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.

i live in one of the lowest crime areas in the country(violent crime anyway).it didnt stop 2 scumbags from getting off the interstate(from Springfield perhaps?) and killing two clerks during a robbery a few years back.middle of the night and cash on hand makes you a target pretty much anywhere.

if it were me?...second shift?maybe...3rd shift?probably.i'd definately be armed,regardless of store policy.

i dont currently own any body armor,but i intend to in the near about to get certified as a pistol instructor for CCW...shooting with new folks(and the occasional idiot im sure) is reason enough for me.theres been a few times just shooting at the range when i wished i had been wearing some.


BTW, "cheap" and "effective" don't go together. You get what you pay for.
