My friend gave me a Ballistics IIIA vest that he said he didnt need anymore. Its woodland camoflauge and I was wondering if anyone has any expierence attaching fastening devices to it. Say a horizontal holster on the front or a magazine pouch or whatever.
Problem is there is no molle or any specific way to attach these items without sowing them on. Any suggestions?
I dunno there bud. My cousin gave me two vests. I have a navy seals Ciras vest and an israli made copy. I dont have the ballistics plates but can get them for under $200. I had no issues with mine but they're more like molle vests. I'll see about taking some pictures if your interested in seeing how i have mine laid out.
Things must be getting kind of tough at the ER?
I know the value of a vest in LE operations, but where/why would you wear one?

Isn't a vest like that designed to go underneath the LBE?
the experience or sanity of the others in the next lanes. Though it is very well supervised place I think a vest could add
a tiny measure of protection from a neighbor's ND or a ricochet.
Its an interesting coincidence that you asked about this this morning. I was dressing to go shooting and my wife
told me to put on my vest. I guess because of what was on my mind I thought she meant a ballistic vest and since I don't
own one I gave her that "what you talking about" look. She got upset because I didn't understand her. Then she
walked to a closet and took out a down filled vest, tossed it at me, and said "VEST, THIS IS A VEST."

Ok maybe I wasnt being completely honest. I dunno just have it and was looking for some uses.. I theorized that I could done it if an armed intruder entered my home or something to that effect. I also like projects... this is a future one. My current project is my rifle storage room/concealed room in my garage Im working on.
Though I will tell you working in the ER has made me want my CC moee rhan anthing else. Twice patients have approached me in an uncomfortable way that made me nervous.. all ended peacefully but I deal witu psyche patients and addicts all the time. I had my son with me the last time.. and I fear the plausible.

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt
Sweat is the enemy of ballistic armor. My vest gets replaced every 5years, not that it wouldn't work, but they are more likely to fail after that age, especially if worn daily. If that pic you posted is similar to what you have, it probably wasn't worn much.
