first an for most in a sitx people wont even bother with body armor unless they are staying put where they are and defending, but remember like the
other people said that it would be taken off a officer or guard member but dontcha suppose that if someone already lost their armor that it probably
already took a couple of shots and would not be 100%, better than nothing but anit gonna help that much. Now you also have to take in to account
people bugging out, these people if they know what there doing wont even bother with BA to heavy to be lugging around the country side especially if
your walking after out of gas, so no worries at all with these folks, except they probably know the area and wont take likly to strangers, i guess it
depends on the people.
as for using AP bullets in SITX dont bother, you wont find any, you wont have any material to make your own, so dont hold your breath, the best thing
you could do to be prepared is be smart, it really comes down to what you will do, do you bug out to nature, or stay put and defend your
family/property?, get books you will need for medial uses, local plants ect.. get good medicial supplys, stock up on food reserves, canned,
dehydrated, get seeds for gardening in spring, get flour/salt/spices, get plastic, maybe some fuel/generator, tools. liquor or items to home brew.
and of course get ammo and reliable fire arm, classic bow and arrows. probably at least a sidearm and a rifle, take in to account weight if your
buggin out. dont forget a good knife and shapening stone, fishing/traping materials, maybe some camoflauge depending if you go all out or not. do
some research if you dont know how to field dress hunted animals, and of course water or use a filter or iodoine or vapor method for steril water,
and use water traps. and dont think your ever too good to eat bugs/roots to survive, this is why people die in nature from exposure they dont do
everything they could have to survive, last but not least get some fire, flint steel, 1million bic's what ever, 3 rules for survival for the
minimalist, shelter fire food.
