Theshawn: Question: Where did you get the carrier?
Rushm0r3: Actually there is a class three face mask on the market. It is available in
either 3/4 mask for helmet use and full mask. Just saying...
GearBuyersGuide: Yup, this is the channel where we post all the "non-gun" stuff and gear
Check out the better forums (lightfighter, 10-8, get off the x, etc)
anticannoneer: i'm confused on how a 223 can go through, while a 30.06 can't? will the
plate crack into fragments with 223 and bend with a 30.06? because even
though a 30.06 has more joules, the 223 travels much faster? i'm not really
sure if a 223 has more joules than a 30.06 but i'd love some clarification
if you'd be so kind.
GearBuyersGuide: @WORDECODETHIT Since there is no such thing, of course not
sneakybadger760: how thick are those steel plates?
Lucas Trakinat: @TheHunterHatfield pelet guns lol
fuckcomments: The real question is can a canadian pay for them?
Prometheus3052: steel plate has an advantage ceramic doesn't. It can serve as an impromptu
skillet and a serving plate =) All you need to add is a spork to the vest.
TheHunterHatfield: @GUNSFOREVER1 How would that even be fun? No one would ever be shot through
those thick plates. You wouldn't feel it.
PlaceHolder PlaceHolder: Can a regular Joe buy these plates? If so, does it involves a lot of paper
work and tax stamps?
MrFREEDOMFIGHTER7: first of all anybody wearing a steel plate into battle should be advised to
make themsevles a spall guard fragments have a tendancy to shoot strait up
r down after a hit take a new or older kevlar panel and wrap it around the
plate i would say use at minimum 10 layers then wrap duct tape over the
kevlar to hold it in place also wear a yoke collar with throat protection
this should take care of most probs involved with using steel as long as it
aint ap or m855 rounds it should be able
Ninja 87: Thank You! Have a great weekend.
Nakanokalronin: LOL, just checked out his other vids, it is him!
HiCapacity: Thanks man!
GearBuyersGuide: They are not website pros is all.. they are not doing anything 'shady' Ex
Law Enforcement, and they are at most AZ gunshows .. always the same prices
HiCapacity: Are you the guys from gunwebsites? If so, what's up?!... I'm buying some
plates in a few days here, I was wondering where I can get a size small
carrier, preferably concealable. Not on ebay D:!! Mike
lightnight3: Why does everyone feel the need to cus? If you think airsoft is weak fine
it's a free country and I don't need your approval but at least be mature
about it. Keep it clean, it will get you farther in life.
MrFREEDOMFIGHTER7: to take upwards of 30 hits realistly 10-20 thou the m855 and xm109 and any
steel core 7.62 inside of 25 yards will punch straight through this 90% of
the time outside of 50 yards those rounds prob penetrate 25% at 75-100+
yards it should stop it the 7.62 tungsten core round will punch through no
matter waer you are your dead if that hits you these figures should be
pretty accurate this is based on what ive seen different plates could
always produce diff results + enviroment ect
GearBuyersGuide: @Josephcarlsonstrom not airsoft
Peyton Sexton: Where can I get steel plates
GearBuyersGuide: hard to have overkill when talking about armor IMO, lol people use lots of
stuff, some as simple as duct tape
RamoneTalarico: @WORDECODETHIT There are Kevlar Face masks that you can buy that will stop
up to a 44mag they will run you around $150-220
GUNSFOREVER1: @GearBuyersGuide There actually is a few facial armor.
BlackElementTV: Check out this video. theblackelement has a video of this plate taking 6
shots from an AK47.
mastersnip02: a 30 (0) 6 its it's pronounced 30 ( ought ) 6 (30-06) sorry im just a
backwoods country boy. just one thing that got undrer my skin lol.
GodOfWar5341: @GearBuyersGuide can you recommend a good place to get some good plates.
Casper48022: damn.. fix the ring.
janius777: @WORDECODETHIT joke? in fact there is some... but "only" IIIA-level (9mm or
.44mag) :) really I saw a "hockey-style" smooth profile mask and also in
the military there is a facial armour visor atachable to the helmet - test
with .44 mag is on youtube: watch?v=URcKpNqPIfY
polevaulter6916: because arisoft hurts that much? lol
smklan: @ShawnPangle Looks like a Condor Plate Carrier.
ThePresticle1: @GUNSFOREVER1 Jerk,jerk,jerk-Oh yeah-almost there,wanna be military but I
don't wanna raise my right hand and get sworn in,so I'll just jerk it and
TnAproducts1: I just checked our web site. The pictures are photos, not links. Our phone
number is listed on the site if you have any questions. Jennifer
GearBuyersGuide: They had them for $100 a plate (rifle) at the SAR show this weekend
GearBuyersGuide: Well I don't sell it. but I think thiers is around $200 for a set as well
GUNSFOREVER1: @TheHunterHatfield It's called milsim=Military simulation in which players
play realistically as possible.
TheHunterHatfield: @Josephcarlsonstrom That was a stupid question. It's a STEEL plate. What
the freak kind of airsoft are you playing?
hcdub: Interesting, what could you wrap the plates with to catch fragments? What
if you put a soft trauma plate in front of the steel as well as soft armor
in back of the steel? Is that over kill or would it help as far as catching
the fragments and preventing blunt force trauma?
GearBuyersGuide: Good qurestion, it's super strong now, but after getting old or abused it
might not be as strong, time will tell, but we don't plan to do a stress
test on this gear...yet
GearBuyersGuide: well they are rated to stop .308 but I'm not sure if that means they can
stop 5.56x45 too
J Thibert: Where is your spall protection, bullet fragments will tear your arms,chin
Josephcarlsonstrom: and also how solid/sturdy is this vest?
PaARMA: Does having the velcro at the bottom ever present a risk of the plates
falling out after getting hit or moving a lot? I can't really tell how
strong the velcro looks on the video.
isaiahman1234567: can u get plates being a civilan
lightnight3: @gunsforever1. When I use carriers in airsoft I use plastic plates it gives
the looks, wear, and protection needed without the weight. And most of the
guys I play with are either in the military, wish they could but got turned
down, or are retired so pull your head out of your butt (thus isn't to you
guns, I just can't remember the other guys name)
GearBuyersGuide: This is Steel Plate Body Armor
akzo74: @GearBuyersGuide that's not a fair comparison, besides if you do the math
the areal energy density for the 30-06 is still higher than the .223. Look
at the M2 AP, it's a 30-06 and it out penetrates it's 5.56 AP counterpart.
And you mentioned that steel has an advantage in that it's thinner than
ceramic, but don't you still need a trauma plate backing if you don't want
to get seriously jacked up after getting shot?
GearBuyersGuide: @TheDEMONKING0000 keep learning, no one said anything about hitting
'harder' it's physics and materials.. an icepick will puncture easier than
a boxing glove..
GrenMoyo: @RobWarrens it's obviously not rifle rated if a 223 will zip through....i
got .25 inch steel plates that use AR500 steel, and i've seen that crap
stop 2 shots from a .338 lapua magnum at about 40 yrds even after being
shot around with 5.56 "armor piercing" green tips (did nothing), M80 ball
"308" (did nothing) and even throwing 12 gauge slugs at it.... it's
indestructible practically. The ones that i have though i wouldn't want to
be shot by anything above a 30-06 M2 AP rounds (black tips)
GearBuyersGuide: One of our sponsors sells these armor plates and carriers for $200 I
think.. look up Arizona Armor he mostly does gun shows though (trying to
get him online with the armor)
