Initial Reactions

Before I get to the product, I have to tell the story of talking with Van over at MechArmor Defense. I sent an email on wednesday and I was promptly called back by him but I was unavailable when he called so I didn’t speak to him right away. We played some phone tag throughout the day and I actually called him back after the show on Wednesday night. He answered and we had a great chat about the product, the company, his dogs, and killed a few beers over the phone. What a very cool guy! After we hung up, I sent over our info to get a handle to look test and evaluate. He sent their whole line up! What a shock I was in when I opened the package.
