With the purchase of any body armor you understand that body armor is not bullet proof but bullet resistant. NIJ standards are published to help insure that a bullet will be stopped per a specified level of protection. This does not mean that it will prevent 100% of bullet penetration or that the impact will not cause other injuries even if the bullet is stopped. Body Armor is good for protection but there needs to be an understanding if a bullet strikes you there is always a risk for injury or potentially death and even if the impact is absorbed by the vest or plate defeating the bullet before it penetrates a person’s body. Some of these injures seen can happen ranging from severe bruising, broken bones, and possibly serious internal injury that could result in death. If struck by a bullet even with the vest on you should seek immediate medical attention to insure there are no internal injuries prevalent at the time of the impact.
