    Don't laugh... I bought one of the cheap Bushnell "Equinox" units, and it's addictive.

    I don't have much with which to compare it, but at across-the-backyard distances (<100') the Bushnell works really, really well.

    Did I mention that it cost barely $100?

    it's legal for you to buy armor plates.
    A jackass in California named Mike Honda introduced a bill to ban purchasing and ownership by non law enforcement people, but to my knowledge it hasn't gone anywhere.

    I was checking into the armor plates and I had people tell me the same thing, that they only sell to LEO, but that's their policy and not the law. I found a few places that would sell to non LEO with no problems.
    I would check your local laws just to be sure of any limitations, just in case.

    I opted for the steel plates. They're
    8 1/2 pounds each, which is manageable for me. The 11x14 plates I saw were 10 1/2 pounds each, that's a significant difference. I thought it would make more sense to get plates that would last forever, and since I'm no armor expert I figured the steel would do just that. I didn't want to buy something that could wear our or expire, especially if it's something that may be banned in the future.
    Also, I'd read up on the level 3+ plates instead of the level 3. They did something with the hardening process and the 3+ plates can stop the fast m193 55 grain rounds. The tests I saw showed the m193 going through the level 3 plates.

    Level 3+ is an industry rating, not a rating given by the organization that certifies them. That being the case, I wouldn't trust level 3+ to have that heat treat from anyone but an established company.

    Good luck in choosing
