Sorry for such a dumb question, but I warned you in my first post that I probably would have some really dumb ones. Anyway, here goes. I am basically a volunteer deputy sheriff here is Michigan. Sworn in by the county sheriff, we have to supply everything including vests. They had an old hand me down that just felt small on me. I found one that was bigger on Ebay for fairly cheap, it is only a level 2 but I was able to take the kevlar out of the one from the dept. and put it in with the kevlar from the one I bought on Ebay. Is this going to work? The one they gave me was a level 2A. Thanks for an comments/jokes or general abuse.
