At first it looked like you were making an Iron Man suit... I'd be interested to see if it will stop low-power bullets...

Maybe a .22 caliber...if it hits the plate and not the space between them....bet it would still hurt like hades without padding...

Due to an aesthetic change I'm going to have 2 plates available for testing....and I've got a good solide .22 rifle, plus a sawed off .410 with birdshot, 000buckshot, slugs, and .45 long colt as well as access to a .9mm....

Got the carvlar and resin from compositeenvisions.com

The steel I got from home depot, the leather I had in a tooling kit, the rivets and rivet gun from O'Reilly auto parts...

I'd like to have a forge but the apartment complex kind of frowns on sources of fire being in/near the building..

The self-confidence of the warrior is not the self-confidence of the average man. The average man seeks certainty in the eyes of the onlooker and calls that self-confidence. The warrior seeks impeccability in his own eyes and calls that humbleness. The average man is hooked to his fellow men, while the warrior is hooked only to infinity.
