    I won't miss the 40lbs of body armor, can't wait for lighter stuff. looks like they are leaning towards windshields and other glass applications with this stuff though, the name is mind boggling :eek:

    poly deca moly hedral.... what?.....

    Anything with a handle like that has to be expensive. I wouldn't look for it at your local sporting goods store anytime soon. :eek:

    The test they did was using a 9mm. Wonder how it would hold up against Ma Deuce?

    I was wondering if they had tested 7.62 against the stuff yet, that's what's getting shot at us! PKM and AK's, I don't mind having plates at all but sure would like some lighter stuff. probably by the time I retire...

    And the price has to be tremendous, just the plates alone I have now are over $1000, ouch, not to mention the flak inserts underneath and side plates.

    and if I get hit with old Ma, something is seriously wrong! I've always been on the giving side of the old M2, that's the place to be for sure. Don't get in front of her, she'll ruin your whole day...
