Thank you for your backorder of the Hesco L210 body armor! This email is a quick update on the status of your order.
Over the Labor Day weekend, Hesco experienced slight supply-side delays resulting in our order not being shipped on time. However, we still expect Hesco to be shipping out soon and to have all armor backorders shipped out by the end of the month.
We will keep everyone updated with another email as soon as the armor is on the way!
FWIW, sabre cancelled my order (QueenBee's too) without any fees.I just ordered a second set from Hoplite, supposedly in stock. Let the race begin.
If the Hescos make it in before the end of times I’ll post them for sale.
I’m not paying no f***ing 20% restock/cancellation fee.
Get what you can afford. If you can only get that, get that.Does anyone have experience with the 5.11 Tactec carrier?
Seems to get good reviews. I realized that Rogue Fitness sells them (I guess intended as a sort of very expensive weighted fitness vest?). The Mrs. got me a Rogue gift card for my birthday to go toward the home gym, but money is extra fungible in 2020.
If it's gtg, I can use the saved cash for better plates and some pouches.
People said that after Newtown and 2016. The used market never really materialized.
There never really is a flood on the used market. Might be slightly more to pick from, but not a wave by any means.Gee....I dont recall a huge buyathon of tactical gear after newtown......
I guess I should have phrased it differentlyThere never really is a flood on the used market. Might be slightly more to pick from, but not a wave by any means.
What are you running?
Tac gear, no....but there certainly was a run on guns and ammo, and a lot of people predicted a glut of NIB or barely used offerings on the used market shortly thereafter.I guess I should have phrased it differently
Why would the newtown event trigger people to go out and buy tactical gear?
Hence no huge market of used gear a few years later.....
Ops-Core FAST Super High Cut, AMP comms headset with U174 downlead, and rail mount kit. It'll look like this but black. I dig how it makes good use of the otherwise odd rear/vertical rail and leaves the front/horizontal rail free for a light. Also splurged for the NFMI earplugs; we'll see if they're worth the $250 extra.What are you running?
Don’t forget a stable platform for NODs.I can't bring myself to dump $2k on a helmet setup. I'd really like to, but Jesus thats a lot of money for a fancy hat just for comms when you can get a pair of electronic ears that come with a boom and accept a radio input
But you’d look cool.
We’re all here because we’re not all there. Seriously, some days even I think I’m nuts. But events of the past year have only given me more confidence investing in defensive assets.I am glad I bought all this shit before the happening happened, because the money people are paying these days is insane.
