Oh, just come out and say it - Titty Ricochets

The U.S. Capitol Police alerted its rank-and-file this month that FBI lab testing of long-approved body armor has uncovered a previously unknown flaw that can subject female officers to deadly ricochets from bullets. 

The advisory, obtained by Just the News, revealed that the FBI first detected the problem, known as the "skip effect," when it "departed from legacy testing protocols in a desire to test body armor in an 'as worn' condition, and to account for various body shapes and sizes."

  1. Titty ricochets only happen to officers with C cups and above. Gotta wonder if it wouldn't also apply to fat male cops with man boobs.

    1. Gotta wonder if it doesn't apply to fat bellies too.

  2. The 16th Century solution to thus problem (impacts of spears ans arrows) was a "V" shaped bar attached to the breastplate just below the neck, to deflect up and out. John in Indy

  3. It's why enhanced suits have neck protection. But you can't have a wearable, concealable body armor with a friggin kevlar donut on top, so, well, embrace the suck.

    Spalling is always a major problem with vests. It's why lots of preppers cover their chicken plates with bed-liner compound as it tends to catch the spalling and bouncing.

  4. Titty Ricochet? I prefer the much more alliterative term, booby bounce.

  5. Titty ricochet is too cumbersome for day to day usage. I suggest "tittychet" as a more elegant term. It sort of rolls off the tongue.

  6. Never happens when they’re making a man a sandwich.
    Maybe they should think about that,
    When making life-style choices…

  8. A better solution would be to stop the perverse practice of giving women jobs requiring the use of weapons.
