Riggs Shield Product Disclaimer

It is the SOLE responsibility of the purchaser to ensure that all transactions conform to U.S. and Federal, State and Local Statutes, Codes, and Ordinances. We Sell ONLY to Law Enforcement and Military customers. The Riggs Shield™ is a purely defensive item but, regardless, we are very sensitive to the possibility of shields being misused by criminals. By buying a shield from us, you certify that you are law-abiding, of adult age, and have no felony convictions. We do not sell to felons or minors, and it is against the law for a felon to possess Body Armor under both federal law (unless required by your employer, see, Sec. 931) and is also illegal under state law in many states. We cooperate with law enforcement to stop the use of shields by criminals. If you have any criminal purpose in mind (or resell your armor to a criminal) you do NOT want to have bought Armor from us!

We reserve the right to refuse to sell to anyone, in our sole discretion. By buying armor you guarantee that you are not legally prohibited from owning firearms, or body armor, and also that you are not associated with any criminal group, in any way, and have only a lawful purpose for owning body armor.

Types of Use:  The Riggs Shield is to be used for defensive purposes only.  The Riggs Shield is not designed as an impact weapon and has not been tested for use as an impact weapon. Striking a subject with the Riggs Shield could result in injury to the user or the subject receiving the strike.

NO Armor is 100% Bulletproof:

The Riggs Shield™ will protect you from the vast majority of pistol ballistic threats that you are ever likely to face. But there is always a trade-off between more protection and more mobility (and the constraint to stay within your budget). Please know that:
- rifle rounds
- unusual high velocity pistol ammunition

- pistol ammo fired from a rifle barrel
- armor piercing ammunition
- other unusual ammunition or situations...
CAN defeat the shield.

Also, at some angles projectiles can slide, or deflect off the edges of the shield, or ricochet. Furthermore, projectiles that are successfully stopped by the shield will always produce some level of injury, resulting in severe bruising, broken bones, and possibly serious internal injury or even death. The shield defeats most pistol and shotgun projectiles, but NO shield on earth makes you invulnerable to all threats. To state the obvious, getting shot ALWAYS carries some risk. Be aware that your head is much more susceptible to blunt trauma than your body. ANY impact of a bullet to the shield CAN CAUSE INJURY AND CAN CAUSE DEATH. You put the odds more in your favor with head protection, but, just as with ANY armor, no guarantee of invulnerability can be made.

By buying our shield you assume ALL risks of use or misuse, and agree not to hold the manufacturer, its distributor or authorized sales agents liable in any way. In addition, YOU are responsible to ensure that your shield is not damaged and that the nylon outer bag is in good condition. It is the responsibility of the installer and user to ensure that the shield does not interfere with any of the vehicle's safety devices and that none of the vehicle's controls are blocked by the shield.
