If they are not being shipped to the Middle East to be killed by our soldiers, then they are still in the US getting ready for something.

Armor?  Where did you buy armor at?  Some of those chest plates get pretty expensive don't they?

its easy to spend more on gear than a rifle. But good gear is as essential. I bought my armor plates near ft stewart. My chest rig is an eagle universal bought from skdtac.com my plate carrier is a very basic carrier with nothing on it. That way i can wear it under clothing.
