    I'm not sure if they're even legal here in TN. I wouldn't wear one regularly but it might be nice to have "just in case." For the most part, I'd get more use from spending the cash on bulk ammo buys and range time. Does seem to leave the ol' bread basket exposed though, that's a natural target for edged weapons.

    Great buy! Nicely accessorized! I'd like to fit every member of the family with one for formal occasions.

    Congrats

    It looks like you get good coverage and can wear it all day! I too was wondering about the level 2 choice, but I would rather be wearing a L2 when the SHTF than have the 3A at home cuz it was too bulky or hot.

    I think it does make sense for anyone serious enough about defense, that they carry and train regularly with a concealed weapon, to have a vest to wear also. Not only do people at ranges make me really nervous (seeing all the holes in the walls never helps) but also, if you ever really need your CW, or pull it in a conflict, you might just need ballistic protection. Having a gun is not much help if the BG takes you out before you have a chance to fire. And not only do you need to think about the badguy's weapons, but your own. Even LEOs have been shot with their own guns (another reason to get threat level that will cover your own gun's ammo).

    It should also be noted that the trauma plates do help with blunt trauma caused by things other than bullets like steel-toed boots or bats or the handlebars of your motorcycle, as a few examples.
