    Oh no!! Now all the mall ninjas will be getting ideas for the "magazine bullet proof vest," not only does it stop bullets, it hold them too!

    That's amazing. It kind of looks like a Glock mag but I can't tell for sure. That would be surprising considering they have a polymer shell.

    They don't fit in mag wells very easy.To be honest it sounds like the only thing that may have really helped them is the guys gun kept jamming,they fired about 13 rounds and struck the suspect once according to the story

    Glad the officer is ok and they caught the perp. However, several shots and they think one of them hit the suspect? Where did the rest of them go?

    I'm surprised they even got one hit with the trigger weights their sidearms are supposed to have.

    It doesn't look like any of my Glock magazines. A quick search for NYPD's approved sidearms makes me think it is for the S&W 4506....maybe.

    The guy should go buy a lottery ticket. I'm glad he is alright, too.
