Prior to a large event, we receive a hard-drive-punishing flow of emailed product press releases. My interest was piqued by a bullet resistant vest company that promised what I thought was a typographical error for their MSRP. I would definitely be paying a visit to the BulletSafe booth at SHOT Show 2014.
At the Show, I met Tom Nardone, BulletSafe’s company president, in their small space at an off-the-main-floor Law Enforcement Vendors ballroom. Not shy, I had to ask right out of the gate, “Why are your ballistic vests so inexpensive?” At a suggested retail price of just $299.00, BulletSafe’s Level IIIA protection brought out the skeptic in me.
