Alright.. I live in GA. Im not a felon so it's legal for me to own and operate Armor haha.
My question is the following:
The nature of my work requires me to travel to Downtown Atlanta very often and sometimes after dark. I am paranoid (not in a schitzo way) of being the victim of a thug whom picked a time for me to get shot at his convenience. I do carry btw!
My budget for Armor would be around 500$ and I would prefer new of never used older armor but I want something as concealable as possible obviously for professional attire reasons.
Is there a preferred brand that you in the community would recommend? I know there are a lot of police members here whom might have good recommendations as well.
In addition I was thinking of level IIA. It seems to be the thinnest but stronger level. I do not need robocop armor. Just want something that could save my life in the end of the day.
I just do not want to be laying there in a pool of my own failure of preparation watching the lights fade out when there is clearly an available, and im quite sure, comfortable technology that could allow me to live to tell the story to others. Good Lord forbid that ever were to happen.
Thanks a million ya'll!
Oh and I still cant understand why in some states civilians are not allowed to utilize body armor in their normal day to day clothing? It makes no sense for a law abiding citizen to be denied their constitutional right of self defense and whatever method they choose to carry that objective out.
