Point Blank Solutions to Showcase Latest NIJ .06 Body Armor at SHOT Show 2010

Company Will Demonstrate Newest "Special Threats Protection" Capabilities With DuPont™ Kevlar® XP™

POMPANO BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - January 14, 2010) - Point Blank Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PBSO), a leader in the field of protective body armor, today announced that it will be exhibiting several of its new ballistic models certified under the latest NIJ Standard-0101.06 at the 2010 Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show and Conference (SHOT Show). Considered the largest and most comprehensive event for professionals involved with the shooting sports and hunting industries, SHOT Show kicks off on January 19th and runs through the 22nd at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

"SHOT Show is a great forum to showcase our new, NIJ .06 solutions and meet with many of our key customers and partners," stated Mike Foreman, SVP of Sales and Marketing. "We are very excited about our 2010 line-up, which includes 15 newly certified ballistic models designed to provide officers with the greatest level of protection against increased threats. Working with partners such as DuPont Protection Technologies, we continue to develop and integrate the most innovative technologies, and remain committed to delivering solutions to our customers when they demand them. Already, we have a number of federal, state and local agencies adopting NIJ .06 systems with DuPont™ Kevlar® XP™ technology, and look forward to sharing our insights on user trends with attendees."

The Company's subsidiaries, Point Blank Body Armor and Protective Apparel Corporation of America (PACA), will display some of the most advanced lines of concealable and tactical body armor and accessory products, including newly enhanced packages for female officers. Among the products to be showcased are:

--  PBBA's Vision®, a high-performance concealable body armor system
    designed to suit personal needs for thinness and flexibility, with the
    optimal combination of comfort and protection.
    
--  PACA's Blue Steel™ concealable vest featuring the same advanced
    ballistic capabilities as Vision®, coupled with a temperature-regulating
    carrier construction to keep officers exceptionally cool and dry.
    
--  PBBA's Hi-Lite™ vest which offers the ultimate fusion of protection
    and comfort. This concealable carrier comes with a new design that provides
    greater range of motion, flexibility and adjustability.
    
--  PACA's Perform-X concealable vest which provides optimum protective
    coverage with ergonomically-enhanced materials that keep the wearer cooler,
    dryer and more comfortable.
    
--  PBBA's Dragon Fire™, a performance-driven, side-opening tactical armor
    system that combines ultimate coverage and maneuverability.
    
--  PACA's Four Star tactical vest which provides maximum protective
    coverage, extreme versatility in fit and enhanced adjustability for greater
    mobility.
    

With more NIJ .06 certifications than any other body armor manufacturer in the industry, the Company will have on display, several new ballistic packages including Hi-Lite XP™ and Perform XP™, constructed of 100% DuPont™ Kevlar® XP™, a new patented woven fabric technology. These latest solutions with Kevlar® XP™ were specially developed to protect against growing threat levels and to deliver incredible bullet-stopping power under various extreme field conditions (heat, humidity, cold, and mechanical wear). DuPont independent lab tests have illustrated that Kevlar® XP™ consistently stops most bullets within the second or third layer of a ballistic panel. The remaining layers absorb the bullet's energy and tests have shown that the fabric decreases back face signature (BFS) by 15% or more, thereby reducing potentially serious ballistic and trauma injuries. It is also up to 10% lighter than other commercially available technologies designed to defeat the most challenging NIJ Level IIIA ballistic threat -- the 44 Magnum.

Other flagship products such as the Assault-One and SPIDER® vests, Rapid Response Plate Carrier, Multi-Component Plate Harness, Stretcher, as well as the Company's exclusive ThorShield™ electroshock weapon protection technology will also be exhibited. Attendees are invited to view solutions and speak one-on-one with the PBBA and PACA team at booth #11163.
