      Tell us what is the correct verbiage.

      • Bullet resistant or ballistic vest.

        It actually is one of the correct verbiage, and it is also the brand name in one case.  It is the name of a Texas company that makes these things  (  Other correct verbiage is ballistic vest or bullet resistant vest.

      I agree with you for once. body armor is what they use… there are some large caliber bullets that don’t know they should stop because of the labels on the collars

        Interesting.  Bob, the “Rev” Carlson?

          No. His wife’s name wasn’t Gail.  The name “Carlson” is nearly as popular as the name “Bob.”  Stop trying to make a story out of something it’s not.
