    Yes. Wasn’t sure if he was banning or just ignoring. I didn’t think he is a Mod but wasn’t sure

    1. Head on prone with soft armor offers no protection whatsoever to the wearer. There is no protection on the shoulders to speak of, . . . the throat and face are completely vulnerable, . . . as well as the hands and arms. That makes a target area of at least 16 inches wide, . . . 15 inches tall, . . . and all vulnerable.

    2. A 12 gauge slug taking on a human being wearing a new or even next to new helmet, . . . will always be the winner. The slug's kinetic energy slamming against the helmet, . . . will slam the helmet into the wearer's head with a force that will crush the skull like a hammer doing in a robin's egg.

    3. Soft armor standing up, chest forward, . . . will also lose to the 12 gauge, . . . which will bust ribs like they were uncooked spaghetti, . . . it will push the sternum almost in to where it kisses the backbone, . . . it will totally rupture the heart and / or aorta, . . . making for a death of extreme pain over several minutes.

    Sorry, . . . computer commando, . . . you really don't know much, . . . period.

    May God bless,

    Dwight is sppot on.

    First there are some really good buckshot loads from Federal that will put the whole 9 pellet load in a six inch circle at 25 yards - did it with standard riot guns from 6 departments 20 years ago.

    Second sabot slugs will punch thru level III armor and I believe will give level IV a he77 of a run for it (we only had level II vests (used) and put two together (four panels) and the sabot slug sailed right thru all for like butter.

    Third rifle sights on a slug barrel and the federal buck shot and your run on 5 targets at 25 yards are 5 certifiable kills.

    All three were performed by line officers with department issued weapons and ammo - technology of almost 20 years ago

    You really do not have a clue on what takes place in the real world do you

    All I know about .12 gauge slugs is one shot into the trunk of a car dont have any trouble coming out the front grill. Very hard to miss a man sized target at 25 yards with a model 37 Ithica Deer Slayer or Rem 870. Makes a very messy crime scene when somebody takes one to the head.
