Sled, why be quiet when you could make valued contibutions? He does contradict himself as you point out. He makes a point about the potential to be attacked at any time but never has a solution either. My point in posting it is not whether people agree with him but to encourage making an assessment of their own needs. BTW, What type of vehicle was made within the last 60 years that has thick metal parts? As thick as the metal was on my 47′ ford truck it would never stop a bullet, not even from a 22lr.
I think he makes 2 good points. Load capacity and shelter.
