Default Is bullet proof glass REALLY bullet proof?



Police cars, armored cars, military vehicles, lots of things have bullet proof glass built in. But is bullet proof glass really bullet proof? I mean, it could take three or four shots and hold out, but if you shoot it enough will bullet proof glass eventually break?
And:
If the gun is really weak will it take more shots to break the glass or will it not break it at all?
Can a strong enough gun break bullet proof glass in one shot?
All answers appreciated, thank you in advanced

Well, im pretty sure it all depends on the calibre and distance, but as a general rule, bullet-proof glass is bullet-proof.

Otherwise it would be called "Bullet resistant" or "Bullet-proof as long as the bullet is thrown" glass, right?
