    Faith in your shield is one thing, faith in the shooters is sumit else.

    Most assuredly, I would not have been behind that shield. Nope.

    Murphy's Law says someone would eventually screw up and put a round through that little window up top.

    So, does Workers Compensation cover such things? After all, there ARE a few witnesses!

    Somebody call OSHA. There's not one person in that photo wearing hearing protection or safety glasses. Good thing they have on their ricochet proof business duds.

    Many years ago my lady was a police officer and stopped a round with her bullet resistant vest, center chest. She said not to believe any movie that shows someone getting hit and barely flinching. She was in the hospital for a while with a large bruise on her chest.

    The guy holding it explains what people are willing to do for prospective profit from their product, his possible bonus was worth the risk in his mind at that wild time in history.
