    True. It’s for that reason and the fact that I’m poor I only load six hollow points over 12 FMJ rounds.

    We're talking about reloading speed.
    Nobody beats Jerry.

    So this is an 11 minute info-mercial for their plate carrier vests ?!

    My own plate carrier vest cost me $75 at an Army/Navy store.

    The vest itself won't stop much, other than a knife.

    It is the plates themselves that matter.

    A ballistic material plate over a steel plate will stop anything including rifles up to a BAR 50 cal.

    My own plates (4 total -- 2 in front and 2 in back) will stop a 308 rifle.

    Easy when nobody is shooting at you.

    If you are going to hunt with a revolver then you might as well get a 454 Casull.

    It all depends.

    If my pistol is in my shoulder holster concealed, then I will go with Condition 2.

    If my pistol is open carry in my locking holster then I prefer Condition 1 once I get to work and go on duty. Until then while I am driving to work I keep it in Condition 2.

    It does not matter if nobody is shooting at you.

    When I am camping I have my 12 gauge loaded with slugs alternating with double aught buckshot.
