    Does anyone have knowledge of any instances of residential burglars using body armor? I'm not interested in internet myths or rumors, just verifyable cases of creeps using body armor when they break into homes. Thanks, Don

    I've never heard of any such case. If it has happened I would assume it's a corner case (Exceedingly rare).

    I would much rather prefer you contact NRA-ILA direct than have conjecture posted here.

    It seems I heard about it some time last year but can't swear to that.

    A while back a guy did attack a Texas Court house and couldn't be stopped because he was wearing body armor.
    As I recall he was finally stopped while driving away when a LEO shot him in the neck with a .223.

    A CHL holder shot him a couple times but apparently didn't know the gunman was wearing armor. The gunman killed the CHL holder.


    Because of that incident I removed the M1 Carbines from my vehicles and put .223 and 7.62x39 rifles in them.

    thats why you should shoot until the threat is down, and after 15 10mm hollow points if he is still standing i throw the gun at him and run

    We had several cases in Baltimore where the perps we arrested were indeed wearing "GOOD" body armor.
    One officer involved was shot several times in his armor, returned fire and hit the perp in his armor. The fight finally ended hand to hand with the officer putting a bullet through his opponents throat.

    Doesn't appear that the use of body armor by criminals is a common occurrence, I didn't think it was. Hope that doesn't change. Don

    I think that may be accurate.
