NBOW Range Day – PPE


PPE demonstrated their DX3A package. It more than held up to the task it was designed for stopping 9mm, .40, .45 as well as 12 ga shot and slug. It was refreshing to see them chrono the ammo and weapon combo before each set of shots.


After the initial volley, Mike Runella added their Speed Plate to the vest. It is a lightweight PE based plate designed specifically for special threats like 5.7mm.


In a veritable torture test, several attendees were asked to unload a magazine into the vest one after another. Even after all of this, no penetrations.

    Good to know that a product works without a life being on the line.
