  1. Level IIIA soft body armor will stop the same as a stand alone level IIIA ballistic “speed” plate.
    What would a level IIIA “speed plate” ICW a level IIIA soft body armor stop?

    I want to say thank you for your informative and entertaining articles. I’ve been following your writings for several years and always enjoy reading them. Thank you from a Mn native.

  3. I am concerned with over penetration of the missed shots in home defense. The tests I’ve found online for ammo such as the Glaser always put successive layers of sheetrock just a few inches away from the subsequent sheetrock. My house has two sheetrock panels separated by air spaced by 3 1/2 inches of ponderosa pine. Then, after passing through two panels of sheetrock there are several feet to the next pane.

    My concern is for the resident of the next room who probably is not leaning against the wall through which the round is penetrating.

    I’d like to see a test of two panels of sheetrock and a pattern of impacts a few feet away from wall. What kind of pattern will a Glaser present? What will the plastic nose ball penetrate? If my wife gets hit with a bunch of small shot at low velocity I will be not as disappointed as if she gets hit with a ball round.

    What I think would be a good test I’ve not found on the internet. This would be right up your alley as a REALISTIC tester of bullet performance. Allow me to suggest the following…

    1. sheetrock
    2. 3 1/2 inches of .air
    3. sheetrock
    4. two feet of air
    5. sheet of butcher paper (or shot test pattern)
    6. two more feet of air
    6. another piece of sheetrock to judge pattern and penetration at 4 ft. from first wall. This is where a person might be standing.

    I expect to see wide dispersion of small pellets that hit the final piece of sheetrock that penetrate little. My wife may have some small scars but not even spend the night in the hospital.

    Will I be right?
