    Then they should make a big "water vest" 10 inches thick! you put it on and look like a pillsbury doughboy, but very safe. very inexpensive (also very impractical).
    lol just a thought though.
    Well life is too short so love the one ya got cuz ya might get run over or ya might get shot.

        ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING MY *** OFF....

        That was not exactly what I had in mind...

        But you have to admit there are some cool physics going on when a 50 cal round will pass through a 10 inch tree with no problems but not 10 inches of water.
        I'm just saying there is a clue there from nature that should have been investigated long ago. The liquid vest idea sound like a great thing in the making. Might save lots of lives.

          Don't departments already have pillsbury doughboy's. The ones I have been around do, they are called overweight cops who don't do jack about there weight and don't care.

            Yes, but they don't have ballistic properties like a water vest.

            You'd think they would, though.

                    One thing you have to keep in mind, the Military always takes the lowest bidder!!! Yes, even when it comes to the troops safety.
