Before purchasing any body armor, it is essential that you take the time to find out what laws apply to body armor in your specific locality. This will help you to be sure that you are not breaking any laws and that you will be able to use your body armor how you see fit. If you are caught purchasing or utilizing body armor in a locality where it is prohibited, you may have to suffer many significant consequences for your actions.
Before buying any body armor, it is a good idea to call your local law enforcement agency. They will be able to tell you about any restrictions in your area and any steps that you may need to take before making the purchase. You need to take ultimate responsibility for your purchase and be sure that you are following all laws and regulations for your jurisdiction.

If you knowingly buy body armor as a convicted felon, you could end up in jail for your actions.
No body armor is 100% bulletproof. Level III Plates are not designed to stop steel core armor piercing rounds (Level IV armor should stop most steel core armor piercing rounds). If you are shot with body armor on, it will hurt quite a lot. There might be plenty of bruising – no matter what. Also, you could suffer broken or fractured bones or even die due to an injury. Therefore, you should never purposefully be shot while wearing body armor because you will become injured to some degree – sometimes fatally. The armor may stop the bullet from hitting your body, but it won’t stop all of the inertia from the bullet transferring to your body and causing some damage.
