    Here are a couple of interesting websites.

    Government Surplus Auctions at Government Liquidation This is sort of like eBay for government surplus items. Need a pallet load of bayonets?

    A buddy of a co-worker recently purchased a US Army duece and a half and trailer from this site. The truck cost him $2,500, plus $1,000 to have it shipped. He paid $400 for the trailer and went to pick it up himself with his Suburban at Fort Sill Oklahoma. The truck and trailer are in almost perfect condition.

    Don't ask what the hell he is going to do with it, but wouldn't you like to have a rig like this?

    Uncle Sam's Retail Outlet I linked to this from the other site. I picked up some once fired 7.62 brass, a miltary pistol web belt and pistol holster for not too much money,

    0001 - Uncategorized at Government Liquidation

    4, 760 lbs(approx) 5. 56mm fired brass in 8 plastic drums at 22lb each and two oak pallets weighing 50# each. That is equal to almost 4500 lbs of 556 brass. At 92gr for each case that is aprox 342,000 brass cases.

    OK, now I know who to blame. Scubie called me while I was at work last night and asked if he could buy "some" 5.56 brass. Then he asked about a deuce and a half!!!

    But… But….But sweetheart.. Honestly, we really do need a deuce and a half. Just think of how much ammo we can carry in it, and it would be really useful next June for the Meet-N-Greet to carry everyone to the range.
