    The specifications state- "10 out of 10 people agree. Getting shot in the face sucks! " Now there, is some advertising genius behind this product's marketing.... ;)

    Might be helpful if your not going to move from your position. If someones shooting that close to your rifle it'll be useless in no time.Good luck trying to be slick getting through doorways.

    For a fixed position defense in a sandbagged fighting hole, maybe.

    Otherwise, no thanks.

    it would make sense for a pintle mounted SAW on a technical.

    otherwise, it‘s probably best used in a fixed position. The concept requires a trade off of mobility for protection. In some circumstances the trade off may be justified.. In other circumstances the trade off may not be justified.

    Theshield is not cheap, so another consideration is the opportunity cost. For the price of a shield system, which may only offer a marginal improvement in protection capability, the money may be better spent on body armour upgrades or better weapon systems.

    I think it's kinda cool, especially having seen the injuries a gunshot to the jaw can cause...
