Bulletproof is the first album by the 1970s British rock band Hard Stuff. It was released on Purple Records, the Deep Purple-related record label.

It also featured vocalist Harry Shaw, formerly of Curiosity Shoppe (who recorded one single on Deram), but he had left the band by the time of its release and was uncredited. The record sleeve was re-designed to remove Shaw's image (originally shown on the bottom right hand side).
