    YES, excellent stuff Philip, I wish I had some interceptor body armor...But we have 7 cats now all scattered about the house, and 1 maybe 2 in particular LOVE my uniforms...in fact...I EVEN bought them their own Portugese Lizard camo jacket to "lay" on...because for some reason they liked that pattern the best...go figure...maybe it was the "lizard" of it all..IDK..but anytime I get stuff in..they make a beeline to walk/lay/roll on etc. LUCKILY, I have NEVER had them pee on it....I have had them tell me it stunk, but NEVER peed... lol!

    Nice rigs there, Philip. You are lucky to have them. As you probably know, military-issue IBAs are controlled items and the DOD is cracking down even harder on anyone selling or buying them. We have had CID come through local shops near Fort Lewis and confiscate every IBA and ACH - they had warrants and local LE to assist them. They are taking this issue very seriously. Most local shops will no longer even buy IBAs, so there is really no source for them unless you are in the military or have connections to GIs.

    There has also been an announcement on Ebay that they will no longer allow any type of current issue body armor to be sold.

    WOW...the ONLY body armor I have been able to find is the old kevlar stuff, in fact I am getting ready to buy the armor & another DCU from that USAF Special Forces guy. He used the armor in Afghanistan before he aquired the newer stuff with the plates...
