A Kings Mountain company, Premier Body Armor, makes the bulletproof inserts.
The ones that Nichols Store is selling are top-rated to stop any pistol round up to .44 caliber. The inserts weigh just over a pound and are less than 1/2 inch thick.
The inserts cost anywhere from $120 to $200 and have a five-year life span.
Nichols said she is working with her staff, who teach classes for concealed weapons permits, to begin offering classes for parents on using the inserts and understanding what they do.
