    They are local to me, sorta. Milwaukee. Are these prices really good? I think I'll do a uniform spreadsheet.

    I also want to know if those weapon prices are for LE agencies, or for any agency. Hell, I'll buy a new Glock for four something.
    If you have a dealers permit you can buy anything from the gun dept, or not unless your company has an armory that can purchase for you.

      You just need a ATF Firearms Dealer's permit, or someone with a Firearm Dealer's permit to effect the transfer and final sale? That's what I thought. Thanks.

      From what I understand, getting a ATF dealer's permit is getting harder. You usually have to have a storefront, and have a real dealer operation. There are those who are grandfathered in, though.

      I wanted to call it a Class III, but I forgot what class the dealer's permit is. My father used to own a reloading business, and that's where I learned about the ATF.

          From their catalog:
          www.streichers.com

          I tried to look something up last night, their search feature is totally screwed up. Keeps returning body armor, no matter what you search for. I was not impressed.

          Their item numbers drive me insane, though. Here's an example of a good one:
          SA-XD45G.FS - Springfield XD ($435 Officer, $395 Dept)
          VSP-DYN.A - CPI Com-Pak Speaker in Aluminum

          WTF is VSP? Make sense, people.

              I am currently a security officer at a grade K-12 upscale preparatory school. The parking lot is slap full of BMW's, Mercedes, Lexus, etc. These kids have money! It is just across the line from the not so good part of town, so for the thug car thiefs it is like a candy store. I am authorized to carry a firearm and OC spray. And since the police response time in Jackson, MS is about as fast as sending a U.S. mail package from NY to Cali., we actually have a lot going on. We have a good working relationship with the JPD, but if something happens, we are for the most part on our own for 30-45 minutes.

                Got armor? Quartermaster's. 200 bucks for Level II armor. Wear it.

                  Are you serious? Only $200? Wow I really need to look into that. Plus, since our security company is paid by the school and the parents that want to keep their kids and cars safe, my boss reimburses me for anything job related(gun excluded). I had not put much thought into body armor thinking it was much more expensive!

                    If that's the case, ask him if he would be willing to pay for the difference between Level II and III-A.

                      If your being rembursed, go with something OTHER than Duty Pro. Safariland makes nice vests in their Matrix and Zero-G lines. PACA does, as well.

                        How many of you guys wear body armor? There are not a whole lot of people in the security business where I live that do wear it, which I think is ironic considering security officers are often posted at places in the late night hours that even police officers wouldn't go! Of course, if you know anything about Jackson, MS that covers a lot of area! Haha I guess another reson is that many do not get paid enough to purchase it since their companies do not provide anything of that nature.

                          I wear my Zero-G everyday, the vest provided by my company (the cheapest they could find, but still within union rules) stays in the closet. I even wore it on unarmed work.

                          Vests are like guns, you may never need one until you need it very badly.

                            I wear a Point Blank level IIIA vest. At one point in time I was wearing a Second Chance level IIA vest, but at that time I was unarmed. Since I started carrying, the vest was upgraded. Most experts recommended to me to wear a vest that can absorb a bullet of the same caliber I carry, since I would be most likely to get shot by my own weapon if at all. Considering the shootings I've seen around where I work though, I would recommend a level IIIA vest for anybody since the bad guys have their own weapons and calibers such as .357MAG and .45ACP are commonly bought and carried by private citizens and criminals alike.

                              I have an old Second Chance Level II vest from back in the days I worked as an Auxillary cop but it's WAY out of date. I never wear it and it's probably laying in the back of my closet.

                                Body Armor

                                I thought about it, but haven't acted on it yet for a number of reasons:

                                - Cost
                                - Post location
                                - Company policy
                                - State regulation. Some states have laws regarding wearing it.

                                One thing is for sure. If I ever work mall or hospital security, I WILL wear it. I do have a level IIIA clipboard that can be used as a last resort to save my life.
