Some people's "thing" is just running around and shooting; for others, a physical and/or mental challenge are what they're after. So some of us do wear not only empty plastic plates but filled or training plates. Just shooting is boring: too simple, too easy. So we aspire to accomplishing a specific objective, to rise to the physical challenges involved in doing so.

Nothing worth doing is easy. (but not everyone subscribes to that)
Well said.

I love my heavy plates, my kevlar and my real military helmet.
