However, what I do know is this...
The big companies have put millions of dollars into researching their prospective products' abilities to stop different threat levels. They make money by protecting people's lives. If their products didn't work, their customers would die and then no one would be left to buy anything from them. That said, I would (if I were seriously concerned with my well-being in a non-PAW where such products are readily available) trust a tried-and-true industry standard ballistic armor plate much more than a hobbled-together DIY kit I saw some guy post on the internet somewhere.
Again, I want to reiterate, the purpose of me sharing this with the ZS is in a "shit has gone downhill all hell has broken loose and I never bought those ballistic plates I thought were soooo cool" situation. This is a field expedient means to protect yourself when all other resources are no longer available. I would like to also point out I will be testing this for myself this weekend, and as of yet only have the word of my buddy to go off of.
jehicks88- he's quoting (sorta- I'm not looking it up to be sure) a rather famous internet goofball who posted as "an expert" all sorts of "this crap will get you killed dead if you try it" type stuff. However, once you set aside the serious way he presented it, it makes for piss your pants funny reading.
