It is not armor plate, no sir! But a supporting shirt of the most luxurious layered fabrics and stiffeners to provide a fit and finish akin to those glorious legions of state!

If true, there’s an awful lot that can and should be read into that.



An. Awful. Lot.

Really? Given what happened at their office just 2 weeks prior, I'm not surprised.

Legal or otherwise, there's a lot of guns out there, right? It just makes sense for high profile folk to have it. I've thought about investing in it for some of the neighborhoods I regularly work in. Don't know if I could ever afford a $9k suit for work but if the costs come down because it's a normalized consumer item that would be fantastic for everyone.

Edited to include this link to a story about fancy armor clothing I was reading but forgot: https://abcnews.go.com/Business/bull...ry?id=56532717

Did a member of Congress get shot? Must have missed that in the news.

I hope that product was carriers, not the actual steel armor. Chinese steel armor doesn't sound real protective.

They are banning anything that could potentially be used to challenge their stranglehold on power.

I think their carriers and plates are US made but they source other parts from China. My guess is all their molle attachments are from China. I was a little misleading in my post for fun sake.
