I'm retiring... Anybody want my body armor?

Since I am tired of getting shot at, I am quitting combat journalism in favor of a more sedentary life. I still have nearly-new body armor, however, collecting dust, wasting money. It’s level IV (military-spec, but civilian-purchased and completely legal). Anybody have ideas on how I should sell it? EBay won’t allow me to sell the armor plates that come with it, or the groin protector (eBay has drawn a very arbitrary line in the sand, I suppose). Any suggestions?
