Like Colion, I’m a strong believer in having body soft and hard body armor available so that your Worst Day Ever might not become your Last Day Ever. It’s great that you get your shot downrange and on target quickly, but who is to say that the bad guy isn’t going to be just as skilled as you are, has the drop on you, or simply got off a lucky shot right to the center of your chest?

Like flood insurance or fire extinguishers, body armor is something that you hope you’ll never have to use, but if you need it, there is no substitute.

We’re fans of AR500 Armor and the more covert Malibu Camo armor panel that you can all but hide in plain site.

Think seriously about adding armor to your home defense plans.
