ever wore body armor? ever been shot? i have worn it and have been shot, you dont always notice that much kenitic energy when your hear is pumping. and a lot of bad guys have worn body armor. BOA shoot out in LA and the movie theature shooter in colorado recently, just to name 2 right off the top of my head. google might tell you more.
I would agree with you on the kinetic one doesn't feel when the adrenalin to flowing I worn armor every day for over 33 year. I was never shot but I been punched and kicked in it. I lot of punches and kicks carry more energy then a lot of handgun bullets.

One just has to watch the videos of Richard Davis the founder of second chance armor shooting him self and being shot to realize the bullets stopped by armor don't knock you down.

As far as bad guys wearing armor it is rare the north holly wood shoot out is exceptional in that matter.

The movie theater shooter did not have armor on it was a tactical vest wrongly reported as armor as are most of the reports of armor.

the lad from the tarheel state has a question....simple question really...

why in bloody h3ll did you ALL let yourselves get sucking into this discussion AGAIN by this savant?

you know the outcome and yet in the space of two hours there are 23+ posts from folk urinating in a strong wind wondering why they are getting wet...

the fool just dropped crap in the water and you are snapping it up amongst yourselves like you're piraña trying to get the last morsel even if it means nibbling on your neighbour's body by accident/purpose...

ya'll are back to 2010 finding stories of this and that and ohhh lookie here at this or this scenario fits and this is what it proves....geeee you are making him look smart!!

for goodness sake, cut the fish line and swim away from this savant.

Many new people here who weren't privy to the old threads and therefor should benefit. It provides practice for us too.

There are those few who will avail themselves of the opportunity to air dance if we give them enough rope.

figuratively speaking, of course...

More bovine scatology from our CC troll. Two points the "bad guy" knows it is a farce, and he will not be killed, and an active shooter spares no one, whether they are armed of not. Mass shooters are not the norm, playing this game, and basing OTHERS options on outside the norm is idiotic.
Great point.

Notice how you actually had nothing to say but just to post some yellow journalism and expect it to make a point. Pretty lame, but okay, we get it.

It is obvious that you don't open carry and consider it to be bad. That's actually your prerogative, and you are also free to advise others as to your viewpoint.

But, let me ask; do you feel we each have the individual right to decide for ourselves, or would you support making our strategic advantage illegal in favor of your supposed tactical advantage?

I don't think he carries at all, IMO he is just here to aggravate, he probably does the same thing on CC forums. As well as making the rounds of politics, and religion forums.

What I don't get is why the mods still tolerate him. It's not practice. We're not educating anybody. If anything newbies are reading his garbage and believing it.

He certainly is a skunk. You might not like the skunk, but he makes it more interesting. The board used to have more clashes and excitement. Sad to say but Hank and Leo229 made the boards more alive.
