So I was online looking at some Level 2 body armor today and I had a thought.... I recently bought a few guns and ammo for prepping purposes and wondered if there is some sort of flag that would be raised by buying a ton of prepper gear in a short period of time. It would seem to me that there could be an appearance of someone lacing up to do some bad stuff. What do you guys think?
I think you are spot on. In todays world I would not put it past the UPS brown truck driver dropping a dime on you. You don't have to do anything wrong to get into hot water.
Another thing with prepping is you can not let it ruin what life you do have. Prepping for a world that just keeps limping along is just as important as prepping for a total SHTF day. To much to fast can create a personal SHTF. Good luck with your plans sounds like you are using your head.

Karl Marx said, "Destroy their culture, rewrite their history. Ruin their art and literature, and defame their heroes, by offering fabrications to scandalize that which they considered good.
After reading this Obama said I am on it.
Many years ago when I bought my first 1000 round order of ammo, I realized I was probably on a list somewhere with the feds. All we can hope for is that we law abiding free citizens are too many for "them" to hassle.
If you are worried about body armour, you may want to re-think your defense. I want no one that close to me that I need that, we hope that we are not in combat for pete's sake. Just trying to move on. May be you see something that needs to be addressed.If you are a city dweller, then, I see your need.
Not to hi-jack the thread, but UPS guy showed up in a U-Haul to give me my package. Be the grey man. Slow but sure wins the race. No real need to be too aggressive.
Bide your time. jmho!
