    Civilians with Plate Carriers

    How do you guys feel about civilians having plate carriers? Me being a civvy myself I see a lot of guys running them at the matches I shoot at.

    Is there a real reason to own one for a guy like me?

    I would want one only for when, I hate to say it, the SHTF AKA mass chaos in the states and I have to defend myself from the enemy whoever it may be.

    I was just curious as to what your guy's thought were. Not that I care or anything...
    ATTENTION: What you just read may very well contain sarcasm! Judge me accordingly.

    I have a higher opinon of dude wearing a PC (with plates) than just a chest rig.
    Then again, I also think that if you think you are going to be in a gunfight you should probably protect yourself appropriately instead of carrying 600% more ammo than you will need.

    But hey, I'm an opinionated dick.

    For classes or matches where you're around other shooters who may or may not be as serious followers of the golden rules, I don't have a problem with it. Accidents happen, anything that will reduce your chances of a sucking chest wound aren't a bad idea when the probability increases. For SHTF, you better train your ass off with it.
    I'm not cool. I just do this stuff for fun.

    This X 1 million.

    Apart from the very practical security offered at classes where you do NOT know or trust the people youre training with, it is my hard-earned, god damned money and if you so much as judge me for how I spend it then you can go straight to hell.

    Yep, that's basically it in a nutshell.

    I have a plate carrier, with plates, that I've worn to the last few classes, because I have a class in a month REQUIRING armor. I don't want to be THAT guy who doesn't know how to move in said armor, so I've been using the classes to get comfortable doing so.

    That and I like my body as is without extra holes, and paying 1500 bucks to help keep that status quo is fine in my book.

    Yes, yes you are. But just because you cut the bullshit and shoot straight with people doesn't make you a less loveable opinionate dick.

    I don't mind for civilians to wear and run a PC. As was stated free country and all.......
