Before going into this article I want to make it perfectly clear that you should not test this out in any way and the information written in these articles are for information purposes only and not intended for anything other than knowledge sharing. With that said, not every window is created equal and impact windows are built to withstand wind and debris. The goal of the window is not to stop bullets so it shouldn’t be tested as such. Bullet-resistant glass is often thicker than impact window glass and is designed in different ways with that purpose in mind. The hurricane windows designed to stop projectiles in hurricane winds are treated with a laminate to stop the glass from shattering but not to stop a bullet. So to answer the question, impact windows are not bulletproof.
