Don`t Buy AR-500 Ballistic Steel Plates !

Posted on May 20, 2017 at 10:20 AM Comments comments (0)

I hear more and more about AR-500 steel being used as ballistic S.A.P.I plates. AR-500 is not a company as much as is a product I.D . This is a steel with a 500 Brinell hardness used for industrial projects or range targets. This plate will not encapsulate the incoming round , only redirect it into your neck or arms. Plus or minus 5 degrees and maybe someone standing next to you.

 These plates are heavy , cheap , and have no expiration date so I understand there allure . But there is a reason no Military or Law enforcement agency in the world will deploy them . Don`t fall for this prepper scam . Pony up and buy real gear .

GSA Advantage (Tips on buying a Ballistic Shield on the GSA )

Posted on June 15, 2016 at 10:05 AM Comments comments (0)


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.

The most dangerous tip in Ballistic Protection

Posted on April 8, 2016 at 12:10 AM Comments comments (0)

The most dangerous tip to Law Enforcement ballistic protection is not the "Green Tip" it`s the "Blue Tip" . That`s the color ink in the pin of the administrators and politicians that fail to see the benefits of the simplicity of a piece of gear that has never killed anyone , but has saved hundreds.
