Back in the 1990s, no one could be seen on a cell phone. The technology was in its infancy; cell phones were too cumbersome to carry around. People carried themselves differently, their heads up, alert. Their priorities were much different. Today, everyone has a new cell phone, their heads buried in screens wherever they go.
Not many people are paying attention to their surroundings and not many are prepared for disasters, active shooters, and fight or flight situations that can blindside anyone, leaving you vulnerable in the moment.
As the herd reaches for the latest iPhone, you could be snatching up a much more valuable tool that can save your life in a crisis situation. BulletSafe is offering an amazing bulletproof vest for under $300 right now, making ballistics protection more affordable than a new smartphone.
The brand new level IIIA BulletSafe Vest is just $299. Anyone who can afford an iPhone can now afford a bulletproof vest. Trusted by national security companies and proven to save lives, the BulletSafe vest provides the best value in body armor, protecting you from virtually any handgun round.
Level IIIA is the best protection soft armor has to offer, saving your life from stray .22 bullets to blows from any handgun, all the way up to a .44 magnum round traveling at 1430 ft/s. Made of high strength polyethylene, the woven nylon large vest size weighs 5.7 pounds. Its protective panel covers 430 square inches over an 18” x 15.75” surface. The vest is lightweight and better yet, concealable under your clothes.
The vest is offered in small, medium, large, extra large, 2XL and 4XL. BulletSafe provides a height-weight chart to help you determine which size of vest suits your needs. No vest will protect you from every bullet; however, the BulletSafe contains pockets that allow you to add extra protection. The vests contain front and rear pockets that can be equipped with ballistic plates to handle more serious rifle rounds. BulletSafe offers ballistic plates, sized to fit in the 10” wide by 12” tall pockets.
These vests are a perfect fit for security personnel, police officers, hunters, preppers, avid shooters, investigators, repo men, and anyone in a risky position, such as gas station attendants and other customer service workers who interact directly with the public and with cash registers. The vests are important to wear if you frequent dangerous cities like St. Louis and Chicago, which have some of the highest rates of gun violence and corruption. Body armor could come in handy if you work around people who are on psychiatric medication. People hooked on or withdrawing from psychiatric prescription drugs are more apt to become violent, impatient, suicidal and hostile. Las Vegas shooter, S. Paddock was on “sedative hypnotic” mind-altering psychiatric medication, joining a long list of mass shooters who are on psych drugs.
The vests are great to wear if you have to travel into any advertised “gun-free zones” because “gun free zones” are where shooters take advantage of unarmed people first. A bulletproof vest could give you just the right amount of invincibility to distract or take down an active shooter, saving many lives in the process. There are no laws that restrict you from purchasing body armor, unless you are a convicted felon.
If you are ever confronted by an active shooter or mugged blind because you weren’t paying attention, you’ll wish you had spent your money on something that offers a little more protection than that expensive, new iPhone that just shattered on the pavement.
