    Thumbs up Very Impressive Body Armor

    That guy didn't even flinch when the bullet hit the vest. He should have had on safety glasses. I give him KUDOS for standing behind his product....LITERALLY!
    “The Constitution shall never be construed... to prevent the People of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.” -- Samuel Adams

    “Today, we need a nation of Minutemen. Citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.”

    —John F. Kennedy

    Any one know where the round and its conserved momentum deposited its remaining energy? I wonder if the cartridge might have been a sub-power light load?

    That bullet looked pretty flat, would a light powder load have been able to do that?

    The guy that first invented Vests went around to police stations and demo'd them in this very way.

    Note how much of that guy's body is still exposed, with no coverage on the sides at all.

    And then there's this:

    That would be nice to have in case some criminal wants to shoot me. At least I know my body is protected.

    The founder and owner inventor of the modren day soft body armor. Richard Davis would shoot himslef with full power 44 mag loads and I have seen videos of him being shot with 308 wearing his rifle rated armor.

    This guy wasn't the frist.

    Armor is nice to have on when you need it. But the trouble is that it is hot makes you sweat a lot and isn't that fun to wear.

    I wore the best money could buy measured and fitted to me it still wasn't that great to wear. It was always nice to get it off at the end of a shift.

    But I never went to work with out it.

    But I haven't put it on from the time I retired.
