    Not sure if this is the right location for this info,

    Just back from Florida and picked up some stuff over there. Found two surplus suppliers in the Orlando area with a large number of BDUs both new and surplus

    Als Army Navy
    http://www.alsarmynavy.com
    23 N. Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando, FL 32805.
    plenty of surplus uniforms, packs etc. when i was there they had Magnum boots for about US$80, but they had a large selection of other boots too, vests, holsters etc. I picked up a surplus Unifom and pants for about US€50 same price for the new stuff.

    American Army Navy

    6210 S. Orange Blossom Trail, Orlando, FL 32809
    smaller store than the above one, but probably a better area of town as its a few minutes from the Florida Mall. teh guy working there on the day was great help, they've a large selection on new BUD patters and a small selection of surplus stuff in teh back, they also carry some airsoft gear. prices were the same as Als Army Navy

    Monji the guy that runs it is very helpful, i contacted him before i went over and he ordered stuff in and held it for me til i got there. Prices seemed good (didnt look at the AEGs for obvious reasons). for example he had the tornedo impact grenades on sale for US$80 the day I went in to him. a range of sights/scopes there, plent of BDUs and other assecories. has left and right handed tac vests same with drop leg holsters and so on. prices seemed reasonable, vests for about US$60

    not sure if they would ship Internationally but I figured i'd post it up incase eanyone was heading over

    I'm not long home from hols there myself. You alluded to the fact that American Army-Navy is in a better part of town than Al's. Although it's not far from Florida Mall my friends (who live at the other end of Sand Lake) advised me not to go to AAN as it was not a great area, but they told me in no uncertain terms not to go anywhere near Al's. OK, I went to AAN and it was fine, but you can definitely tell the difference between there and the tourist areas.

    Given how good the AAN website looks I was disappointed by the size of this particular store, they had some nice stuff at good prices but it seemed to be only one or two of each piece so finding the right size was a challenge.

    american army Navy was small alright and i was dissapointed coz i couldnt get everything I wanted from them (was looking for ABUs but he didnt have any surplus in my size), when i was there they had a good range of types of camoflague patterns (new not surplus) and a large rangs of pant sizes, for shirts as i picked up tiger stripe i had to search a bit as he only had a few but I got my size (XXL) no problem. plenty of teh woodland pattern and others the down side was a lack of tac vests and such. its a small store but the guy working there was very helpful. when i asked where the BDUs were he immediatly asked my waste size and told me what size to look for and pointout out where the changing room was, helped me look for the shirt i wanted etc, then pointed me over to his small selection of airsoft accessories.

    it is located is off the beaten track and the area looks run down, lots of dodgey looking second hand dealer ships etc, but the area looked a hell of a lot better than Als on 23 NOBT. it is away from the tourist areas for sure, about half wat between the florida Mall and the Mall at Mellenia. but at least its not up a small side road and just on the main road itself.

    when i went to Als on NOBT i contemplated running red lights to get the hell out of there and tourists stick out like a sore tumb. lets just say i walekd in, got what i wanted and did not linger enjoying the scenery. lots of people begging on the streets etc.

    its unfortunate but I've found these types of stores always seem to be located in these areas, even when i was in TX a few years before it was the same.

    Toy Soilder Spots is located up the street form the Fashon Square Mall on E colonial Drive, so send teh missus in there shopping and you could head into TSS,
