Richard Lee: That's what I was thinking too. After seeing videos of the effects of spall ripping up plate carriers so badly, some of plates fall out on the ground, raw steel plates scare me.
J Thibert: Where is your spall protection, bullet fragments will tear your arms,chin groin up.
Gear Websites: 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
Gear Websites: Well I don't sell it. but I think thiers is around $200 for a set as well
Gear Websites: hard to have overkill when talking about armor IMO, lol
people use lots of stuff, some as simple as duct tape
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.
Gear Websites: yes they usually defect the copper and lead somewhere.. but is alive and wounded better than dead? some people wrap them in something thinking that might help catch the frags yes soft armor under the plates is basically a necessity
Peyton Sexton: Where can I get steel plates
Nakanokalronin: LOL, just checked out his other vids, it is him!
Nakanokalronin: This guy sounds and talks like the guy from Gunwebsites.
Theshawn: Question: Where did you get the carrier?
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)
DRAGO INSPIRATION: weight???
Gear Websites: @5687678
anyone can buy them, all it involves is paying for them
PlaceHolder PlaceHolder: Can a regular Joe buy these plates? If so, does it involves a lot of paper work and tax stamps?
Gear Websites: @anticannoneer
think dart vs hammer
a dart can poke a hole with less mass, while a hammer can make a large dent but not pierce the material
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.
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.
Lucas Trakinat: @TheHunterHatfield pelet guns lol

keep learning, no one said anything about hitting 'harder' it's physics and materials..
an icepick will puncture easier than a boxing glove..
