The Walmart in Irvine, California is blowing out a lot of UST company items. The BlastMatch was down to $9

Stormproof matches but in an orange case were $2.50

Local Walmarts are blowing out a 400 lumen handheld spolight under the Ozark Trail brand. I'd almost swear the Black & Decker branded replacements are the same manufacturer. Anyhow, it has an 8 hour run time, a good CREE LED light source and runs on 3 C cells.

Original price $29 then down to $13 and now at $9

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Generic-20136 ... t/42441351

The light is definitely bright and focused. At 3 feet it is about 3" and it easily lights up some electric company towers 100 yards away. Very lightweight. A bargain at $9

I kid you not, only 25 cents each at my local WalMart's bargain shelf. I guess Brunton has discontinued them. Still a few on Ebay for $37

Each shirt has a little bag in one front pocket for a sew-on epaulet kit. I plan to use those to extend the wrist area just enough to make the fit a little looser but not really be an obvious extension.

Katadyn Hiker Pro Microfilter $64.73 shipped at Amazon.

http://www.amazon.com/Katadyn-8018273-H ... ter+Filter

Not to be confused with the non-Pro model, which sells for about $10 less. Per Camelx3, this isn't the historic low, that was on 11/22/13 when the price briefly dipped to $53.65 before shooting back up to about $70. Since then it's only dipped below this current price about 10 times and it's been averaging about $72.

A good, if not exactly stellar price if you're currently in the market for a compact, robust backcountry filter system.

They had 10% off .223 and .308 weapons a couple weeks ago. I fondled the Springfield M1A SOCOM... did not buy... but lust. *sigh*

Amazon.com has the older generation Surefire EB1 for $80 right now as everyone is clearing out for the new version. I have the original E1B that is still going strong, and this version gives you 200 lumens on high, and a secondary mode of 5 lumens. Pretty sure it's only on its second battery in like 5 years. The Surefire E Series lights have great throw for their size. I picked one up for myself and thought I'd pass it along as they are a great price on a great light.

Blackhawk has a 50% rebate on their Serpa line of holsters:

https://sporting.myonlinerebate.com/10656/

Find them already on sale, and another 50% can easily get them down to under $20. I just got one for $27 on Amazon. The rebate will drop it to $13.50.

Any left handed Glock 19 shooters?

I saw this on fleabay, eighteen hours left on the auction. I'm right handed or I'd bid.

Springs/followers look/feel fine. Floorplates have never hit the floor on these.

Just got 'em now so haven't tested them yet. If you put 'em in a new box I don't think I could tell they were used.

I usually get these new from Greg Cote LLC for ~$26. I did order the Xgrip extenders for these from him. Rcvd them on Monday.
