I worked for DuPont for 37 years, most of it making Kevlar. We saw those video's of Second Chance "testing" more than once.

Thanks for posting that.

In about 1978 or 1979 our department issued our first ballistic vests worn under the uniform shirt. Second Chance brand. Remember seeing those tests back then at some point.

My second chance vest stopped a knife and I went home unharmed. The inmate who stabbed me went maximum cell block and got extra time added to his sentence.

I know some will disagree, but anyone who lets someone shoot them to prove a product is an idiot. Things fail errors happen Dumb, and Dumber comes to mind. Same goes for Gun trainers that have students stand beside targets during live fire to acclimate them to being shot at.

I like that MAC-10 a lot. What a great simple designed little sub machine gun. I really like simple but effective small arms. One of my top 10 favorites of all time.
