I want to see him nullify gunfire by using stealth and by confusing and disorienting armed opponents. A smoke grenade being the classic methodology.

Besides as has been stated numerous times....no matter how much armor is on Batman's torso, his lower face is always unprotected....making the rationale for extensive armor somewhat frivolous.
This....the Batman I am thinking of doesn't need to be armored because by the time you see him it's already too late.
