Today was pretty good. I had a half day off work.

At yard sales I found the following
5x6 tent (For the kids)
6 sleeping bags
Crossbow with 6 bolts
Air matters (queen size)
Air compresser that runs off the ligher in the car


And got yelled at because I won't give a lady $150 for here tent.

Started repacking my BOB today also. Found out I have lost a few items

I've added 1,500 rounds of .223 I got from an individual that had gotten rid of his EBR and no longer needed it.
Torn my BOBs apart and re-packed them.
Cleaned all my weapons, etc, etc.

Learning to reload my own ammo.... Its a win-win..... I dont have to "dip" into my surplus stash anymore and I can afford to shoot on a regular basis now!!

Working on getting more dies, I only have them for my lever-guns right now (Win 95, .30-40 K; Marlin .30-30) Next for my Arisaka then the Mosin and the SKS.....

Bought a bunch of new web gear. Went crazy on the brand new surplus flecktarn gear, cool stuff, uber-high quality and CHEAP!

Just added 60lbs of rice sealed in % gal buckets, 12 mixed #10 cans and 40 MRE Entrees to the larder.

We went under a boil order for 3 days over the 4th weekend and used up a few cases of water so I replaced them.

As I do EVERYTIME i shop at WALLYWORLD i bought 100 rnds of Winchester whitebox 9mm and the same of 45acp, 2x 2pk propane and 2x 3 pk of emergency candles from the camping section and a thing of gun oil (I alternate between cleaning supplies each time)

A friend just bought a ton of military stuff from a soldier who was getting out. He gave some of the stuff he couldn't use. I got a leather US shoulder holster that will hold my P89 or 1911, three M-16 molle pouches that will hold two each mags from my LR308, and acu tops and bottoms that fit perfectly that must be almost brand new. Now I need an lbv.

Default Where did you find this

DrGonzo where did you shop? "Went crazy on the brand new surplus flecktarn gear, cool stuff, uber-high quality and CHEAP!" The CHEAP part really brings it home for me. Thanks
