    Bullet proof shield

    Thinking about this home invasion thing.
    My bed is a bit difficult to hide behind. Actaually other than paper thin walls I really have nothing to put between myself and a potential shooter, becides the cat.
    I was thinking about those full body riot shields the police and swat wear.
    A smaller version that will stop or at least offer some protection from common calibers.
    Like a semi light half body possibly collapsible shield a person could shine a tactical light through and return fire from. Sort of thing that could store under a bed or in a closet.

    Material ideas if this is possible ?

    I've seen something like this reviewed by James Yeagar at a convention. I'll do a little searching.

    1/4" high-Y 100 would be better.

    I carried the ballistic shield on the entry team. It had a window, a light and would stop up to a .308. It was also as much fun to carry as a Buick.

    how thin and what type of steel would likely stop a .308?

    once you know that, get something about 100% better.

    I'm not familiar with High Y 100, is it lighter?

    that expression about rather pushing a buick than drive a Ford for someone much stronger than I.
