    My wife purchased one of the front plates for me after someone took a few shots at me with a rifle and I made the mistake of telling her that my soft armor wouldn't have stopped the rounds. One plate alone is over seven pounds and you will need to buy a special carrier, but it's well worth the purchase if it means going home at the end of your shift.
