For those who think shooters are never gorey enough, now there is clothing to “feel” the action. TN Game’s Third Space Vest is the brainchild of Dr. Mark Ombrellaro, adapted from one used in medicine to simulate and study injuries. It includes 8 different zones, from a gunshot wound to an explosive force. Available in November for $189.00, it comes in two sizes and 3 designs.
