Just got mine today.

I saw a test done by a real engineer who backed up the plates with the right type of ballistic clay, did chrono on every shot, etc. I am totally confident in these.

Good for you Steve. Like a lot of us FA enthusiasts, we cant afford thousands for BA and Gawd forbid we ever have to use it whether $$$$ or $$.
Seeing that they were sold out this afternoon I went with the https://botach.com/battle-steel-nij-cer ... ic-plates/
10 year warranty and light

But not about the quality of these plates. They're known to stop bullets quite well.

I'm referring to the company not a product. Years and years of shitty business practices.

Yes. Somehow folks do get orders from them though. ..I've ordered from them exactly 3 times in the past 2 years, always got what I wanted, and when. May be more of a gamble than some sellers, but they do come through for some folks.
