    I originally found this site in a search years ago. You were discussing a Plate Carrier I also had. Yours was setup way differently than all of mine. After finding the lost link to the site and password. I thought some of you would be interested in which Plate Carrier has become my main focus...

    I have a fiberglass canoe and an aluminum canoe. We always use the larger aluminum for camping. And take both for buddy canoe trips. i've seen a couple of videos and stuff involving fiberglass layers, layered with floor tiles(different kinds). Most often stopping pistol rounds. of course these...

    I know that you can buy body armor like AR500 armor on their website, but I am wondering if anybody knows of good brick and mortar stores that have plates in stock so that you can try them on and get a good fit. Do gun shows usually have body armor for sale?

The carrier may be used in actual combat situations and I would like to have a product that is more comfortable than what is issued. For plates I would like to see what...

I have some experience working metal for minor things, knives fence posts latches and locks etc., and some sculpting skills i could use too. How plausible would it be to make a...

    I bought a set of steel sapi plates on ebay as an extra set... But I know a lot of people have them as their primary plates. The issue is bullet frag. That nasty hot copper jacket screaming towards your jugular or shredding your nice plate carrier. Realistically and statistically you aren't...

    I can't take credit for this, and it has it's limitations, but if you want to make a panel van or bronco or whatever auto you plan on using as a bug out vehicle resistant to small arms fire for cheap, check out "lightestnebula9" on YouTube. I'd imagine if you also put spray on insulation or...

    Modular armor is available for a number of vehicles and I assume it would be cheaper than picking up a vehicle that has already been factory outfitted.a step further would be fashioning your own and upgrading your vehicles performance. Any realistic takes on this?

    From the new MythBusters episode, 'Coffin Punch' an improvised armor is made from "a high strength gypsum cement called FGR 95 which is filled with poly-proplene fiber. Now we've also inserted two layers of common bathroom tiles a little bit back from the front." It completely stopped 9mm, .45...
