used bulletproof vest ?
 
I am opening a pawn shop and would like to wear a vest dealing with many fine upstanding inner city folks ;) does anyone have a idea where I can get a deal on a used vest ? I looked around but nothing really worth jumping on. And the ones I did see had nasty reviews like the vests were wore out and nasty.

Thanks

You also need to find out what level vest you think you might need.

Used body armor is a bit like buying a second hand condom.

You don't know where that thing has been.



Seriously, excercise caution- soft body armor has a "replace by" date. Understand that NOTHING is bullet PROOF, and there are different levels of protection.

Buy what you need, and take it off taxes as a business expense. Seriously.

Lol ever see a .50 bmg round hit 5" of bullet proof glass? It's a hell of a sight.

I've seen 30mm rounds from a GAU-8 go thru both sides of a t-72 tank. Now THAT was impressive!

That must be the tank gun everyone talks about. Lol
I've seen a 30-06 go through 3 1" sheets of BP glass. I know it's not much but it's not bad for your everyday deer rifle.

Shot a deer with a 30-06 this season. I'm using a .308 next year. 3006 wasted waay too much meat.

I would never buy used armor. My life is worth more than used equip.

Ok skip used idea. SO where do you think I can get a good price on new armor ? So a new level 3 should be fine ?

And seriously guys the moron stick up idiots in this city I doubt will have 50bmg or even understand a lever action 30-06.

But yes the idiots could have a ak-47 but now i'm looking at more of the idea that the moron thugs would walk in with a .38, 9mm, 380, 22, 25, 32, or at most 45.
