And it was worth every penny spent.

Sometimes all you can do is look them in the eye and ask " how much did your mom drink when she was pregnant with you?"

Reminds me of our dumb shit Sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona who had a Crown Vic armored plated and bulletproof glass installed at the cost of $75,000. He has these dreams that someone whats to kill him. Now he won't use the car because its too slow (to much weight).

Even more impressive when you realize that glass was bought on a government contract for the lowest bid.

But can it stand further impact now that it's like so badly cracked?

The glass doesn't get cracked in movies  Smile I thought it was the same in reality

Have you seen the most recent New Times? They plastered his Fountain Hills address on the cover. He is trying to bring felony charges against the editor but the editor maintains that it is public access and that the supposed death threats have all been faked by the Sheriff's department anyway. He's nothing but an east coast wanna be cowboy publicity whore anyway. I've met him, been a visitor in his facilities, and have been a tenant in his facilities and I know with certainty that, if there is a hell, he is certainly going there.

Until it weights the same as your other windshield. As you know weight is a premium in aviation. Give it 10 years or so until some new polymer comes out.
