like it

Were I to be on an academy or commercial firing line, , or an RSO at a match, I'd wear that rascal in a heartbeat.

At an FAQ within the district, small group, etc, I'd go with the usual concealed armor.

Point Blank sent me a confirmation email today for a Vision concealable, FI carrier and a Paraclete (same company now) RMV w/lv.IV plates. Estimated ship date 7/3. I'll post pics when the vests arrive.

I'm inclined to agree with the conclusion that wearing at the range, while off work, is situational and at the wearers discretion.

Censorship is still weak...

Ever train complete noobs on the M-16? I've seen MSgts sweep the whole group with a loaded weapon, safety off. They are required for all training on AF bases.

Mine is for work, where we're required to wear 'em.

Cease and desist calling an instructor incompetent because of this choice.

Nice rig, Doc.

On that I'm closing this as we've been down the insult road before and we aren't doing that again.
