      Another type of spam...This poster has confused the AK outdoors with a zombie prepper forum.

      However, it did remind me of an idea I submitted years ago to mythbusters. You know how in movies couches and easy chairs stop bullets? Having had an opportunity to shoot a couch in my youth I wondered what it would take to make a couch bullet proof. I have been waiting to see the results of the mythbusters testing for years now. Tested bullet proofing a car with phone books so where is my bullet proof couch?

            I saw one made on a prepper show. Waited the whole show to see him test it. As I recall he finally took a shot from his pal with a shotgun successfully (sort of). He was gonna make some 'improvement' when he got out of the hospital! (Ok, I made that part up. )

              Yeah - make out of the same material you use for your foil helmet.

                ....and then you wear it while hunting in Alaska.

                    WHY would you want to wear a BPV in the first place?
                    Secondly who is going to test it OH by the way once it has been tested it is no longer protective its compromised
                    Third WHY would you think it should be in the hunting forum?

                      This isn't the place for it, but just to give some good info, I want to let you know that you can buy ballistic fiber for a very cheap price. You caould build a vest by layering these sheets in some sort of plate carrier. You can also do AR500 armor, but it is much heavier.

                        Let us know when you test it out. I'm sure we'll all want to see that show.

                          Ummm...Not so much...But I won't knock a person for trying to use their head and imagination. To each their own. There is no benefit to disparaging anyone, this is a place of information and friends, lets keep it that way.

                            This is a place to share information concerning Alaska outdoors, let's keep it that way.

                              I agree, but there is no need for responses that are borderline with disparaging comments. Just inform the person and move on.
