View Full Version : Defending Against Body Armor

This Batman thingy has us all twitching.
I've considered defending myself against a heavily armed,
and armored, assailant before.
My thoughts have been;
1) Even with body armor,
someone is likely to go down at least temporarily taking small arms fire.
2) Aiming for the pelvis might be a fine idea.

Do you have any specific ideas about this scenario that might help save lives?

As always,
thanks so much for sharing your time and experience with us.

I don't have enough info yet for full discussion, and the short answer format of GATE isn't the right place for that complicated a discussion anyway. Fortunately, there are longer threads elsewhere in Glock Talk that already make some excellent points on this incident.

Sorry I couldn't be more help,
