    In my part of VA, I rarely see a bank with security glass (I think Chevy Chase Bank has it in some branches). Even after a series of several heists a few years back, none of the others seem to care.

    I've always wondered about 'bullet proof glass', it may stop ONE round of something, but how about SIXTY rounds?

    We don't have to many banks with glass deterrents in these parts either.

    Y'all should move to Oregon. I've never seen a bank with glass, even in the bad parts of town. Crime just isn't high enough to justify it. A few banks a year get hit across the state, and nobody ever gets shot while it's happening.

    All of our banks around here do, except my on-campus Suntrust, which has no glass. I'm not a huge fan of the glass but 98% of my banking is done online with online accounts so it's not a huge deal for me.

    Exactly. Or, a single 12ga shotgun slug is generally enough to crash right on through (same with a car windshield).
