I think a lot of members are confused on this thread.

AR500 ARMOR (this subforum)
and
AR500-TARGETS

ARE TWO DIFFERENT COMPANIES

AR500 Armor is based in AZ
http://www.ar500armor.com/ (go to the bottom of the page for their address)

AR500-Targets is local to SoCal
http://www.ar500-targets.com/aboutus.asp

Seems like the OP was posting about AR500 Armor.
I dealt with AR500-Targets before. They are very responsive.
I have not dealt with AR500 Armor though.

AR500 (Abrasion Resistant) describes the hardness of steel.
It is a rating system for how strong a target is. They also have AR400 and AR500+ for targets.

We ship same day and will never run you around. We also offer a much better target solution.

It took a while to get an order from these people and I was in the same seat but am super impressed with how everything turned out.
It gave me a sense that the "NOW NOW NOW NOW" generation got the best of me and quickly re-thought my stance on the company.
Their gear is second to none and I thank them moving forward for dependable gear.
Look at the Middle Ages, up to NOW and how long it took to produce reliable body armor, be it chains or crappy flak jackets, I'd put my dime on AR.
Just saying

By the way, my former liberal wife has the courier pack in her car and that seriously puts me at ease, especially after Obama invited his buddies over here.

Most, if not all of the members with high post counts are just bags of hot air. Mindless talking heads who are overly impressed with themselves.

And don't get me started on that phony baloney iTrader nonsense either. It's all a bunch of hooey!

I was going to avoid AR500 due to this thread but they had a great Black Friday sale and I was prepared for a long long wait according to comments. Well I was pleasantly surprised, I got the order in 3 weeks and the product is great and even better price. So I guess this is a positive review for anyone considering them:

I placed an order from Ar500 back in November 2016 (might have been Oct) after hearing/reading many mixed reviews. I ordered a plate carrier and plates with an expected lead time of 5 weeks. The box was on my doorstep about a week later. Maybe I just got lucky?

I don't mind waiting at all I just don't like being strung along or not given any eta. their response was that it should be shipped soon but they don't really know when. so I'll just sit on my hands and wait. disappointing but I knew what I was signing up for. I'm gonna get a set of Spartan next time they go on sale just to compare and have any extra set.

everything is supposed to be here Tuesday. I think that's about 9 weeks. I asked them to throw in one of their special metal coat hangers for making me wait. we'll see what's in my package.

For heavy steel, Maingun.biz ships fast with no B.S. I bought from Cati as well and remember no delays.

.25" Patriot Plates are in-stock, but the .18" 6 pounders are not.

I just wanted to add my experience. I ordered a pair of their 10X12 lightweight level III plates last Monday at 8:00 PM. The plates were delivered to me by Friday.
