When I visited Nelson Tactical up in Green Bay, one of the requirements was to wear body armor. I didn’t have my own, so they loaned me a vest with trauma plates for the duration of the training event. A little disclaimer for this pic: the photo was taken before making some additional adjustments to make sure the rig sat a little higher on my torso. The training experience with Nelson was the first time I had ever worn any kind of body armor. Do you think it’s good practice, or excessive to include body armor in your firearms training gear?
