The Alpha Shield was designed from the start to stop handgun cartridges only.  It generally stops big, blunt, and lower velocity projectiles well.  High velocity center fire rifle cartridges like those used in assault and hunting rifles WILL PENETRATE the shield.  For protection against rifle threats, please consider the Delta Shield or Bravo Shield.

    Optional Shield Light

    Hardcore Defense partnered with Fox Fury to offer the Taker B30 ballistic shield light.  Fox Fury is a market leader in tactical illumination and the Taker B30 is an ideal complement to any Hardcore Defense shield.  The Taker B30 is bright, lightweight, and can be securely and removably mounted to any shield in moments as the tactical situation requires.

    Purchaser is responsible for complying with all local, state, and federal laws regarding purchase and use of ballistic protection products.  Hardcore Defense assumes no liability for illegal use or misuse of the product.  It is usually legal for civilians to purchase and own body armor and ballistic shields within the United States.  Residents of Connecticut and individuals convicted of a felony are prohibited from possessing bulletproof vests and other body armor; whether a ballistic shield counts as "body armor" is open to debate and interpretation may vary by jurisdiction.


    Due to recent legislation, all types of gunfire-protective armor can no longer be shipped within NY. Sales are only allowed in person to eligible professions (Ex: Police Officers, Security Guards, Firefighters, etc.). Please contact us at if you have any questions.
