Several years ago in Panama City, Florida, a few friends of mine
shot a CZ52 through a so-called bulletproof vest. It punched through it like a soda can. Those little pistols can be quite useful. Another post said something to the effect of, "They weren't very effective in battle." Perhaps that was true. However, in urban conflict settings, it is now highly effective. Gangbanger taking cover behind a dumpster, spraying 9mm rounds? No problem, my friend. Shoot right through it...and him. Or perhaps it's a nutball with body armor and an AK, spouting something about his connection to God and your demise? Pull out your $100, ugly, little CZ and clip his liver. Still not sold on the piece because of corrosive ammo on the market? Well, it can be corrosive to internal organs too, folks.
