  1. Looking For - Want To Buy From Vendors
    Hey everyone, I need a full head armor cover that will protect my face at the most .308. I need really good bullet proof full helmets. I know they sell some, I just forgot where I can buy them. They're are no locations near by with them, but I was hoping you could refer me to a site.
  2. DIY - Do It Yourself
    After conducting a decent amount of research and experimentation, I have decided to put out some information that I have learned about DIY Homemade Body Armor and material penetration capability of bullets in general. I put together a video about the topic. As a disclaimer do not use this as a...

    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?
  4. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    I am looking to buy a plate carrier and armor. For price I would like to spend no more than 300 dollars on the carrier alone. 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...

    So I have been thinking about getting a set of steel plates to be an extra set. I already have a dragon skin vest, another carrier with 10x12 of Dragon skin and a set of sapi plates. But I thought leaving any of those in my truck to accompany my go back is a bad idea. So I managed to get a...

    Hey, so I'm excited I ordered some more body armor. Figured I'd post here some of what my general survival load out, and home defense gear. So the plates/ carrier I ordered is this "Operator II Plate Carrier w/ Armor & Pouches - Olive Drab" I ordered it from AR500 Armor and it has 6x8 side...
  10. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Ok, So I have seen many many posts on this site and other about making things "bullet proof". The thing that as gotten my blood up, is that so many people post things like "only and idiot would do that." or "Future Darwin Award". It makes me mad. First because it assumes that a factory can make...
  11. Ladies Section
    Any ladies here have suggestions or personal experience? Plate carriers aren't so awesome if you aren't flat chested. I've been thinking about picking up a level II or III vest but most of the female rigs out there seem really cheap, or offer very little coverage. Any personal experiences or...

  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm looking into getting a vest, and wanted some suggestions. At first I was looking into plates, because I was worried about the "shelf life" of a vest, but then again I dont know anything in this area. What do you suggest between the two, practically speaking? Do you have a particular...

  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Today on local public radio I heard an announcement of a local guy's arrest. Charges included possession of an illegal firearm, AND illegal possession of body armor. I had never heard of a bullet proof vest being illegal before. A web search seems to reveal that armor is legal for civilians who...
  16. Non-Lethal Weapons & Self Defense
    How many of you have gone the route to purchase bullet proof vests and / or body armor ( flak jackets ) ? Last year we had the opportunity to get new custom made bullet proof vests made for both of us. I took the plunge and paid the money. I thought it might be worth it in the future...
