Bullet Proof Vest - SURPLUS - Small/Medium
British Police Issue Surplus Bullet proof vests and I'm offering them to you far below the original price. The rating on the vests when they were tested was for 9mm, .45 cal. and .357 magnum, 5 shots each at point blank range.
The unemployment rate and drug abuse influence the chance of a "home invasion" occurring in your neighborhood. There are also few chances for opportunities. Cities experiencing high levels of vehicle thefts, burglaries, and home invasions, truly need their citizens to think seriously about acquiring such devices as bulletproof vests and other forms of body armor.
Even cities with lots of guns and ammo, but what about your shield. A bulletproof vest should make your survival effectiveness list.
Armor History -
Please don't confuse "bulletproof" with the medieval armored knights long ago. The weapon of choice back in those days was a handgun that fired a lead ball of .30 to .50 caliber (7.6-12.7mm diameter) from a gun with a 6-8 inch length (15-20cm) barrel. The resulting dent showed the "bulletproof" of the armor's strength in Battle.
Modern Day Terminology -
The proper modern term nowadays is "bullet-resistant clothing or body armor."
Does a bulletproof vest prevent you from being stabbed? Kevlar is good against bullets because most bullets tend to flatten out on impact, and the Kevlar is then able to catch the "round" without breaking through the fiber. Armor-piercing bullets do not flatten out, so go right through.
The vast majority of vests do NOT provide stab protection; however, a few companies have off-stab protection & multiprotection handgun/stab protection plates.
There are "stab-resistant" vests and body armors. They have various ratings and can prevent many types of slashing and puncture wounds. However, they are not bullet-resistant and are primarily used in places like prisons where stabbings and slashing are potentially severe injuries.
