As a proper prepper/anti-establishment/'paranoid'/'domestic terrorist(lol)', I ordered some body armor back when this virus was still a conspiracy theory. Lead time was 6 weeks. I called them today to enquire the status of my order, and it is another 6 weeks out, due to 'massive increase in recent orders.' The guy went on to say they're still filling orders from mid December. It would make sense that a lot of folks like me would have finally dropped the sizeable investment for professional ballistic armor when the news of this virus hit the 'rw conspiracy alt media', thus creating a massive delay in order fulfillment. But there was no coronavirus on anyones radar in mid-December. Or was there? The company I'm (hopefully?) getting my armor from primarily supplies military, LE and govt contractors. Which begs the question: did the govt and affiliated agencies order a bunch more ballistic armor just prior to this outbreak? The implications should be obvious.
