Most handgun bullets leave the muzzle somewhere between 800 and 1500 feet per second, but decelerate exceedingly rapidly.

100 feet per second is approx 70 miles per hour. Easy to ratio that upwards.

Divide your velocity by 1.466 to get MPH

...or go to Google and enter whatever fps you want to convert in the search bar like this:

1500 fps = mph

It will miraculously give you the answer.

Don't think your sunglasses will help all that much in stopping a bullet.

Are you wondering if sunglases are suficent to protect you from flying brass caseings? If so probibltly yes. If you are talking the lead projectile then no.
