Another Bargain Gear Item

I went to a local auction today and I normally do not even leave an absentee bid. I hate to wait around for them to get to the items I am interested in. I saw three things that I Wanted. Two Marine Ghillie Suits and a Blackhawk S.O.F. Ruck Pack Kit. I put in some bids and left. This afternoon I went back to see if I got anything. I missed out on the suits but I got the Backpack. It lists for $383.00 on the Blackhawk site. I paid $60.00. It has tons of room and many pockets. It is new and I think it was an Issue item to the same guy who had the suits. Below is an image from the Blackhawk site. Both of the large side pockets have Alice clips for removal. WOW a bonus, I was going through the pockets and found a Beretta 9MM Magazine by Pro Mag. Cool!

The other day I picked up a Kevlar helmet #6 for $18.00 and a WWII Like new backpack for $20.00 the kind that has the triangle shaped frame. I needed another pack like I need another hole in my head. I have more packs than people to use them by a factor of 2. I just can't pass up a good deal for the life of me. I guess I should stop buying stuff so the wife will be happier but it is an obsession with me. MUST BUY GEAR! MUST BUY GEAR! Everywhere I go I see something I want and I already have one or two at home most of the time.

Well I think that will do it for now. Have a great day out there. I have already!
