    PRICE REDUCED TO $280

    I recall some posters here expressing interest in a bulletproof vest. I no longer work security on the north side of Kalamazoo so I have no reason to keep the one I have.

    This vest is like new. I only wore it for a few months. Size medium. I am 5'10" 170lbs and it fits me great with tons of room for a larger person (it's adjustable).





    This is my roommate modeling the vest. He just woke up!


    For sale in Kalamazoo. Local pickup preferred.

    Short answer: it's rated up to .44 magnum.

    Longer answer:

    From Wikipedia:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballistic_vest

    Level IIIA

    "New armor protects against 8.1 g (125 gr) .357 SIG FMJ Flat Nose (FN) bullets at a velocity of 448 m/s ± 9.1 m/s (1470 ft/s ± 30 ft/s) and 15.6 g (240 gr) .44 Magnum Semi Jacketed Hollow Point (SJHP) bullets at a velocity of 436 m/s (1430 ft/s ± 30 ft/s). Conditioned armor protects against 8.1 g (125 gr) .357 SIG FMJ Flat Nose (FN) bullets at a velocity of 430 m/s ± 9.1 m/s (1410 ft/s ± 30 ft/s) and 15.6 g (240 gr) .44 Magnum Semi Jacketed Hollow Point (SJHP) bullets at a velocity of 408 m/s ± 9.1 m/s (1340 ft/s ± 30 ft/s). It also provides protection against most handgun threats, as well as the threats mentioned in [Types I, IIA, and II]."

    You can find more information online, but there are the basics for you.

    As I said before, this is almost new. I only wore it for a few months.

    Oh and raciest. I didn't know we tolerated this kind of stuff on here, are we going to let this guy soil OCDO?

    This will cost you $0.02!

    God Bless

    Alright...somehow I had it in my head that "bulletproof" vests were illegal for civilian use in Michigan. Anyone?

    Only if you are a felon or are planning to use it in the commission of an unlawful act...

    Neat! I'd heard quite a while ago that it was illegal for civilian use and I just took that info for true. Never looked into it. Neat! Thanks, Ry.

    and besides, these towlies you speak of pretty typically have ak variants or other commie rifles more than capable of blasting a healthy hole through a IIIA anyways.

    I know. I've tried. x39 = warm knife.

    That said... I'd like to have me one of these. [most thugs aren't gonna run up and jack my wallet carrying a FAL]
