$400 I got a barely used USMC MTV (modular tactical vest) with a complete Sapi Plate set!! he also threw in a older style but still awesome USMC kevlar type IIIA vest, a NEW ILBE assault pack and a med-reg marpat gortex jacket. im f'n stoked. the MTV is worth atleast $1000 with the plates. anyway just thought i would gloat a little bit. i had a good day.

Any type of plate armor is legal in the states.
Unless yer a felon.

they are legal yes. some plates are illegal but most of the time they are perfectly fine to own. Google "sapi plates" or eBay "sapi plates". they go for allot on there.

These plates are level IV ESAPI "hard" plates meaning they can take the impact of multiple 7.62 M80 Ball projectiles or one strike from a 30 cal. bullet. level IV and up is illegal to the general public "civilians". The levels can change depending upon if you have Kevlar body armor added in. this vest also has Kevlar IIIA sown into it. meaning this vest with plates can stop multiple 30cal strikes. tell me thats not bad a$$. only military and police are allowed to own these plates. so technically yes i am in the wrong for owning these. do i care?... NO. is it gonna keep me up at night?... ABSOLUTELY NOT. the only reason they dont want us to have these is because they want to be able to kill us if they have to. well thats BS. i reserve the right to protect myself if SHTF. every idiot with his Dads hand me down hunting rifle is gonna be running around trying to be Johnny law. screw that. If the unthinkable happens this thing goes on and im out the door. im Prepared. now the question is... can i run in it? hehe thats a different story. and just FYI all body armor is illegal for a convicted felon. unless he or she has somehow gotten a job as a bounty hunter or a security guard and their local Sheriff has signed off on it which is a likely scenario.
