I've been pre planning getting into more tactical style shooting and wondering about other people's setups. Although I watch/read a lot of material on the subject robin the last 6+ months I think advice from people not sponsored by a company is the right way to go. I've read Condor is good but cheap and has a lot of detractors. I've heard about Mayflower, LBT, 5.11 and Crye Precision but they all seem the same and living in Saskatchewan doesn't give me lots of places to try gear on. So looking for suggestions and reviews. Oh and side question...most of the plate carriers I see now only cover the chest leaving the stomach expose. Now I know this is still protecting the heart and lungs but as a first responder I know a gut wound is a terrible thing...so I guess I'm saying is a full upper body better then a chest rig or am I just paranoid?
