Three AR rifle mag pouches in od green for $15. These have straps across the back similar to Esstac or Tactical Tailor pouches which can be woven in with malice clips (not included) and have velcro loop on the front up top.

Pretty stout pouches, not spendy, only in od green. Holds gi mags and PMag no problem (gen 2's, anyway).

These work pretty well on a war belt or a chest rig. They're deep with a bit of shock cord around the mouth, and I'd rate retention somewhere just behind a kywi pouch. Probably best with a mag which has ranger plates or magpulls or something, because they are deep.

"Flawlessly". Every time I see this word in a thread, I brace myself for bullshit. Around half the time I end up feeling vindicated.

Great BOB multi tool opportunity. West Marine has sales on Leatherman combo sets: Rebar + Micra $21.66 and Super Tool 300 and Micra $25.55. Free shipping to store.
http://www.westmarine.com/buy/leatherma ... --14546519
http://www.westmarine.com/buy/leatherma ... --14772578

This is a good deal on the primary multi tool alone, and then you get a Micra thrown in. Save the Micra for a little survival kit :)

You have to be a paid member to use Bartertown. And this thread really isn't for your personal stuff. But mods rarely enforce rules in this thread. So cheers. Hopefully their good deals. :)

Esbit CS585HA 3-Piece Lightweight Camping Cook Set (for use with solid fuel tablets) Regularly $29.99, on sale $19.92 ships free with Amazon Prime or FSSS.

http://www.amazon.com/Esbit-CS585HA-3-P ... sbit+stove

An historic low per Camelcamelcamel.com http://camelcamelcamel.com/Esbit-CS585H ... B001UERXOQ

A turnkey bugout cooking solution. The nice thing about this design is you can substitute a DIY alcohol stove as the heat source. Making your own aluminum can alcohol stove is sort of a bugout enthusiast's rite of passage http://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Jet ... ered-Stov/ but the issue always becomes how and what sort of cooking vessel do you support above it? The Esbit cooking set neatly solves that problem and if you go this route, you can still use hexamine tablets as back up source of fuel. http://www.amazon.com/Esbit-Degree-Smok ... el+tablets

T.H.E. U.A.P. (Ultimate Assault Pack) New for 2013, Spec.-Ops Brand presents the latest in 3-Day / Assault pack evolution: T.H.E. Pack U.A.P. Based on our top-rated, battle proven T.H.E. Pack, we have improved cargo access, ergonomics, comfort & durability without compromising the core features that have made T.H.E. Pack the number one selling, legitimate individual Tactical Assault pack in both Iraq and Afghanistan for the past 10 years!

TRULY MODULAR: The first pack of its kind! Fully Modular both inside and out! See our complete line of Drop-in, bolton gear organizers for electronics, personal gear, Hydration management, load carrying and comfort.
INCREASED CARGO OPTIONS: We added a padded, zippered body panel for additional storage, optional frame sheet, SAPI / ballistic plates, or soft armor panels. (also makes a great admin pocket for Laptops & tablets as well).
NEW DOUBLE-DOWN GRID-LOK PANEL: 2 FUNCTIONS IN ONE: Our combination of Velcro and modular accessory mounting system allows for attachment of additional cargo pouches & Velcro backed military insignia, name tapes and most importantly, the USA flag!
FASTER-EASIER CARGO ACCESS: We have re-positioned the zippered access points of our 3 main cargo compartments to facilitate easier opening and closing while loaded as well as adding to the useable volume of each compartment.
BALANCED HYDRATION: No more lump on the back! We have relocated the Hydration pocket to the mid-point of the pack (between main compartment and outer pockets) for greater comfort, better balance and easier insertion / removal of bladders.
FULL INSIDE VISIBILITY: Now the entire interior of the main cargo pocket is fully lined in our trademark High-Viz yellow for even better visibility and easier access to contents
OPTIMIZED STORAGE: We moved the zipper on the main compartment to an outer position to create a trap-door style pack for better cargo management.
INCREASED DURABILITY: We added to our already bomb-proof design with a double-layer, monolithic pack body with fewer seams & stress points to increase overall strength & durability. PLUS, all attachment loops, drag handles and zippers are sewn completely through the pack's double layer body for maximum strength.
BATTLE PROVEN SHOULDER HARNESS: Our one-piece breathable shoulder pad design still the toughest most functional on the market! (OVER 250,000 PACKS AND NOT A SINGLE PACK RETURNED WITH A HARNESS FAILURE!).
DESIGNED TO LAST: Made from time tested 1000D Cordura Nylon fabric, huge YKK # 10 USA Made self-healing zippers and our exclusive patented BATTLE BUCKLES hardware - All put together with combat proven manufacturing!
Pack Dimensions: 19" high, 13" wide, 12" thick at bottom tapering to 9" at top. Main Compartment: 19" high x 13" wide x 7" thick @ 1730 cubic inches. Top Pocket: 8" high x 10" wide x 2.5" thick @ 250 cubic inches. Bottom Pocket: 10" high x 12" wide x 3.5" thick @ 570 cubic inches. Padded Zippered Body Panel: 18.75" high x 12" wide x 1.125" thick @ 253.125 cubic inches
Total Capacity: 2803.125 cubic inches.
100% MADE IN THE U.S.A GUARANTEED FOR LIFE!!!

