"It stops all handgun rounds to the .44 magnum, the most powerful handgun," said spokesman Robert Slattery.
The shield produced in Cleveland's Collinwood neighborhood may be your best line of defense against that unwanted gun-toting intruder, like the deadly Newtown shooter.
"The sad thing is, we live in a world where I hate to say it, we haven't seen the last of this. It's going to get worse," said Slattery.
He also says that if some crazed person pulls a gun and fires at you, the clipboard and desk top sized bullet resistant shields can give you a fighting chance.
"You get this in front of you, you're going to get that chance you didn't have. It's another option. We're not saying it's the sole solution but it's an option and it will protect people."
The shields are currently manufactured to stop a .44 caliber bullet, but Slattery says it can be produced to also stop a .223 size slug, the size used in the deadly Newtown shootings that killed 20 children and six adults.
"We can make it to stop those rounds. It would just be a little bit heavier and thicker. As you can see, it has woven layers of kevlar."
Bullets travel at high velocity and their impact can knock a police officer wearing a bullet-proof vest off his or her feet.
Not to worry says Slattery of Impact Armor,"If I'm holding it in my arms and I don't have my arms locked out it's going to react better if there is a little bit of give. If it's right against you, it'll probably knock the wind out of you. You're going to feel it. You're gonna take a step back but it won't have knock down power."
The clipboard sized bullet resistant shield cost $150 and the desktop size runs $350.
