    Sorry Greahaven, this one?
    The manufacturer said the design of the carrier itself mitigates splash, as the bullets that hit steel tend to disintegrate. It has been suggested with some validity that a separate spall "carrier" for the plate itself, made of a few layers of Kevlar, would be a good idea, and I don't think that's a bad idea at all.
    I do have to say the option of receiving some spall injuries as opposed to getting shot in the chest makes me lean towards the former for now.

    an off angle shot might send more than spall towards a face or extremity.. both could be lethal... having a balistic fabric carrier would IMHO be very prudent.

    Yes, that's the one. Does the AR500 company offer such an animal?

    Otherwise, to get level III or IV protection with rifle plates (ceramic), it's in the $1400 range. :eek::eek::eek: (from another company).

    Well well it comes to flashlights I got an Eagle Tac that puts out 750 lumens; even with a Diffuser Filter I still get the blinding effect.
