    fellow bogs,
    A friend/kumpadre, who is a town mayor somewhere in Region ? is my guest house and asking help to purchase a body armor. An active clear and present danger is apparently existing and he has to take extra precautions. The threat is from his own vice-mayor who was the former mayor the last 12 yrs. Anyway, not enough time to wait for a UPS delivery even an overnight shipping as the delegation is going back home pretty soon.

    My question: where can he purchase body armor in Phil? Does the local gunstores carry them? At least a type IIIA armor level or better yet, a type III.

    Also, anybody who is into basic training of security personnel? From what I heard, his security guys are basically clueless. Only showoffs is what they are. Any advice is highly appreciated. Thank you.

    Di naman useless ang security nya
    He can use it as decoy para sila ang sundan at ambushin
    Pinag aaralan siya ng mga kalaban niya so watch out sa mga nag susurveillance
    Kelangan din maglabas ng pera para sa intelligence
    The usual utakan

    thanks guys. we will take a chance today on 2 stores in the bay area although my hopes are not that high they carry the item. if he cannot pick up one, he has no choice but to stop in manila to visit a dealer there.

    I got a PM from a BOG with some good tips including a training center.

    enting, sorry, looks like he employs only local guys.

    atmarcella, he wants at least a type IIIA or type III.

    salamat po ng marami.

    I have a brand new Second Chance Level IIA (standard vest worn by LAPD street cops) ready for pick up somewhere in QC. Anyone interested, PM me. However, the trauma plate is still in the US. Large size.

    just came home from the local store and was unceremoniously told, civilians cannot buy body armors in CA.

    sooo, looks like by buddy will purchase one in manila afterall. Mahal daw kasi diyan, eh.


    sir jerry,
    is your Second Chance vest made of Zylon? The company is under a lawsuit due to a failed protection by its armor. A Pennsylvania officer was shot dead after a bullet passed through his vest

  10. He can either let his bodyguards surround him and let him wear a levelII for the timebeing and get him to order for a IIIA asap from safariland or the likes. I dont think there is any immediate available IIIA in the Phils.

    I do recall, there is one that I saw in a gunshow that simply had a vest and you insert thick ballistic steel into them. Thay may work temporarily but he cannot wear it all the time otherwise, it would be like a work out day in day out...

    Suggest work on getting a quality vest and order it already. Meanwhile, the bodyguards will have to be the level III (joke only):supergrin:

    I do not know the material but the model is Monarch. The vest may be examined by you only or other BOGs no one else. LAPD had examined and tested this vest so I would say if its good for use in the streets that it is good enough for me.

    i hope i'm not giving away too much of a scoop, somebody might figure out who/where I'm talking about. but here goes: this is the region where 3 mayors have been liquidated, 2 of them months before the election and the 3rd is a mayor-elect. It includes couple of media people too. The thing in this part of the country is, its a political dynasty; husband and wife will take turns on the mayoralty and when their terms is done, the kids will take over even they are green 19 yrs old. Plus other family members are on diff elected offices all the way up to the provincial level. So u see, they want to hold on to power as long as they can.

    revo is right...and may I add, the kingdom of the power-hungry.

    allegedly, the cleansing mentioned above is all from a whispered order straight from an octogenarian.

    my bud is fresh face..completely new kid on the block.

    2 of them are municipal cops and officially on the town payroll. I have no idea whats their rate but the others, a mixed of party loyalist, some are distant relatives, they're getting 5K a month from my friend's pocket plus free chow. Total 7 SGs. (i wonder how the heck they survive with that kind of pay) Never mind if they have training on securing 'high-value-entities'. I'm also imagining if they shoot a pistol before...baka paltik or biente dos lang. One thing I know, x-army yung isa but at a ripe age of 56 na. Hingal-kalabaw na raw siya sa mga lakaran.

    The only common trait to all of them: they don't hesitate to shoot! Talagang kaya nila.

    mang danny, vega,
    salamat but too late na. one last meeting tomorrow and they're leaving at night. sa Pinas na lang siguro. Sabi mayron na raw siya pero super bigat as its like an outgear vest with pockets he looks funny specially on hot days. gusto yung parang undershirt you can wear over a barong.

    looks like the guys at my local store has the wrong info re CA's ruling on body armor. He must be thinking of the 2 guys wearing bullet proof vest with AKs spraying cops during a botched bank stickup in LA.

    For profesional training of bodyguards here in the Philippines, check this webpage -> www.sar-hq.com They are the best in their field.

    As for body armor, my experience with these is that wearing level 3A armor here in the Philippines even for an hour makes you sweat a lot in our tropical setting. I sold my Level 3A armor and waiting for my level 2A armor to arrive.

    Of what use is body armor if you don't wear it everyday because its so hot wearing these?
