Re: RFI on a White in Color Concealable Plate Carrier and Lightweight Level III+ Plates.

I wish the SKD LVBC came in white... Regarding plates: http://www.tyrtactical.com/pro...r-level-3-i-c-plate/ They're a touch over 4lbs, but they also stop things the SPPs won't while still being thin. ETA: I have 10x13s. They're 5.25lbs WITH backers. Forgot to get a weight WITHOUT backers. Oops. 0.70" at the thickest, 0.60" once you're far enough into the middle that the cover stops overlapping.

I'm looking to get a custom carrier to put into my outer vest carrier for work and will be hitting up Beez as well. Our department issues Second Chance vests that have two front pockets (standard 5"x8" and 7"x9"). I have the (Safariland) Protech IMPACT RT + 7"x9", but when inside the vest since I have one it's front heavy as hell. Ideally I'd like to use my armor hangar since my locker is kind of small but using steel conflicts with that. Talking with a few guys who went the Dyneema route...

RFI on a White in Color Concealable Plate Carrier and Lightweight Level III+ Plates.

MOLON_LABE ·
I currently work as a Contracted Armed Security Professional for the U.S. Govt. I am issued a concealable Level IIIA vest that is white in color. The carrier has to be white in order to be worn on duty. Due to the cultural climate and general attitude towards uniformed persons carrying a gun and wearing a badge I have decided I would like to up armor myself with Level III +/Special Threat plates. My issued armor carrier cannot accommodate hard plates of any decent size, (it has the heart...

Beez can handle the carrier. You'll probably want a polyethylene/Dyneema plate set.

Another vote for the Tyr HA 3/7 Plates. I have the 10x12 size. $340 each plate is the good guy price. IIRC, mine are 3.7 lbs and with the cordura cover, about 0.7" thick. Could you have a tailor modify your existing armor carrier to fit plates?

I could, but then I would get charged for the cost of the vest at turn in time. How did you swing the $340 price point? Everything Im seeing is closer to $400 apeice before taxes and shipping.

They're easy to swallow at $500/ea - $340 is a steal. Considering what the HA3/7s have to offer, and they're worn with a backer anyway in your case, fuck the SPPs. Speed Plate Plus (10x12, 5.1lbs) rifle ratings: 5.56 M193 5.56 M855 7.62x39 MSC http://www.pointblankenterpris...16-product-sheet.pdf TYR HA3/7 (10x12, 3.62lbs) rifle ratings: 5.56 M193 5.56 M855 (and SS109) 5.45x39mm (I believe MSC) 7.62x51 M80 7.62x39 MSC http://www.tyrtactical.com/pro...r-level-3-i-c-plate/

Aren't you wearing 3A anyway? While not official, that should serve as a functionally acceptable backer for the Tyr plates. If you can do BALCS, I'd offer (or threaten) to do some things you wouldn't want anyone else to find out about to obtain one of SKD's LVBCs in white. I had a suit on so lots of layers and noise in front, but I think I could have had at least a front plate without anyone noticing. I try not to talk out of my ass too much, but they're stupidly comfortable and actually...

I would prefer not to have to run backers in the interest of keeping things low profile. Beez can't do a solid white carrier. Going to wait until Tuesday to call Mayflower/Velocity Systems, SKD, First Spear, Chase Tactical, Blue Force Gear, Extreme Gear Labs, Grey Ghost Precision, and Tactical Tailor. If none of these guys pan out I will looking into obtaining a spare soft armor carrier and having a plate bag sewn into/onto it.

Mayflower was going to be my first suggestion, (in theory) they could do a custom LPAC for your IIIA panels with the requisite plate pouches. As long as they can do white... I know the Velocity ULV plates and backers had slick white carriers back in the day and they can still be found, but they are still zesty. Maybe Deliberate Dynamics, Ferro Concepts or Perroz Designs for custom work?

Mayflower LPAC and Point Blank concealment cut plates

SoTex ·
Need an external carrier that takes issued concealment cut armor (Point blank alpha elite)and can add plates. Swift clips is a plus over molle everything. Mayflower LPAC seems perfect, can't tell if I can get my issued armor in it or not, appears some do and some don't. Anyone have experience with this actual combo or maybe want to recommend another combo? Have a call into Mayflower to find out buy no joy yet.

I recall Mayflower doing custom LPAAC in the past. Beeze Combat Systems does similiar custom work and has been positively reviewed here in the past.

I think he is at some type of range, just guessing of course. On his tee shirt right shoulder is a patch of some kind. He's probably right handed, his forearm is bigger on the right side. I was a bus driver and wore my watch on my left wrist so I could keep my right hand on the steering wheel at all times, yet be able to glance at my watch. So there may be an unknown reason for this. There must be some logical or logical reason to him for that rig. I cannot think of one though. Looking at...

Comments from some assclown by the name of "3boxesofbs" from the website: Okay 0– It’s nylon — so what? Is it holding the firearm securely? It’s hard to see? So is a IWB under a shirt, an OWB rig at a person’s side — any particular reason to believe that a carrier has to keep an eye on his firearm at all times? Easy to steal? — really ?

Not an expert by any means but at first glance the pistol lines/shape indicated an H&K P7. If yes - then the guy is even more stupid because he has a $1200-$1500 pistol in a $7 holster. He could f at least spent $100 and got a good one.

That is, unfortunately. an HK P7. When God and JMB made the 1911, they sat down and had an after work dram of Lagavulin. JMB said he had some other ideas but never got around to it. Then, years later, some Germans ended up having the same discussion, although over some boots of Spaten Octoberfest. God and HK then gave birth to the P7, the greatest 9mm ever. See, bet you guys didn't know the backstory. As to the holster, I can't believe all you guys missed the obvious. He's a LEFTY. Uh.....DUH.

Presumably there is a channel on the other side to move the clip when carrying on the other side. He threaded his belt through the channel. Reminds me of an armored car guard I would periodically see at the Federal Reserve Bank (near where I picked up the commuter van). He had some form of revolver in one of those Uncle Mikes hunting holsters. He would undo the "retention" strap while walking to the building. The strap was so frayed it looked like a small rodent was hanging from his holster.

It will never, ever cease to amaze me that guys will spend many hundreds or over a thousand dollars on a pistol, buy multiple magazines at $40+, spend the necessary amount of money for high quality, factory produced hollow point ammo………….and then top that ensemble off with either a $15 total piece of shit holster or my personal favorite - the $4.99 Made in Taiwan belt from WalMart. Or both.

Things like this sometimes make me wonder if we are truly better off with the broad sense of the 2A.... I get it, I support it, but how can we make it so that not every idiot can buy/carry guns? I understand that if you start placing limits on some it opens the door for limits on the rest and it's a slippery slope, but DAMN! Too many idiots with guns and cars and we have to let them so that people don't put restrictions on US. So damn annoying
