Shucks, folks still get their hands broken on a fairly regular basis. Even with
the new hand armor standards. I do my damnedest to keep my hands from being hit
and would like to see the "hand shot" to remain illegal... Even steel gauntlets
fail and when they do it is usually bad. Just my two cents worth!
Good to see you here.
