    Seriously interested in that B&T APC. Might have to spend some time with the 9mm one nearby.

      Is a consequence (one of them) of the failed rescue attemp in Somalia by DGSE’s “Choc”, 5.7mm and 4.6mm are calibers for self-protection against a non-existant body-armor, with a very limited range, very bad terminal ballistic effects (look for Dr. Gary K. Roberts comments about this)… is more reasonable, and a lot cheaper, to carry small assault rifles with 5.56/300BLK/300Whisper/6.8

    Anyone know who makes the tan vest to the left of the smock in the pic of the first spear kit?

    • Lev says:

      Perhaps it is something new from Renegade (US) or NFM (Norwegian) armor? Both are top notch.

        It’s from First Spear, my guess is a Ragnar vest with a Beat Up plate pouch attached to it.
