  • Is The Legacy Police Ballistic Shield The Best Ballistic Shield You Can Buy For The Money?
    February 18, 2023

    Is The Legacy Police Ballistic Shield The Best Ballistic Shield You Can Buy For The Money?

    The Legacy Ballistic Riot Shield is an ultra lightweight shield which offers Level IIIA protection. In fact, it's a must-threat protection shield in that it not only offers ballistic protection, but also protection against knives, edged weapons and blunt forces such as baseball bats, rocks and bricks. 

    NOTE: NIJ Level IIA can protect against 9mm Full Metal Jacketed Round Nose and .40 S&W Full Metal Jacketed ammunition, both of which are used in the majority of handguns. It can also stop similar handgun ammunition such as the 10mm Auto, .357 SIG, and even .45 ACP.

    NIJ Level II armor is capable of protecting against all of the above ammunition, as well as .357 Magnum Jacketed Soft Points and 9mm Parabellum rounds fired at a higher velocity.

    NIJ Level IIIA can stop all of the above ammunition, as well as 9mm Parabellum rounds fired from semi-automatic and .44 Magnum Jacketed Hollow Point rounds.

    At just 9 lbs. the Legacy Police Ballistic Shield is incredibly light, easy to carry and manipulate in tactical situations. What makes it even more of a pleasure to use is it's innovative cross strap. This cross strap allows the user to suspend the shield in front of their body, freeing up both hands for required tactical or emergency situations. During testing, this feature was found to be an absolute game-changer.

  • What's the difference between level 3 and level 4 body armor?
    August 31, 2022

    What's the difference between level 3 and level 4 body armor?

    How much does level 4 body armor cost?

    Because of their increased stopping power and advanced construction, level 4 body armor typically costs more than level 3 body armor. 

    Now, the following numbers are just averages. Prices vary between manufacturers. One of the biggest factors to look for is where the plates are produced. Many people on the internet feel that body armor produced overseas is inferior to armor produced domestically in the United States. Keep in mind these same people are posting these comment using a device that was produced overseas while sitting on a chair which was produced overseas. Point being, just because it was produced overseas, it doesn't mean it's inferior. And just because it was produced in the U.S. doesn't mean it's better. Choose your body armor based on the quality of the company and product. 

    When it comes to level 3 body armor, you can expect to pay anywhere from $300-$350 per plate. This seems to be the industry average. As for level 4 body armor, expect to pay anywhere from $450-$500 per plate.

    Body Armor Protection For Kids Backpacks, School Children, Office, Vehicle and EDC

    There have been more than 200 mass shootings in 2022 thus far. Sadly, at the time of this article, we are only 146 days into the year. That means there have been roughly 1.4 mass shootings per day since the beginning of the year. 

    According to FBI statistics, the overwhelming majority of these shooting incidents involve handguns. Yes, a percentage do involve AR-15s. However, for the most part, the actors in these incidents are using handguns. This is most likely due to the fact that handguns are much more easily concealed than rifles. 

    Recent advancements in body armor technology have lead to thinner, lighter and stronger protective panels. These lightweight panels can easily be stored in a child's backpack, a travel bag, in your vehicle or at your desk at work.

    How Much Does A Bulletproof Vest Cost?

    One of the questions I get asked the most while with friends and family is "How much does a bulletproof vest cost?" However, before I answer this question, I like to respectfully correct them on the language they are using.

    When it comes to body armor, you're really looking at two (2) options; soft body armor and hard body armor. Soft body armor is rated to stop bullets shot out of a handgun while hard body armor is rated to stop bullet shot out of a handgun and a rifle. That's a very elementary breakdown but I want to keep it super simple as many people reading this may have no clue about ballistics and body amor. If you're not one of those people, don't be offended. Just trying to keep things basic for those who are new to body armor and clueless about all this stuff.
