We wont be telling him any of that, lets just see what he does after a few beers
I suspected there was more to this science than just the 'forehead' test
Maybe a disclaimer would not be the worse idea in the world.

I learned quite a lot about collision impact force while I was developing the tester.. it has the equivalent impact force of a .177 pellet travelling at about 500 fps, but the damage a pellet would do to soft tissue is going to be much worse ( just saying, so you're not tempted to try the test with a pellet ).

The tester puts out about 0.08 FPE of Kinetic energy, but it's not KE that knocks a target over, it's momentum.
