    The cop shop down town does (don't know if they let public in anymore)

    Does anyone know the laws when it comes to an individual selling their own body armor? I assume the same rules apply...no felons and so on? Here is the real question. what about when it involves Rifle plate or SAPI plate? from what i can tell they are legal but must be sold as separate items? so you buy the vest with the soft armor and the SAPI plates are sold separately?

    Any real legal knowledge would be very appreciated?

    Texas law only covers possession of body armor by felons. There is nothing regarding the sale of body armor.

    Being the owner of many sets of body armor and varying levels of rifle plates (3 and 4)....Selling body armor is legal. It is your responsibility to get a signed waiver from your purchaser though that he is allowed to own it to cover your butt should he go out and rob a bank later. So if he's a felon, you cannot sell to him. Burden of responsibility will fall upon you as the seller to make sure you tried to follow the rule.

    Rifle plates and Sapi plates are legal to buy and sell, however, be aware that any level 3 or level 4 armor cannot be sold overseas. You must first get written approval from the Dept of State (yeah right) and make sure all ITAR (international traffic in arms regulation) is met.

    I find that guns/offense is but 50% of the equation for protection and that no one covers their rear on the 50% necessary for defense/body armor. Humans are basically big water balloons waiting to get poked by fast moving sharp objects :-).
