    Cheap tactical bullet proof vest

    Just curious as to what my options are when looking for a cheap level IIIa tactical bullet proof vest. I'm not looking for a concealed bullet proof vest since I am looking for one that has molle. I'm also looking for a vest that can carry rifle plates. I found one that is ~$350 but doesn't have molle. Please post ones ≤ $500. That would be my first options, if I can't find any others that I'll either go with a more expensive one or buy the one without molle and just get a chest rig or something. Thanks guys.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I bet you'll never use the words, "I should have bought the more expensive one!"

    I've had good experiences with bulletproofme.com as well. I bought a ballistic insert for my laptop bag - not as good as wearable body armor, but a whole lot more comfortable and inconspicuous.
    The more good folks carry guns, the fewer shots the crazies can get off.

    I didn't even know it was legal to wear concealed body armor.

    only thing it says in Indiana is it is illegal to knowingly commit a crime while wearing body armor.
