    I am based in the US. I have a friend in Bikol who is a PNP officer. He wants to get a ballistic vest and would like for me to get one for him here in the US and send it to him but we just have no idea if it is possible and legal to ship a vest to him in Phils. Anyone know if this is OK to do?

    Thanks. That shoots that down. I had not even thought of ITAR applying to the vests and was thinking more about Phil. law.

    Ownership of Ballistic Vests in the Philippines is supposed to be covered by certain
    restrictions, with mandatory registration involved (Hq-PC Circular 1 27Apr1981), but
    as your friend is in the PNP, that is not an issue.
    Ballistic Vests are available locally, NIJ IIIA to IV.

    It's actually possible that most of PNP-FED doesn't know it (or care) either.

    It is least of their (PNP) concern. I would imagine that they would run after loose FA's as priority.

    I have one in QC. Still in plastic, unused Level IIA Second Chance. PM me. Standard model used by street cops in LA.
