A brief about CEO fires from an AK-47 to demonstrate that his bulletproof cars are effective
The caption for the photo said, “Texan armoured vehicle company markets their goods in the most Texas way conceivable. In the brief video, TAC CEO Trent Kimball could be seen alone inside the Mercedes-Benz as eight to ten AK-47 rounds rained down on the SUV.
The business initially made the footage available back in 2014. Lawrence Kosub, the company’s manager of sales and export compliance, reportedly fired the bullets. Kosub appeared to be highly comfortable using an assault rifle, according to New York Post. All of Mr. Kosub’s rounds in the video hit the windscreen, but none of them penetrated it.
Returning to the video, it has received hundreds of likes and comments along with more than 4.8 million views since being shared. Online users were stunned to observe that the CEO of the business remained unfazed during the entire scene.
Confidence in one’s own product, a user remarked. Another person said, “Whew. A lot of confidence must have gone in there.
“Gotta admire a man that stands behind his stuff 100%,” said a third person. And a fourth, “This CEO, on the other hand, genuinely supports his offering. Boost his pay, please “. Even yet, one user said, “This is grave and alarming at the same time. You people are in charge.”
Texas Armoring Corporation is a provider of armoured vehicles situated in San Antonio, Texas, US, according to Fox News. The company manufactures a variety of armoured passenger cars and even offers car upgrades.
