I remember a line from the Cold War confrontation along the German border. A US Army general lamented the difficulty of using tactical nuclear weapons in the event of a Soviet invasion of West Germany:

"Towns in West Germany are only two kilotons apart!"

I've been shooting plated bullets through my G20 and G29. I just purchased 1,000 Precision Bullet Company 165 grain 10mm rounds. Since they're jacketed, I may work up some loads with that 800-X I have sitting around.

Well OF COURSE they'll bring their own arms and ammo! They are not wimp-symps dependent on male approval for their self-esteem! In fact, I suggest you practice appropriate servile demeanor in appropriate circumstances in order to convince THEM to allow YOU to shoot THEIR gear!

Unkle, I counsel you to follow the philosophy exemplified by the publicity phrase for the Naked Gun 2 1/2 promo's:

Frank Drebbin is back ... Just accept it!

I can't find it locally. The next time I'm doing an Internet order, I'll try to remember to pick some up.

Clint somehow looks manly in that thing. I could never pull that off.

In the movie Fist Full of Dollars I believe Clint sported a breast plate, under his MEXICAN CAPE PONCHO or zarape, made for iron and he was shot several times to the heart, then he dropped the breast plate and shot all the bad guys!

Nothing like waiting until the bad guys have used up all their bullets to give you an edge.

Yeah, I don't think I could get away with all those decorative tassels. I'd either look like tinkerbell, or a lampshade.

Easier to carry a G29 or M657 in this thing.
