    Keep in mind the item is coming from Israel. Caveat emptor.

    I'm in law enforcement and as for as I know it is illegal for anyone but law enforcement to posses a bullet proof vest.

    No, it is not illegal. As a law enforcement officer, you really have an obligation to know these things. Were you to see a citizen wearing bullet resistant clothing (provided they were NOT in the commission of a crime), you would have no LEGAL authority to cite them.

    The rules are different for felons, however.

    Study up, Sanodusa. There is also a whole passel of gun laws I would appreciate you learning, especially as regards conceal carry.

    Laws do change. At one time it was illegal for anyone other than law enforcement. And as for as conceal carry laws. I very much know the state I'm in and what other states we allow. We do our best as law enforcement officers keeping up with the laws but were not perfect nobody is.

    Saw one at the Gun Show 3 weeks ago for $400 not sure what level it was but it was about 1 1/2 inches thick.

    I'm glad you do know your laws. Some of your LEO brothers down there appear to be above the law.


    As for vests, they are certainly warm. If it's really needed though, it's way better than the alternative of being worm food.

    From the Oregon Revised Statutes:

    166.642 Felon in possession of body armor. (1) A person commits the crime of felon in possession of body armor if the person:

    (a) Has been convicted of a felony or misdemeanor involving violence under the law of any state or the United States; and

    (b) Knowingly is in possession or control of body armor.

    (2) Felon in possession of body armor is a Class C felony.

    166.643 Unlawful possession of body armor. (1) A person commits the crime of unlawful possession of body armor if the person, while committing or attempting to commit a felony or misdemeanor involving violence, knowingly:

    PM me if you want ordering info.

    Why do you have to be so condescending? Yes, technically body armor is bullet resistant and not bulletproof, but playing dumb whenever someone says bulletproof (kinda like those who play dumb about someone using the term clip for magazine) accomplishes nothing, especially when you absolutely know what they're talking about.

    Anyway, I did security for two years, and a good concealable vest can be found for less than $500 brand new. Those that run into the thousands of dollars are typically the heavier ones that aren't concealable and are worn by SWAT teams.
    Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.
