I didn't even notice that. I don't know about their sleeping bags. But VooDoo Tactical makes bombproof tactical stuff for leo and military. They're factory is right next door to this surplus store. I think the same guy owns both. The surplus store carries a full line of VooDoo products.

More a prepping deal. Publix gives away a $10 gift card for store purchase with a flu shot (if you have insurance or Medicare).

Speaking of deals that are more properly prepping than bugging out, Eton's FRX3+ Emergency Weather Radio is on sale for $35 - about $25 off the typical $59.99 selling price.

https://smile.amazon.com/American-Emerg ... Cross+FRX3

An all time historic low per Camelx3 https://camelcamelcamel.com/American-Em ... B00HSHH5DI

Solar, hand crank and battery powered, includes NOAA weather band reception, digital tuning, LED light, a mini-USB cable and supposedly enhanced cellphone charging capability.

Too big for a man-portable BOB, this would work for a vehicular-based bug out kit or more importantly, as part of a sensible family disaster preparation kit.

Make FEMA proud!

Greetings,

Again, thanks for all the folks who keep this thread alive. I have profited many times. This is a great deal. Like back to 2005 prices. Quality is as you can expect from Russian ammo. 1000 rounds under $200 + tax, shipped.

Esbit Ultralight folding pocket stove $5.99 on Amazon
https://smile.amazon.com/Esbit-Ultralig ... el+Tablets

An all time historic low price by a comfortable margin according to Camelx3: https://camelcamelcamel.com/Esbit-Ultra ... B001C1UGVO

Pretty much an idiot-proof cooking solution for your BOB, GHB or emergency field ration kit. One drawback I've found is the heat output is a little marginal for cold weather if your objective is to bring a litre of water to a full, rolling boil. Burn times can be extended by adding some kindling as the fuel tab is expended. Individually sealed fuel tablets are a plus because they have an unpleasant dead fish odor until they're lit.

That is really cheap with free shipping. It is a little less without free shipping if someone can take advantadge of that.

I guess some suppliers knew that the price drop was coming and hence the push to get people to order at higher prices. Failed on me.

Colt Firearms AR15 LE6920-OEM2 Black .223 Rem/ 5.56 16.1-Inch 30Rd No Furniture $670. Probably the best way to get into a quality AR. The lowest price I've ever seen myself is $650. But that was spring summer 2017. You add furniture yourself. Which you probably want to customize anyway. Colt makes a top tier AR.

Above is several places to choose from. This is the cheapest place that has it in stock. https://gunprime.com/product/clt-ar15-5 ... nt-post-2/

Kelty Noah 12 Tarp $39.96 @ Amazon
https://smile.amazon.com/Kelty-Noahs-Ta ... slickdeals

Close out on last year's model. Normal price is $69.95. Close to the historic low per Camelcamelcamel https://camelcamelcamel.com/Kelty-40820 ... ice_amazon

A hyperbolic paraboloid, I believe. Similar to the old Moss Parawing. Does not include poles. A bit fussy to set up, but if done properly provides excellent protection. Would be good as an emergency shelter, paired with a hammock or, as is case for me, extra shelter when car camping. FYI: not my picture, but illustrates hyperbolic paraboloid shape when set up correctly:

Here's a review that goes over the standard set up configurations:

Breakfast station. Looks a handy size for a shelter if you have the juice to run it.

Wow. That looks like a complete redesign of the stock at least too. I'll have to check out Savages site. Comes in .06 too. Dang. CDNN had the 111 on sale for $350 this summer. Hard to decide which one is a better deal. You're killing me here Sterc. ;) And with a Weaver scope. That's incredible that one of the top three manufacturers of bolt guns would have an .06 for $189! Those are like 1960's prices. And Savage is my favorite manufacturer.

PS - Make sure you scroll all the way to this deal. There is another Savage Axis II on like page 4 or something. This deal is further along in the ad.

Don't know how I missed it but right next to the rifle is an advert for 10% more off for military through the 11th. If it stacks that drops the price to $170, which I am certain is below cost and super-duper cheap. I might have to swing by there today.
