But hey i haven't used a whole lot of side arms so anyone...

    Ever had security guards follow you round a supermarket or other store?

    This happens to me a lot, though I've never shop-lifted in my life. Maybe I just look dodgy??? I'd be interested to know if there are many people for whom it has never happened. Incidentally it's pretty funny when it happens, it's like a game of peek-a-boo as they appear from round the aisle.

    Why are Bouncers/Doormen not given stab vests ?

    But it isnt the club goers duty to throw people out. Lots of bouncers have been stabbed and murdered. Common sense would say a stab vest was worth the £150 in this job.
