Dragonskin is the best product by far. Anything Level 4 or higher requires a background check in order to purchase. Never heard of that being a requirement for anyone elses product.
I used to work at the Range Pistol Club and I can tell you that everyone involved in the testing have impeccable reputations. They also carry a full Dragonskin product line (google the range pistol club).
I have no idea who Dr. Frank is but if he spoke out against this outstanding product, he is, in my opinion in some liberal politicians back pocket.
Sorry gorknoids!
Amen brother.

There is a reason that BlackWater bought 10,000 units at the start of their contract and another 10,000 units once they secured in country protection for traveling dignitaries. It wasn't a coincidence.....

Default Here you can find some to...

I have tried the Undercover Level IIIA here Bulletproof Jackets and it works great. I really enjoy how they custom made it based on my measurements. This made it fit perfect.

I dont think i would purchase something like this off of ebay. Who really knows the condition? Thats something that I want to make sure is intact.

I got armor plates with mine as well and yes they are heavy but make you feel really safe. There are a lot of new products out there as well and i am keeping my eye out for them.

Default second chance body armor in action

Hi Guys, I just found this forum and thought I'd contribute a bit. It's legal for any civilian to buy a bulletproof jacket unless you are a convicted felon. Some states are trying to pass laws to only allow military and law enforcement to purchase body armor.

To follow up on the discussion about bulletproof jackets and to actually see a person get shot at point blank with a .308 and a 44 Magnum, wearing second chance body armor, I dug up a link to this video. You'll notice the guy is standing on one foot and doesn't even make a flinch when he gets shot. So the myth of getting thrown down from a gun shot, is a myth.
shot point blank

Good Source for bulletproof jackets
