$200 multicam 2 rifle 3 pistol cordura soft case with shoulder straps for $89. Probably would fit even more. Great looking range bag. Made in the usa.

Center Point Spectrum 4-12 X 44 FFP Scope

https://www.academy.com/shop/pdp/crosma ... riflescope

Currently on in unadvertised Store Clearance at $71.82 until August 4th, this is almost $70 cheaper than I can find it anywhere on line.

This was designed as an air rifle scope but it is really over built. I have read reviews of people putting them on 300WM; which I do not suggest. I did however put one on a 308 and it works just fine and holds zero. It is actually heavier and more solidly built than the scope that came with my R783 so I put it on there. I do not recall seeing a FFP scope at this price point either.

AmazonBasics 75L Internal Frame Backpack (Black) $35.67 shipped https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B06Y57GNY1/ ... =UTF8&th=1

Definitely not mil-spec and I'm not sure I'd want to hike the AT with this. But it gets very good reviews, has decent technical features and at $36 represents a metric crap-ton of value. Would make a great foundation for a BOB/GHB on a budget. Includes a rainfly and those vertical and horizontal compression straps mean you can cinch this down considerably for your core gear; with beaucoup extra capacity for last minute additions before you head the hell out of Dodge. This price is only for the low profile/grey man black color. 8-)

Just to add to Stercutus's point: "Air rifle scope", all other things being equal, is actually a testament to durability. In air gun parlance, a scope advertised as much means the optical elements are anchored in a way to withstand the destructive bi-directional recoil of heavy spring piston airguns. FYI: Monstrum also makes some inexpensive FFP scopes. No idea of their quality through.

This place is going out of business in UK. Great deals. If anyone in UK wants to forward me some gear from there. I'd gladly pay you. They don't ship to the US. Everything is on sale 40%-60% off.

Spanish M65 Field Jacket w/liner $15!

https://www.majorsurplus.com/spanish-m6 ... =HTMLEmail

Comes with liner.

This is my local surplus store. These jackets are a bit thinner and lighter weight than the traditional US version. According to one of the reviews. But that might be good for those in warmer climates or for summer/fall use. And it comes with the liner. Pretty good deal to me. They run one size small. And only come in 2xl and 3xl. So if your 1xl and 2xl your good to go. One size away from mine (3xl). So I had to pass. But I'm buying one for my friend that gave me his 2xl OD Green Boy Scout wool jac-shirt for free. Ya. This jacket won't make up for it. But it's a start.

Shipping wasn't bad either. I don't think they gouge you at this place. I purchased a lot of stuff from them over the years. It's actually in the same space as VooDoo Tactical's factory. I think they might be owned by the same people.

I think this is the new company of the Golite founder. If you're searching for a good deal on a down jacket or rain gear or an ultralight backpack in the middle of summer. It's time. Everything is 70% off. Down jackets from 700 power to 850 for $79-$149. Normally in the hundreds of dollars. I just got a 700 down jacket for $79 (normally $230) and not only does it fit me perfectly but it's well made. I just purchased the 850 tonight. And if your big sizes there XXL goes up to 54 inch chest. Thank goodness. Hard to find down jackets or rain jackets in that size on sale.

Walther Creed $269. Good deal on a largish carry pistol or smaller full size. Why did they have to make it so HiPoint ugly? Walther, Walther what happened here?

Greetings,

A recommendation and a deal... although be it not really a "bug-out" deal. I highly recommend for a cheap carry piece either the SCCY CPX-1 or CPX-2. They can be had for under $200 multiple places. It is a surprisingly great little American made hand gun, an awesome warranty and comes in a variety of colors and... if you have a significant other who needs one to match their shoes... or Jeep. :)

https://gun.deals/search/apachesolr_search/sccy

For the former military minded shopper... I really hate to see this guy go. His jerseys have been great quality and it will be tough to find anything similar in the future. 75% off the price in your shopping cart and free shipping if the in-cart price exceeds $100. Use code 75OFF at check out. Sale ends 31 August and he is gone. And they are selling fast.

Thanks to all of you loyal folks who have been carrying this thread for years now. I certainly have taken advantage of many of your posts.

These are on sale at Amazon again. Prime too. $12.30 (Just got mine from Walmart today. Bevel ground but no edge sharpening. Which is fine with me. I wanted to customize it anyway. Solid machete. Fairly thick. Not flimsy. Feels full tang - although as you can see in the pic the handle is smaller than the blade - to be expected. Very solid. I feel like as long as the handle holds up it will be a great machete. Really nice sheath. I mean for $13 it's a pretty good machete. I'll write a review once I get to use it.)

Bought a lefty version of that for a buddy not long ago. It's a crappy Tasco scope that's pure junk but the rifle seems to be a good shooter and adding a better scope to it made it a pretty good groundhog gun for him.

How can you beat that price? Are mags hard to find? What capacity do they go up to?

The mags are pretty standard for most Savage rifles I think. I've seen them in 5 and 10 round versions. They aren't exactly cheap though. The 10 round mag for my .22WMR was about $25 and works like crap. The cut for the mag release was made too high on it so it sits low in the mag well and has to be pushed up. For. Every. Shot. and still often jams. Maybe the ones for .22LR are better, I don't know. They seem to be about $15 from CTD
