    armor package is live. if it can fit my fat ass and be comfortable, it can fit you. I will be getting the carriers on order today, plates will be ordered as needed for orders, so we dont have a bunch laying around. we will order a couple plates for in store testing so keep an eye out for videos

    People have asked me if I consider myself a good or bad person. The truth of it is, I don't know or care. I have been called both. I like to think I have saved more lives than I have ended. Either way, I can still sleep at night.

    Front and back plates?

    How do you pre-order the correct size?

    they can expand a lot, they are sized for the plate not the body. the same carrier will fit everyone in the shop. like i said, if it can fit my fat ass, you're good

    Having a hard time deciding what plates to go with. Probably won’t need to wear it covered often but could be handy. The Level IIIA would cover most needs but do I get the L210 to get the max protection even though getting shot with a pistol is more likely than rifle in my situation. Would love to hear some thoughts on this before I purchase.

    For the weights published, I'd get the rifle plates. There are enough rifles and pistols in 5.56 popping up at protests that I'm concerned. I think we're well past th "shop owner dealing with robbers" stage of things.

    Thanks, kinda leaning that way anyway so I think that’s what I’ll do.

    As a rule of thumb I wear armor concurrent with how I'm armed for the situation. For most of the guys here if you have the forewarning that you need to strap on armor that also means you should probably be bringing a rifle.... So dress accordingly

    I have overt rifle plates/carrier. What I don’t have is a lower profile kit.
    So I ordered the lighter plates.
