2) Is a bulletproof vest Class NIJ-2 good?
A bulletproof vest Class NIJ-2 provides protection against pistols and revolvers with a short barrel caliber 9x19 mm - .357 Mag. where the trauma inprint no deeper than 44 mm may be. Our bulletproof packages are officially approved by a recognized institution, meet these requirements and are of very good quality. Where the situation diagnosis show that the attacker will use a pistol or revolver with a short barrel, then a NIJ-2 jacket is an excellent choice! From a situation diagnosis can be assumed that for example the case of a security guard for a dancing one can say that an attacker usually has a short weapon in his pocket and it is very unlikely that he a weapon with a long barrel or a submachine gun in his pocket will have! For short arms is an NIJ-2 jacket sufficiently safe!
3) what will happen if one shoot with a weapon with long barrel on an NIJ-2 jacket?
If one with a weapon with a longer barrel in the calibers 9x19mm-.357 Magnum shoot on a NIJ-2 vest then the trauma print will fall outside the guarantees and be deeper than the allowed 44 mm. When the hit on the chest happens then it is a relatively high probability that there will be ribs be broken. In bullet-resistant vests with a low quality it can be that the bullet goes through the vest. Our vests are of good quality!
