In case you're worried that someone is going to shoot at your Apple iPhone 4, a new 5 pound armored case for the device offers 1 inch of thick steel for protection; the front remains exposed because of the touchscreen, but the back armor can stop a 50 caliber bullet...

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

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..

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

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???
