    Yeah, but it's NOT as strong as it is "from the tap".

    I've heard the talk of silk weight penetration protection before. The problem is that without the mass to spread out the point loading you would still end up with a gunshot wound. The bullet would just be gift wrapped with your silk shirt.
    Not high speed, low drag. More like ten under, blinker on.
