.45-70 vs. Kevlar Vest

<< < (2/2)

Ketchums Clayton:
Deming Police Officer Royce Bennett's experience was different.

On July 25, 1979, Bennett stopped Billy Ray Gibson, who fired one shot from a Marlin 1895 in 45/70, striking Bennett on his Second Chance vest. The vest stopped the 405 grain factory load, but the round's momentum pushed intact vest material into Bennett's chest cavity, stopping his heart.

Gibson was tried twice, had 2 hung juries, and walked.
