Some advice would be much appreciated.
There's a company in Austin, better known as bulletproofme.com, that sells the exact IOTV vest that you wore in the military as well as a NIJ III-A variant designed to stop handgun bullets IAW NIJ specifications for level III-A armor vs high velocity metal fragments that the military IOTV was designed to stop. They also sell NIJ III and NIJ IV, steel, ceramic, and polyethylene plates that stop rifle bullets. If you need a helmet they sell those, too.
I prefer the concealable III-A full wrap vests to tactical vests and don't use rifle plates. There are concealable vests specifically made for women.
If I were you, I would have had that turd prosecuted.
I hope your wife is ok.
Unfortunately, now that everyone and their dog has a gun thanks to Obama and team, there's a lot of people with firearms that probably should never have been allowed to drive a car.
