Who can buy a Bulletproof Vest?
All US residents have the right to buy and own a Bulletproof Vest assuming that they do not possess a criminal record that would prevent them from doing so (read below).
There is no background check, waiting period, or federal registration required. You can order a vest and have it delivered to your home or office just as you would any other merchandise. You do not need to register it with any authorities, and we do not share your information with anyone.
Note: We cannot ship vest to individuals in Connecticut, where vests must be purchased face-to-face. Connecticut customers should use our Find A Dealer page to locate their nearest BulletSafe Dealer.
