Re: What Did You Do Today To Prepare?

Despite great trepidation I ordered Battlesteel Lvl 4 plates from Botach, which finally arrived with only a 30 day delay despite being "in stock".

She's been recently updated to a 580 blued Mini-14. Since the ANTIFA/BLM protests out here, the call for more mags has been sounded. Also because of t...

Safelite Flexible Rifle Armor

https://safelifedefense.com/FRAS/?fbcli ... K_WPxMIViw

Have not done an in depth study of this; reminds me of Dragon Skin. Comparable to a plate carrier with IIIA base armor with main plates, side plates. No gaps.
