I used to be a dealer for Second Chance body armour, back when I was a meathead.  This foam and the possibilities impresses the crap out of me.

Now, not on the same scale, this kid makes a bullet resistant plate using fiberglass for about $30.  I was really impressed with his results too for the price and effort.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_7jiIQOgwtI
I'm just like the CAF, I seem to have retention issues.

We are talking "body armour"; not "Silencers".   [:D
