I went on the website for Blackhawk and was looking at some of their stuff. When I got to their armor products I noticed they all said "military and LEO" only.
Is this legal ? Do these jerks think that only LEO and military are worth protecting their lives ?
Some States may prohibit possession of armor products by non Leo/military.
Lower the crime rate by lowering the criminal survival rate!
When people say 'God Bless America' I'm sure He says, "I gave you Texas!"
If there is an exception cut of for cops (I guessing there is ~ and no, I am not looking into the world of anti-trust laws ~ its a quagmire) is not know for certain to me.
If they can't build a reliable accessory product - see our recent discussion of failing plastics in SERPA holsters - why in the heck would you buy a self-defense product like armor? Like buying a known junk gun, why?

Body armor is a personal choice and it has many uses. I wear a vest when I shoot at the "gravel pit" for obvious reasons. I have several in my kit from soft concealable to plate carriers. I do not wear armor all the time (but when I do, I'm in seattle), only when I feel I will "need" it. Try Ebay, and save some bucks.

13. Is it legal for civilians to buy Body Armor?
In general, yes - for law-abiding folks. A felony conviction makes possession of Body Armor illegal under federal law and in many states.
We have had civilian clients with many different civilian needs for Body Armor so we understand the need for vests for civilians. Our policy is to only sell to law-abiding adults who have a lawful purpose for Body Armor. (A parent or guardian may buy for a minor with a legitimate need.)
Residents of Connecticut are prohibited from buying Body Armor unless the sale is face to face (or unless the buyer is a police officer, Police Department, or military). We can't ship to Connecticut, or even accept credit cards billed there...
We cannot ship to residents of Connecticut
who are not police or military.
Some states are considering new legislation to prohibit or restrict sales of Body Armor to civilians, e.g., New York. If you are in a state that passes such a law, you would be well advised to make your Body Armor purchase now before it becomes much more expensive and inconvenient, if not prohibited altogether.
"Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington
LEO are on one such list, and the others...well you know who is on them.
Unfortunately gun-owners or non-LEOs are not on any.
