I wish I was LEO but my wife doesnt approve and I am to fat and lazy. I have great respect for them though.

I am. My department is in the process of issuing each of us ceramic rifle plates with carrier. We currently have steel plated vests assigned to a patrol car

We've probably got around a dozen or more if we took a head count, I'll leave 7-mag out since you said Active!

I wish there was a way we could make sure they ALL have "rifle proof" plates. I know they are heavy and got to be hot as hell. I saw something on the news a day or two ago. it was a way to donate to help buy these plates. I think they are like $1K a set.

We just recently got outer carriers with rifle plates. Our Citizen's Police Academy Alumni group and a couple of local churches stepped up with a lot of money to help us out. It sure is nice knowing I have it if it's ever needed.

How much is a set realistically? Maybe the THF could try and raise some money for this?

I've seen guys shot square in the chest with 7.62x39 and have no more than bruising seen a guy shot in the side plate and same thing but I think he may have broke a rib. No doubt they work and save lives. They suck to wear for long periods of time though.

I keep mine in the front seat of my car with my long guns and throw it on before going to a call that I may need it. Yes, anything can happen at anytime but sometimes you have a better idea what you're going to.

My setup cost like 450 bucks. Level 4 plates in a firstspear first on carrier. Specifically made minimally in order to go on over the ballistic vest we already wear. Holds two rifle mags and has a pouch that I keep first aid in.
Not practical for swat or plain clothes officers due to lack of storage but it's made assuming you already have most your gear on your duty belt. I like it for patrol.
