Florida School Offers Parents Bulletproof Panels for Student Backpacks | National News | US News

Parents at one Miami-area school are being offered the chance to purchase bulletproof panels for their children’s backpacks to guard against a school shooting.

Florida Christian School, a K-12 nondenominational private school, distributes an order form for the $120 ballistic panel on its website. The insert, which reportedly weighs less than a book, can be slipped into a backpack as a security tool, the school’s head of security told The Miami Herald.

“It’s just a tool,” said George Gulla. “I’d rather be prepared for the worst than be stuck after saying, ‘Wow, I wish we would’ve done that.'”

Gulla reportedly has employed a number of other security measures at the school, including sound-enabled surveillance cameras and uniformed security guards. He’s also held active-shooter drills in which students are told to hold their backpacks close to their chests as a protective layer.

The less-than-a-pound soft armor plates can turn backpacks into potentially lifesaving bullet-blockers, but they’re not required, Gulla said. The plates are reportedly able to stop bullets from a handgun like a .44 Magnum or a .357 SIG, but not rifle bullets that would require heavier armor.

The panels are produced by Applied Fiber Concepts – an area body armor company founded by Alex Cejas, a parent at the school. Last year, Cejas attended one of Gulla’s active-shooter drills, which led to his company offering to make custom plates for students.

“While books and stuff in your backpack may stop a bullet, they’re not designed to,” Cejas told the Herald. “I wouldn’t bet my life on it.”

An ongoing, nationwide debate on gun control in the U.S. has continually resurfaced over the years in conjunction with mass shootings, some of which have occurred on educational campuses.

In 2012, a shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut, left 20 children and six staff members dead. Most recently, the public debate on guns has flared in the wake of mass killings at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, last weekend and at a Las Vegas outdoor music festival last month. High-powered weapons were used in each.

Such incidents have helped create a market for things like the bulletproof backpack panels and other protective items.

The hammer – the most important tool in the toolbox

There are some tools so basic, you can’t imagine being without them. But even essential tools can be refined and improved.

That’s the principle behind the new XD-E™: the best elements of the world-renowned XD® Series, condensed into a weapon so intuitive, comfortable and accurate, you can’t imagine being without it.

The XD-E™ sculpts unmatched Point And Shoot® ergonomics into a sleek frame just an inch wide, for hand and holster fit so satisfying you’ll take it everywhere. The low-effort slide practically racks itself, so handling’s a pleasure. The exposed hammer clearly shows gun mode, and the single/double action trigger shows respect for your shooting style, unlike other compacts.

Then there’s the grip: GripZone® provides active texture that matches your grasp like a handshake, improves stability, and feels incredible. Three magazine options let you personalize concealability and capacity. Impeccable feel, weight and balance launch the XD-E™ from invisible to impactful in an instant, for go-anywhere confidence unlike any you’ve felt.

New shooter or skilled gunner, wrap your mitt around the new XD-E™ and you’ll know. This is more than a hammer. It redefines what your hammer should be.

MTR Custom Leather IWB Holsters

The A-3 and A-3A Adversary’s are great holsters. They are very small and compact holsters. You can easily take the holsters on and off very easy with only having one clip attachment. Once these holsters are broken into, the leather will soften up a little and the hoslter will conform to the position that you wear the holsters at on the waistband.

 

The Dual Carry is great choice for target shooting and conceal carry. This holster can go IWB or OWB. This holster is very slim in width and molds nicely against the body.

 

The Slimline IWB holster is similar to the Dual Carry holster in size. The main different is that the Slimline is only IWB carry.

 

The Sentinel is again similar in size of the Dual Carry and Slimline. The sentinel can go IWB or OWB. The OWB part is attached by a plastic paddle. This is easy on and off. You can adjust the clips-leather loops for the perfect ride height or cant. The holster is hand-bone for better retention of the weapon.

 

The Thoroughbred Holster is the largest out of the four of them. You can adjust the ride height and cant of the holster. The width (thickness) of this holster is the thinnest of all. The holster is thin, so it can mold againt the body very fast for comfort. The size of the holster helps to spread out the weight of the weapon.

 

The Deluxe Thoroughbred holster is our NEWEST IWB holster. This holster can be adjusted for ride height and cant. The backing of the holster is supported with a very comfortable memory foam like material to compress against the body when wearing. All of the hardware will be covered by the padding and the suede backing. The holster is hand-bone for better retention of the weapon. The size is a little longer in length than the dual carry and slimline and thicker duer to the comfortable padding.

 

****All of the holsters cover the triggar guard and has a reinforced mouth piece for better re-holstering. There is also a sweat shield on all of the holster to help keep the weapon from touching the body and the body from touching the weapon. Each holster is custom made specfically to the weapon and attachment.

 

**All USA materials and crafted in NC
