It's FAR, far, far more likely that installing a roll cage and 5-point racing harness will someday save my life than will being "prudently cautious" at the shooting range.
Not sure about the 5-point harness, but installing a roll cage may actually kill you: your car is designed to crumple and absorb energy.... stiffening may increase force on YOU ..... not only that, a roll cage complicates extrication proceedures by the FD, increasing time to get you out without further injury .... and time is not on your side if you have sustained serious trauma....

So anything you do has consequenses ...... don't go shooting where you can shoot from a holster (gravel pit) because youare afraid of Mattix and Platt II and you may not be able to clear leather when you NEED to, in time ....
