Hock Bo Arms??

Pics up!
Humm, Picked this up a while back off ebay and was wondering if anyone had any history on it.
It is a SC vest made by Hock Bo Arms in Fort Collins, CO. It is woodland camo and holds 24 tubes in pockets with loops and 4(kinda odd) 12 grams also in a pocket with loops. When I saw it I thought it was a modded BDU top but it isn't.


Tag a bit out of focus so here is the smaller text:
"Did I have fun or get murdered hanging around you.
Wash me in warm water and soap. No bleach. Tumble dry."

Hmm interesting design. It doesn't look like a standard USGI styled vest? (6 pouch vest in woodland, 4 for m16 mags, 2 for grenades) it could be a small company. Way it sounds, its probably a small business.
Im curious (off topic sorta) if there are riggers in the armed forces who could conceivably build a mil-sim styled rig that would securely hold 10rd tubes and 12 grams?

Sure.. they would just use shotgun shell loop patterns for the 12 grams... and you can get 10-12 Ten Round tubes in a M16 Mag pouch.. so depending on if you wanted a partition or you wanted loops.... it's not hard to do if you have sewing experience and a machine that can handle the thicker material.

"Hock Bo" sounds Korean.

...Ok, so that's maybe 2% helpful, but it's all I've got on the matter! Maybe it's produced by uh... The massive Korean immigrant population of Colorado!

I was looking at some VR entries and apparently Hockbo was supposed to distribute this Falcon gun. At least, that's what the ad says.
