    Is it legal to wear or carry ballistic protective gear in the FoBH in the public transportation? Was that a SIG 556 or CZ Bren on the CQB photo? Sure a wonderful place for rellaxation and practising shooting sports. "Who cares about a country without the BH."

      @Predrag Djuric Looked like a SCAR to me. The front sight is distinctive.

      I'm not aware of any laws on body armor.
