Ceramic plates aren't as durable.
    Ceramic is obviously for weight reduction, and for AP projectiles.

    You're wrong. It was like that where I grew up except the police and sheriffs didn't wear the jackboots (which then were only for motorcycle cops which we didn't have).

    It's not moronic. It's his civil right.

    Not much can counter some of the nasty handloads I've seen. I'm just starting to load 5.7 for my fiveseven and ps90. Turns armor into Swiss cheese. Tough to load.

    First off, who doesn't have a plate carrier? Everyone I train and shoot with has one. When we aren't doing 3-gun, and we're just training, we wear them. It's pretty easy to throw on, and if it's sitting next to the AR, I'd say a few seconds and you're good to go. Stupid not to own one IMO. AR500 Armor - Body Armor, Ballistic Plates, and Trauma Plates I run a super low profile rig, no extra ninja **** hanging off of it. It makes sense.

    Sort of like that. Same brand, level III with anti-spall coating, different color obviously as New England doesn't have much desert.

    Second off, I shoot 3-gun comps weekly spring summer fall. Know what 3-gun is? Practical application wise, it doesn't get any better. I get more rounds off in a week than most cops do in 10 years. Not a mall ninja, don't claim to be, I don't walk around in fatigues or wear tacti-cool ****. I shoot, a lot. I love to shoot, but I'm not a bench-rest princess.
    This is three gun. We're allowed to be a bit cocky.

    I'm shooting 3 - 4 days a week in this manner. In and out of cars, behind cover, running and gunning, reactive targets, etc etc etc. I've taken enough carbine courses to sink a battle ship, and again, I shoot 3-gun....I dare say 3-gun shooters are some of the best in the world in practical situations. I'm not an average shooter by any stretch. Actually, there's a ton of SWAT guys that shoot at the local comps, some broadcast it, some are just regular dudes. Good shooters actually (some of them at least, some ate too many tactical ho-hos)

    I have a feeling you don't realize just how many people like me there are....just regular people, but we take this aspect of freedom seriously. We train individually and in groups, 1/2 of us are vets, the rest are regular people (nurses, firefighters, teachers, carpenters, students...you name it). We aren't slobs, we don't sit in our moms basement dreaming about the end of the world. We also realize things are getting weird in this country, and prepare accordingly.

    Some good guys from TN.
    Question- are you a vet? I am a combat vet.

    Have you ever been an Instructor at a tacti-cool school? I was. I have RO'd and competed in several 3 guns, I have YET to see anything but a 'rambo' vest on the range. (rambo vest is a junk carrier, no protection) Now when the High Risk Entry teams train at the facility I used to work for THEY wore full battle rattle, but never have seen a civilian bring his own ballistic vest and brain bucket to ANY match or carbine training.

    Have you ever timed yourself from a sound sleep to vest on, weapon up and off safe? What was that time?

    I have been to Philly and Boston... the pic you tried to pawn off as 'typical cops' was the hunt for the Marathon Bomber- NOT just another day in Bean Town!

    I'll bet you a shiny nickle that if the cops did a no knock on your house you wouldn't have your vest on by the time they were standing in the bedroom doorway. They have a method to their madness, they know where to head first in an OH-Dark-30 breach. You'd do MUCH better to try and use the vest as a handheld shield and engage with a pistol while still in bed because you are not going to have time to wake, identify the threat, stand, put your vest on and then mount the carbine by the time the Cops are on you.

    But keep dreaming... tacti-cool schools need to make money too....

    It's the 2nd Amendment.

    There is nothing in the 2nd that prohibits a state from enacting laws for the proper transport of a weapon in a motor vehicle.
