    Another level of protection

    For those of you concerned with workplace violence or simply was to have an added measure of protection in your daily enviroment this might be for you.

    Home - Discreet Body Armor

    I remember years ago Massad Ayoob marketed, or endorsed, discreet body armor that was concealed in a fanny pack. It was pretty good stuff as you would always have it with you.

    When they bring the price down to a reasonable level, I might consider it.

    Yeah, it is pretty pricey. That's why I carry an old speed limit sign with me everywhere I go. Better safe than sorry!

    That was a very good idea. I could see a good use for it with teachers, bankers, lawyers, judges, etc.

    I agree its a little pricey but if you used once you would be glad you had it.

    Use to have a guy at my club who claimed to be into some pretty covert stuff with the government, always heading to South America "on business". Claimed his brief case was armored and all he had to do was throw it up as a shield when the SHTF. One day he never came back from one of his trips, guess he couldn't get it up in time to help himself out. Don't know why I thought of him just now.

    Why would I pay $1,200 for a bullet proof computer bag when the computer is only worth about $900?

    Okay am I missing something? This a joke right? I mean come one! Who would wear a briefcase as body armor... A shooter will look a it and go for a headshot!

    It's got to be a joke
