Default What kind of bug is this

I was in New Braunfels, TX this weekend camping. I took a picture of this bug. Everyone is saying its a stink bug but it was 2-3 inches big and silver. Zoom in and tell me if they're correct.

And the way they fly....kamikaze flying at it's best. I've seen them fly into window glass and bounce off the side of a car.
