The point of only one hand free I wouldn’t consider criticism. to give some idea what I was looking at you would need to find http://www.bulletproofme.com and look up the ballistic shield in use. Its probably someone who has an AR pistol or a subgun who would use it. One hard plate where the hand holds it to cover and its about 2×3 feet in size. Not perfect but in use with a regular vest a plus for static defense. Driving around since its not hard it could be hung on the inside of a vehicle door. That appeals to me. I’m a homeowner not a soldier so the sheriff won’t let me use the tactical armored vehicle lol.
