“Level Up To True Stand Alone Level IV Protection When Facing Any Active Shooter Incident,” Gideon Tactical’s press release advises, displaying an unnatural fondness for Germanic capitalization. [Full text after the jump.] You can’t argue with the logic. If you know you’re going to face an active shooter, it’s just as well to be able to withstand a .30-06 M2 AP (.30 Caliber Military Armor Piercing) round heading your way at 2,880 FPS. The thing is, if you’re a cop, you’re already wearing a bullet resistant vest. Who has time to change vests? No problem! “Continuing the tradition of Equipping Heroes . . .
we have assembled a Level IV protection kit featuring two Stand Alone Armor Express Plates and a Shellback Tactical Banshee Rifle Plate Carrier.
