    I think body armor is entirely appropriate for a robot armageddon scenario. Just sayin'.

    No, it wasn't under $300. If I recall correctly it had cost me maybe $350, new. It's just the vest, like what you'd wear over your tee shirt.

    Here, I did a quick google search and found a similar product for a similar price: http://www.bodyarmoroutlet.com/conte...ody_armor.html

    It was FREE! But I hate wearing that ****.

    There's only one thief in the Army. Everyone else is just trying to get their **** back.
