Isn't normal procedure to jump 200 feet in the air and scatter one's self over a wide area?

I made the right bat for the right people at the right time and more importantly it was tested properly and I thank AOC whole heartedly for a that test.

Yes i know very good friend of mine is in bomb disposal

Most cost effective way is to have designs and friends that can make it but if you are buying off the shelf, not cheap for a good one

The first cricket box was used in 1874.  The first cricket helmet was introduced in 1974. So, it took 100 years for men to twig that their brains were also worth protecting.
