If your going to buy a ballistic shield on GSA Advantage , you should keep these things in mind.
1.) Don`t buy a shield that does not have a picture that accurately represents the piece of equipment advertised .
2.) Verify the "Operational Weight" of the shield and not the "Bait and Switch" weight posted without view ports , lights, and accessories.
3.) Do your research prior to placing an order, This is a small industry and all relevant information is easily assessable on the manufactures web site .
4.) Check web pricing and make sure you are not missing a sale on the gear.
5.) A (7) Year Warranty adds more value to your purchase than a (5) year Warranty.
Hope this helps , don`t fall for the retail rip-off.
