I'm suddenly wondering if it is actually reasonable to wear body armor while at a place people are shooting. Accidents happen and even the most gun loving among us has to admit that more gun related accidents should happend where people are using guns.

Normal gun club and indoor ranges would probably scoff and chortle at you for oper8ing, but i'd feel safer wearing plates at some of the national forest/public lands shooting pits where there's a lot of fucking retards doing fuckass retard shit.

But the only time I've been hit, was by a ricochet at an indoor range. Guy was warned multiple times to stop firing across lanes until I caught a piece and they threw him out. Turns out he was a cop.

I want to make a joke, but this just makes me sad.

If you are worried about that, consider something made to carry a cut of soft BALCS armor (such as: http://www.skdtac.com/Paraclete-LVBC-Low-Vis-BALCS-Carrier-SKD-Exclus-p/par.105.htm). You can still put plates in it too, for higher chest protection. The soft BALCS will give much greater area protection against ricochets.

It makes the most sense to wear it shooting.

A) safety B) train like you fight

As pat McNarama points out “train like you fight” for most people should be focusing on handgun training in low light conditions with no tactical gear on.

Shoothouse training with an objective assessor behind you is invaluable.

I mean the RSOs and other range-goers will probably look at the armor-wearer wearily and wonder wtf he is planning, and if one were to tell them that one was worried about accidents, then the other range patrons will probably be offended by the apparent lack of faith in their safe firearm handling abilities...

Well if fudds would stop muzzling me with their fuddy fives and .22 "skull bouncers" in the gun shop I will be a lot less concerned.

With good reason from the few times I've been to a public range.
