The Boyscouts have it right with their motto “always be prepared.” Of course, just how many things can one person be prepared for? Well if you’re someone that works in an office, you can keep yourself ready for a shootout simply by having the right office supplies around. Which office supplies? Just one, a Bulletproof Clipboard.
A company by the name of Ballistic Systems specializes in clipboards that can take a bullet. Obviously aimed at law enforcement officials, the boards come in either 9” x 12” or 9” x 14” and start at $30. Keep a couple of these and a roll of duct tape around, and you’ve got yourself a makeshift bulletproof vest. Of course you could also just keep an actual bulletproof vest around if you’re that worried about getting caught in crossfire.
