    Body Armor - Any Good?

    Same goes for soft body armor.
    Yep. Shot a bunch of panels(Second Chance, ABA, PACA IIA) with 96-2003 manufacture dates with Speer GDHP 9mm 124+P, 115gr 9mm ball, .38 Nyclad, 9mm HydroShok, GDHP 90gr .380 with no penetrations.



    When they kick out your front door
    How you gonna come?
    With your hands on your head
    Or on the trigger of your gun?

    If you're taking multiple rifle rounds to the torso, you probably have bigger problems then you're equipped to handle anyway.

      Its level 3 for $200, its a fair price, Should never use a steel trauma plate but should use the soft trauma plate

          I have 2 carriers setup with ar500 3+ plates. One has side plates, other is just front and back

          nothing wrong with having some laying around

            I have that setup from them...its heavy and the carrier not really designed to be an emergency throw on. It does the job but I wouldn't want to wear it for an extended period of time.

            I also got mine from them in about a week from the time I ordered it.
