Is pine bullet proof?

It depends - logically - on the caliber of the bullet, and the thickness of the pine. A deer rifle bullet will penetrate a 2x4 with no difficulty, and may or may not penetrate a 4x4. A .22 will penetrate neither, a .50 machine gun bullet will penetrate an 8x8. Loosely speaking, I would not consider pine to be a bulletproof material.
