Buy American or The Best Available?
 
I personally do not understand why they cannot change the law to allow DOD contractors to produce this product for this purpose (no exeptions). Then we wouldn't have this problem.

If you're getting shot at, you want the vest that stops the most bullets, you're not looking at the label. In cases where quality is equal, then sure, buy American. But if it's not, you're rewarding poor(er) standards, and that's not the American way...

Well put. When it comes to anything, if an American product is superior for a small price difference I'll buy it, but honestly I'm looking out for myself and my family first and if that means I can save a bundle on a decent product that's not necessarily American, I'll take that every time.

I'm not gonna lie, I really don't pay too much attention to the "made in ___" labels. That's bad, I know.

Exactly. I am a firm believer in specialization as well.

One would hope that when puirchasing equipment for the troops, the only consideration would be quality.

Best available, as in what I'm looking for within a certain price range. I refuse to be guilted into buying inferior products whether it be by price or where it's from.

That might make a good thread. Everyone finish the sentence:

"One would hope..."

"One would hope that all restaurant employees would wash their hands after using the bathroom."

"One would hope that the surgeon performing one's triple bypass hasn't been up taking crank for ten days."

Etc, Etc.

One would hope that anyone, not just restaurant employees, would wash their hands after using the bathroom
