I wondered with riots, etc., going on, who has purchased body armor? Actually, it could have been your friend because I wanted to know what ballistic armor level was purchased and approximately what was the cost. My concern has been if I would have access to my armor when I needed it? Naturally, I will not wear this daily in case I have a self defense situation but more likely when a threat situation is known like a riot through my suburb neighborhood or more generalized fighting breaks out. It is nice that even the level II armor will cover all basic handgun ammo except 357 Sig. and 44 mag. For a self defense situation, the level II would be great but moving into larger conflicts the potential of being shot at by a rifle rises greatly. Thanks in advance for sharing.
