A trauma plate is nothing more than a piece of metal 1/8th inch thick to slide between you and your vest to lessen the shock on your body. If you are looking for that you can get that at Lowe’s or any other hardware store.

If you are looking the actual vest you may want to try Blackwater.

actually, i picked up a molle tac vest from cheaper then dirt...thanks for the link by the way....it has the pockets so you can slide in armour of your choice. I wanted to go with higher grade stuff becauase shit if you do end up taking a round, money really isn't a object at that point.I 'm guessing that the police grade stuff is illegal for civilian use.. no?

So now that you mention it... I'll get some 1/4 inch think iron or steel cut to a perfect fit grind and wham instant body armour. A .45 round 10 yards would be a decent test.. no?

ANY advantage I can get over the shitskins in this neck of the woods I'll TAKE!!

There are different types of steel some stronger than others. Ask the person what is the strongest steel you can buy. If you canít find a steel supplier look for welders, they are plentiful and they know where to get the steel and will cut it for you.

Have you tried http://www.galls.com ? Search for trauma plates in the upper right corner they have a good selection.

Also there is http://www.blackhawk.com/ which is what I was thinking when I said (for some reason) blackwater a few days back.
