Thank you for that! I will try to order the shell PA again on the 16th. The MilExch told me on Monday per the vendor the shell PA were not available. On a separate note I noticed since Wednesday morning on the AE site the walnut shell Strands and walnut shell Dalton boots are no longer listed. When the AE customer service rep called me last week about my shell Bradley's she mentioned it could take awhile to get my replacements because their shell supplier was behind by about a month. Don't know if the walnut shell removal is temporary due to that or a permanent decision.
