Not a bad price. You checked the plates etc out really well I assume.

I'd say good luck on your self defense argument if you shoot someone while wearing it.

A Marine sold that to you? Army needs to keep up with their stuff better. On a side note, I don't think you'll have any problem owning military issue (i don't know though, personally I'd take the pics down and claim ignorance), but SOMEONE got into trouble over that. Losing gear can carry legal and financial penalties.

Someone probably had to pay for it. Sometimes paperwork gets messed up though and its easier to "lose" the gear. It happens. You're fine having it ,its not your responsibility and you may have been doing someone a favor. They are available as surplus. Don't worry about it.

when the time comes that I actually use it there won't be any worries about charges filed cause there likely won't be a police force to charge.... or protect me and my family
