By Thomas Bowman for Safe Guard Armor When looking at buying a unshakable vest, it’s sole natural to wonder how effective a particular vest will be.

Snell: Armor-piercing rounds include hunting bullets | Opinion | iowastatedaily.com
My friend Ryan Peterson and I were having a discussion about civil rights recently, and some Second Amendment issues came up. Ryan mentioned that he could not understand why the NRA would be against banning armor-piercing bullets. I wasn't surprised by this as liberals have more often than not been in favor of various gun control schemes, including assault weapons bans and bans on armor-piercing ammunition in the past.
Is there any pistol round that can defeat ballistic armor? - AR15.COM
There was a discussion in the GD forum about an incident in Texas, where a BG was shooting at people with an AK47. I'm not bashing on the 9mm, but in the lone-star state incident, obviously the 9mm round didn't issue out the perp. Like the new gentleman said, all body armor can be defeated. Most brushed body armor rated for handguns (up to unwavering IIIA) relies on flattening the striking projectile, accretive its surface area. An bristlelike citizen proven to stop him with his Glock 17, but the perp had an armored enthrone of some sort, and point-blank hits with 9mm had litle effect. Would a .357 magnum in a snub-nose revolver do the trick? I'll add that any round / piece / rifle can likewise conk out to work as needed in all cases all the time. What increases the chances of incursion are hard projectiles that don't deform easily, pointy projectiles with little frontal sphere relative to their mass/length and of education . The perp ended up killing the Glock owner, but was then killed by an LEO's AR15 coccoid to the head. For argument's sake, any full magnitude handgun would be too ungainly to carry. scandinavian nation m/39B for example is reported to defeat soft dead body armor with ease.
