Spartan Armor Systems Group Buy
« on: August 04, 2017, 11:13:10 AM »

I think I put this in the right place, if not please move.
I have the opportunity to run a group buy for Spartan Armor Systems. I hope people are interested. Here are the details.
Close of the buy will be September 1st.
Reply to the thread with your order and email address. Please include sku number, description, color choice and quantity. There is an $800 minimum order for the entire buy so we should be able to meet that.
Payments have to be made prior to close of the buy; cash, Paypal (gift or +3%), or CC (+3%)
Current turnaround time from Spartan Armor Systems is 7 business days and I will then need a few to sort through the shipment
Must have a valid CT Pistol Permit
To comply with CT law pickup must be made in person. You also can only pick up your own order. Pick up can be arranged with myself or Brian at 860 Firearms. I need to know before the close of the buy who you will pick your order up from. I live in Bethel and work in Darien and can travel a bit to meet up if needed.

Here is the price breakdown

I must say that I am surprised that there hasn't been much interest in this. Maybe it is because of confusion on the group buy or maybe the market just isn't there. The minimum for the buy has already been met and we are pushing the close of the buy to October 1st.

There is no minimum purchase requirement.

I think listing prices would have helped with the response.

I am interested, but why is a pistol permit necessary.  I am not sure, but I dont think the law requires it. Just an in person transaction. Please correct me if i am wrong     

Please see the below summary of the law by Veronica Rose at  You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

You asked for a summary of Connecticut laws on body armor.

SUMMARY:

By law, it is a class A misdemeanor for anyone convicted of specific felonies or a serious juvenile offense to possess body armor. And, with some exceptions for law enforcement personnel and armed forces members, it is a class B misdemeanor to sell body armor without personally meeting the purchaser. The law defines “body armor” as material designed to be worn on the body and to provide bullet penetration resistance.

The original law was passed in 1998 (Public Act 98-127, June Special Session). Public Acts 05-3 and 06-119 broadened the exceptions in the law.

CRIMINAL POSSESSION OF BODY ARMOR

By law, it is a class A misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year imprisonment, a fine of up to $2,000, or both, for anyone convicted of the following offenses to possess body armor.

1. a capital felony (death penalty case);

2. a class A felony other than employing a minor in an obscene performance;

3. a class B felony other than 1st degree promoting prostitution, 1st degree larceny, or promoting a minor in an obscene performance;

4. a class C felony other than 2nd degree promoting prostitution, bribery of a juror, or bribe receiving by a juror;

5. class D felonies of 2nd degree assault with or without a firearm, 2nd degree assault, with or without a firearm, of a victim over age 60, 3rd degree sexual assault with or without a firearm, 1st degree unlawful restraint, 3rd degree burglary with or without a firearm, reckless burning, 3rd degree robbery, or criminal use of a firearm or electronic defense weapon; or

6. a serious juvenile offense (CGS § 53a-217d).

Over 50 crimes are listed as serious juvenile offenses. They include all class A, most class B, and many class C felonies. They also include drug crimes, bomb manufacturing, and several loan-shark-type offenses. Juveniles convicted of serious juvenile offenses face more severe consequences than other juveniles.

Illegal Sale of Body Armor

It is a class B misdemeanor, punishable by imprisonment for up to six months, a fine of up to $1,000, or both, to sell or deliver body armor unless the transferee meets in person with the transferor to accomplish the sale or delivery. The law exempts sales or deliveries to:

1. authorized officials or sworn members of local police departments, the State Police, the Division of Criminal Justice, the Department of Correction, or the Board or Pardons or Parole;

2. authorized municipal or Department of Administrative Services' officials who buy body armor for the above agencies;

3. authorized Judicial Branch officials who buy body armor for probation officers; and

4. members of the National Guard or armed forces (CGS § 53-341b).

So in asking that the buyer has a pistol permit ensures that the buyer has no felonies.

I had thought about doing it that way but there are upgrades available on a good portion of the products and did not want to have the post me miles long with every option listed out.

I've participated in various group buys before and thank you for doing the leg work on this. I know the volunteer work involved in running and organizing it. For me, $10-30 off retail just wasn't worth it for me to delay other purchases for it. Nonetheless, thank you for doing it for those interested.

I am still interested but am unsure about how to contact and go about this. Should I call 860 firearms?

^^^This.

I appreciate the effort you put in but there is virtually no discount. I have other things I need before body armor. Maybe next time.
