Sell ONLY to Law-Abiding Adults
Body Armor is
a purely defensive item but, regardless, we are very sensitive to
the possibility of vests being misused by criminals. By buying a vest
from us, you certify that you are law-abiding, of adult age,
and have no felony convictions. We do not sell to felons or minors.
It is against
the law for a person convicted of a 'crime of violence' to possess Body
Armor under federal law (unless required by your employer, see,
Sec. 931). It is also illegal under state law for a convicted
felon to own armor in many states.
with law enforcement to stop the use of vests by criminals.
have any criminal purpose in mind (or resell your armor to a criminal)
you do NOT want to have bought Body Armor from us! (The exception
in our Privacy Commitment is
to respond to inquires from law enforcement where armor we sold is
suspected to have been involved in a crime.)
We reserve the
right to refuse to sell to anyone, in our sole discretion. By buying
body armor you guarantee that you are not legally prohibited from
owning firearms, or body armor, and also that you are not associated
with any criminal group, in any way, and have only a lawful purpose
for owning body armor.
U.S. EXPORT CONTROL LAWS
IV Rifle Plates
Ballistic Helmets with Rails and / or Night Vision Shrouds
under the jurisdiction of the International Traffic in Arms
Regulations (ITAR), and are subject to the export control
laws of the U.S. Government. Export or retransfer of Rifle
Plates or Helmets with Accessories by any means to any foreign
end user, or for any other end use, whether in the U.S. or
abroad, without the written approval of the U.S.
Department of State, is prohibited.
is often an exemption for Rifle Plates for a U.S. person taking
their personal protection with them in their luggage, and
returning the armor to the US. For the requirements,
One of the forms required may be found here.
for transgressions of export regulations can be severe, so
be sure to exercise careful due diligence.
Level III Rifle
Plates, Level III-A and Level II vests, and Ballistic Helmets (without
Rails or Night Vision attachments) are controlled by the Bureau of
Industry & Security (BIS). These items can often be exported with
the appropriate export license exemption, but only when going to approved
countries. Some countries, or larger quantities, may require an export
license. See the BIS
We are careful to comply with U.S. export regulations. You,
the customer are responsible for complying with your country's import
regulations, and paying all import duties and taxes and fees. Please
be sure to check regulations and taxes in your jurisdiction before
from buying Body Armor unless the sale is face to face (or unless
the buyer is a police officer, Police Department, or military). We
cannot ship to residents of Connecticut who are not police or military.
As these provinces
often require a Body Armor license, we will ask you to provide us
documentation of your exemption status, or your Body Armor license
NO Armor is 100% Bulletproof
A 'bulletproof' vest or
other armor will protect you from the vast majority of pistol ballistic threats
you are ever likely to face. But there is always a tradeoff between more protection
and more wearability (and the constraint to stay within your budget). Please
- rifle rounds
- unusual high velocity
- pistol ammo fired from
a rifle barrel
- armor piercing ammunition
- sharp-edged or pointed
instruments (e.g., knives, icepicks, etc.), and/or
- other unusual ammunition
CAN defeat body armor.
Also, at some angles projectiles
can slide, or deflect off the edges of Armor, or ricochet. Furthermore, projectiles
that are successfully stopped by armor will always produce some level of injury,
resulting in severe bruising, broken bones, and possibly serious internal injury
or even death. Soft body armor defeats most pistol and shotgun projectiles,
but NO vest on earth makes you invulnerable to all threats. To
state the obvious, getting shot ALWAYS carries some risk.
Be aware that your head is
much more susceptible to blunt trauma than your body. ANY impact of a bullet on
a helmet WILL CAUSE INJURY AND CAN CAUSE DEATH. You put the odds more in your
favor with head protection, but, just as with ANY armor, no guarantee of invulnerability
can be made.
By buying Armor you assume
ALL risks of use or misuse, and agree not to hold us liable in any way.
In addition, YOU are responsible to ensure that your ballistic panels are positioned
inner side IN, and outer side OUT if applicable (check the inside vest panel
