American Civil War Bullet Proof Vests There’s no question that the body armor in the days of the American Civil War was drastically different from that of today’s military and armed forces. With the advancements in synthetic fiber technologies, more durable and protective body armor has been produced. The vests that were worn by the Union and Confederate troops are considered antiques in today’s world. Nowadays you’ll find them in museums or kept by private owners as collectables. It’s also common for full Civil War gear to be worn by actors in Civil War Re-enactments.

Bullet Proof Vests of the Future: Most of the present day’s bullet proof materials work on the dissipation of the impact of the bullet force. But still the wearer is left with chances of being severely injured or damage to the internal organs. Recently at University of Sydney, researchers demonstrated the use of nanotechnology to develop advanced bullet proof vests, which will let the bullets bounce away once it gets hit
SafeGuard Armor, who has been in business for 25 years, sent me one of their Ultra high-end body armor Bullet Proof Vests. It comes with various options for Ballistic, Stab and Spike levels, and is made from 100% DuPont Kevlar®! Now I’m not brave enough to put the thing on and let my kid shoot at me from fifty feet, or stab me with a bayonet, but I did test it out for wear and comfort. After all, that’s the biggest complaint I hear from many of my military friends. Full body armor is too heavy and too uncomfortable.
I recently came in contact with Molecule Asia, a firm dealing in Men's & Women's Cargo Pants and Shorts. They carry Shorts, Pants, Skirts, Shirts and Accessories. There are a host of sub-categorizes under each main tab, so feel free to explore the site! The reason this site intrigued me is two-fold. For one, we wore similar Cargo style pants in the Air Force. Secondly, all my son wears during the summer months is Cargo Shorts.
Just before Christmas, a representative from DRIFIRE Fire Retardant Wear, asked me if I would be interested in reviewing their products. Not that I use fire retardant wear or have worn such products, but I am always happy to review anything dealing with the military.
Yesterday, I received a package I had been expecting from PX SUPPLY. Although I knew what was inside, I was excited to see the products. They were actually hats, three different styles that I as an old Air Force guy wanted, to show my support an pride for the younger generation, now serving. More on the hats in a bit.
My friends over at BULKAMMO.COM, were kind enough to send me a box of their new Federal .40 cal. handgun ammo, for my sons new .40 cal. Springfield Armory XD-40 pistol, which we shot this weekend.
