Hello all, a couple questions.
Who: CONUS civilian looking for armor for training classes/(whatever bad day acronym you want to use).
1. Mayflower LPA/LPAAC still relevant or is there a better soft armor/plate carrier out there? -I know plate carriers are the new hotness, but I would prefer to have full coverage with soft armor, since most training classes and CONUS threats are pistol related.
2. For rural CONUS use (large deer hunting population where I live in PA), is a level 4 HESCO (4800 plate) worth the added weight and thickness compared to an AT-ARMOR STOP-BZ which is rated up to M80 ball, but also stops M855A1? especially since I am already adding extra thickness with IIIA soft armor.
3. In the next 5-10 years, do you feel M855A1 will be an increased CONUS threat? Considering a lot of level 3 plates do not stop this.
