I popped in to a bike shop and tried on one of the jakets with the armor. well I can only say unbeleavable these think just lock you up and give support for standing and kneeling, its just like a FT jacket.
Is there any rules on something like this ?
I know we are Hunter field target. Not Motor field target.
Just asking the question..............
Its not the armour you need its the weight, a good heavy leather jacket helps with stability. Those jackets that 10m air rifle shooters wear help a lot. Not sure how they would work laying down, but sitting and standing they make a difference. I have a suede car coat that weights a ton often thought about trying it.
