If crime is bad enough in your area that you have to consider wearing body armor to work at a second job, I'd think maybe the health benefits aren't really worth it.
Statistically crime is nowhere near bad enough for me to carry a gun in the area I live in. I do carry however. Knowing a situation isn't likely to happen but being prepared for it anyway seems like a better idea than "Well, this probably isn't going to happen so I don't need...."
You get the point. I'm just curious what options are, and if anyone on the boards own/use any regularly.
Anyway, I blame my father-in-law telling my wife how dangerous Convenient stores are to work in for her recent interest in me acquiring body armor. I tried to point out to her that the area he lives in (Springfield, MA) made the top 15 most dangerous places to live in the U.S. not too long ago.
Deaf ears of course.
