I know to use the term lightly, as you cant put a price on your life.... But as a civilian, and probably never ever having to rely on a vest, what are some options? I just thought it might be a wise thing to have in a B.O.B.

Or maybe not. How about your input?

I am thinking concealable. Just bascially for what you said: bumps in the night, if the SHTF, and for just having at the range for a little more of a feeling of protection, when I am around people who I dont necessarily "trust"

Are paltes and armor available to civilians? I though most companies sell only to LE and military...or is this another one of those myths.

Most of the finer vests are sold at the local Police Supply, and yes here in Texas, (houston in particular) they sell to civies.

Anyone can legally buy armor as long as you have legal intentions for it. Many (most) companies seem to have a policy to only sell to Mil/LEO in order to legally cover their butts.

Check in the EE. There's almost always some for sale in there.

Just be careful about buying used vests. They deteriorate over time and have an "expiration date".