If you've ever wanted a USGI "lighter weight" Goretex jacket. And not the heavy weight ECWCS stuff that is heavy and does not stuff well. Or just need a great hard shell at a killer price. Here's a pretty great price. TAG is a good place. I have no connection to them. (See below for a better endorsement. These were apparently made for special forces who wanted a lighter weight version of the overly heavy ECWCS jacket.)

$35 for a USGI jacket reversible woodland/desert. Shipping is like $7. These are lighter weight goretex jackets. Perfect for hiking and backpacking. Stuff fairly small. (They have the heavier weight but only in limited sizes.) These are a great hard shell at an unbeatable price. I bought one for my son. It's not like the typical ECWCS jacket - big and bulky. These are thinner and lighter weight but rugged. And sizes up to 2xl long.

http://www.tacticalassaultgearstore.com ... ckets.html

Traditional ECWCS heavy weight pants' are $40:

http://www.tacticalassaultgearstore.com ... ckets.html

Some comments from a more knowledgeable person than I on another forum:

"These are a phenomenal deal. It's rare that they can be found retail. Damn near impossible to find in previous years. TAG must have lucked into a shipment of New Old Stock.

I used the Adventure Tech plain woodland version (non-reversible; pants & jacket set) for years. They were issue in my unit. Significantly lighter, more comfortable to wear, quieter, less stiff, and way more packable than standard ECWS Goretex. Each jacket & pant stashes into its own pocket. I still use a woodland/desert jacket I've had for years. If you are on the cusp between sizes, order the next size up."

"As long as you get them large enough in size to allow for layering. They are not as good at blocking hard wind as the heavier ECWS Goretex, but they are so much more comfortable to wear, less bulky, and lighter to carry. I've worn them skiing.

They were originally designed to meet SOF requirements, because we bitched about regular issue ECWS Goretex being too heavy (and bulky to pack away). This stuff you can fit inside of a butt pack, a thigh cargo pocket, or an assault pack.

Think of them as light windbreaker breathable rain wear. Like a soft shell in terms of comfort, but much better for actual hard rain. ECWS Goretex fabric is stiff and hangs off of you. This stuff is more like a lightweight nylon runners jacket. It drapes across your torso & limbs. I never used my Army issue Goretex in the field while I was issued the Adventure Tech stuff. Nobody else on my teams used the heavier stuff either. Kept us just as dry for half the weight and half the stowed pack volume."

Seems a Glocktastic Deal (in .40) on GEN II/III

$279/$299

You will party like it is 1991.

https://www.classicfirearms.com/glock-2 ... ght-sights

https://www.classicfirearms.com/glock-2 ... ght-sights


While we are at it let's throw some .40 boolits in there for only $10.99 /box.

http://palmettostatearmory.com/winchest ... a40sw.html

Buy a thousand rounds of .40 and a GEN II and you are out the door for under $500. Doesn't get much better than that.

But it does...

Now you can get the highly sought after KelTec Sub 2000 (in .40) for only a few dollars more $419. Which is actually the MSRP, and you never see it listed at that anymore.

https://www.preppergunshop.com/index.ph ... b2k-gen-2/

So you gets a long gun, a short gun and some ammo. $900 and you are fully prepared for the ZPAW.
