The plate carrier market can be confusing and expensive for first time buyers or people who are just starting off their knowledge base. The Plate Carrier Setup Course at Top Gun Shooting Sports is designed to take you through all of the options in multiple categories to help you make the right choices for you the first time you make a purchase or give you new insight into making your next purchase. If you already have a plate carrier or plates you would like advice on, we encourage you to bring all equipment you may already have with you to this course. This will also allow for you to get some specific instruction on setting up your equipment further that you already own. Even if you’ve owned plate carriers or body armor in the past, the technology and what’s offered in this market changes quickly. You may have a chance to learn about new equipment and setups you may not have known in the past.
