Apple iPhone 4 case can stop a 50 caliber slug from putting a hole in your phone
If you are worrying about someone shooting a hole through your Apple iPhone 4, we have some great news. For only $650 you can purchase a heavily armored case from Marudai that can stop a direct hit from a 50 caliber bullet. And just in case you think that paying that kind of money for a 1 inch thick plate of steel is a rip-off, the company will send you with your case, a 50 caliber dummy bullet.

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.

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......

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..
