Body Armor Outlet began in 2004 as an online distributer for used ballistic armor. It was founded by Raymond Luciano Bellia while attending college at The University of New Haven in Connecticut. Recognizing the national economic condition, Raymond started a “buyback” program and began liquidating the outdated ballistic vests of law enforcement establishments nationwide, and fitting their officers with new, affordable, top-of-the-line body armor at a fraction of his competitors’ costs.
Over the years Raymond’s focus has been to be able to bring the top names in the body armor industry to officers across the country for a discounted price. Today, Raymond can proudly say he is accomplishing this goal daily. Body Armor Outlet now works with the premier manufacturers within the industry and sells to Law Enforcement departments, regardless of their budget size.
Body Armor Outlet offers the vest buyback program and with help direct from the manufacturers, they have the ability to outfit most departments with brand new armor at steep discounts. With the achievement of being able to offer new armor nationwide, Raymond decided that Body Armor Outlet is going to take the next step…
Body Armor Outlet has made a commitment to begin offering a wide range of police and tactical supplies to cover all aspects of the industry. Body Armor Outlet has taken on over a dozen new manufacturers that make the best products in their categories and have at least another dozen that will be added in the upcoming months; including full-line uniforms and clothing. Having worked out special deals with most of the manufacturers allows us to offer extremely discounted pricing. This assisting departments in need and to officers looking to stay on top of the ever-progressing technology curve with new and groundbreaking products and gear.
Body Armor Outlet is here to serve and protect those who serve and protect us, and it is an honor to give back to our own community. In early 2010, Body Armor Outlet established Granite State Police Supply to focus on supplying departments in the New England Area. We are now happy to say we have opened a new, “brick and mortar” retail location, supplying jobs to the local community and allowing local law enforcement to come in and put a hand on the product or get custom on-the-spot fitting for armor and uniforms.
With Granite State Police Supply now being open it has been well received over the past months and credit can be given to everyone involved with the evolution of GSPS. We have delivered nothing but the best customer service and the lowest prices. We are always willing to help any officer or department that needs assistance with product information, sizing, or training.
