additionally, it will protect your phone from fallout in the event of a nuclear blast.
Once I release it, you'll realize the folly of exposing your phone to potential conventional and nuclear blast risks. It'll be well worth the cost to keep your iPhone secure.

I'd rather spend that money on a bulletproof vest than a ridiculous bulletproof iPhone case. And who the hell would want to assassinate an iPhone???
43. meowcenary (Posts: 187; Member since: 13 Apr 2012)
hmm...the kinetic energy would still do damage to the phone.
44. CharlieAtInfinity (Posts: 253; Member since: 10 Apr 2012)
lol even with that cover on I bet the glass on the iphone would shatter if i drop it from shoulder hight! :D hahaha
45. Raptor9142 (Posts: 41; Member since: 15 Apr 2012)

i call Bs on this one no way it can stop a .50 cal round most of are armor cant even stop impacts from a .50 not to mention how stupid and pointless this will be a total waste of time and money your time is better spent watching back door sluts 7 and dropping bombs on tehran

Because thin phones are just too mainstream for these iPhone hipsters.
