    Is Kevlar available for civilian use? What would one expect to pay for such a thing? Also, do they make kevlar helmets that most bullets won't go through? Is there any kind of bulletproof eyegear like goggles?

    Sure. Google for kevlar armor and have a look. It's probably safe to say "you get what you pay for" and pay you will. But experts will be able to tell you which type/make/manufacturer of armor gives you the most bang for your buck.

    There are some types of body armor that do a pretty good job of stopping pistol rounds but rifle rounds are a different story.

    None I've heard of. Eye protection is to protect against unexpected and relatively mild events, not direct hits.
