View Full Version : Article about Second Chance body armor

Here's an article that appeared in my newspaper about the founder of Second Chance body armor. Besides the link to the article itself, I've attached two photos from the piece showing the before and after of the guy shooting himself, reportedly with a 44 Magnum :eek: , while wearing the armor.


Note: I personally don't necessarily agree with anything in the article (especially as the newspaper, the Detroit Free Press, tends to be anti-gun). I just find the article and pictures interesting.

looking closely, the change in color tone is more likely due to someone fiddling with the digital image.

Richard Davis (I think that's his name) used to do that demonstration to promote the vests.

As for Second Chance as a company, I would tend to agree with araebisu. The zylon fiasco has been well documented of late so I'm not going to get into it.
