  • CCW and Body Armor

    Do any civilian CCW's out there also wear body armor? If so I'd love to hear the reasoning behind it, despite the obvious!

    Quick Question,

    Unless you are constantly in a dangerous situation, why would you wear a vest all day? Besides for it being uncomfortable, If I saw a civilian wearing body armor on the street, I would become Highly suspicious and aggressive,


    In cleveland on friday a civilian in body armor opened fire in case western reserve university.
    as a PO I wiould say, civilian body armor on a regular basis, not a good idea

      I can certainly understand suspicious but agressive? And Zalman, no way would I want to wear body armor as a civilian.

        Well maybe not aggressive:-)

          In South Africa, a civilian in body armor is a smart cookie. Personally, I wouldn't be caught dead anywhere without an M4 and a couple of frag grenades. [Wink]

          Up here, he or she is odd.

          Now mind, I'm talkin Joe "entirely normal and do nothing odd" Civilian here. If he's Joe "I carry large sums of cash" Civilian or Jane "There are diamonds in the trunk!" Civilian, then no problem.

          And I have no problem with Officer Friendly turning into Officer Aggressive. A guy wearing body-armor (especially if he or she is also carrying a gun) is expecting trouble. I can carry my CCW all day comfortably. From what I hear, you can

            Don't have my permit yet, but I don't anticipate wearing body armor. What would be the point? How do you anticipate when you would need it? Isn't it hot and uncomfortable? Hell, I don't even want to wear a bra half the time!

              Body armor is useless since all Glock's will defeat body armor and armor plating on vehicles!

                Wrong. Glock is a pistol, not a minor god.

                      Don't have a CCW, but I do, once or twice a year, wear a vietnam-era flak vest (vest, fragmentation protective, 3/4 collar, to be technical) in public, on occasions when I'm expecting to be shot at, like Minnesota Gopher Riots and the like. Not real eager to get hit by a rubber bullet or beanbag round, thanks. And, if I wasn't at these events to take pictures for my photo agency, I probably wouldn't need the vest at all, or the M17 mask I carry to the same events.

                      It's a very old, probably obsolete, kevlar vest. It's heavy, and probably wouldn't reliably stop a .32 or even a .25, let along a .40 +P, but, hey, it's probably enough to prevent a broken rib from a rubber bullet...

                      Had I a CCW, and/or a "real" vest, I doubt I'd wear it, except to the above sorts of "social events".
