    WTB: SKS top/dust receiver cover

    Bought a used SKS that came with an aftermarket scoped dust cover and I'm looking for an original to put back on it. This is a Chinese rifle, so a Chinese cover would be preferred but I reckon they'll all fit. Let me know what you've got and how much for you to part with it.
  2. For sale is my PA 2.5x prism scope that I purchased from PA about a month ago. Mounted to the rifle for about an hour before deciding I want something with some more magnification. Scope will come in the box with everything that came with it. Condition is like brand new, only difference is that I put blue Loctite on the mount base screws as they don't come with thread locker from the factory. Asking $170 shipped or best offer (PA sells them for $200). I prefer PayPal (invoice for +3%) but I will accept money orders.
  3. I bought a new PS4 on impulse back in August and haven't hardly touched it. Comes with one controller and Black Ops 3, all cables and whatever else came in the box as well as the original box. Looking to sell or trade, open to anything good. $250 shipped, pics on request but looks like every other PS4 ever made of course.

    WTB: Glock 9mm Magazine Insert Plate

    Looking for just one of these for new model 9mm Glock mag: Bought some new floorplates thinking they came with new inserts when they didn't and threw one away by carelessness. Just need the one, rather not pay 5 dollar shipping for a 3 dollar part from somewhere online for something someone can stick in an envelope for half a dollar.

    WTB: Black Synthetic Mossberg 500 Forend

    I can order the Hogue forend for about 23 bucks so for anything else I'm looking to come out cheaper.

    WTB: Black Synthetic Mossberg 500 Forend

    Yeah that would work.
  8. I need a black synthetic forend to match a hogue stock that I already have. Not particular about style though a matching black hogue forend would be nice. Looking for used at a good price.
  9. I stopped by Buds gun shop in Lexington yesterday figuring I would have a look at some 45 acp Glocks. I get there and folks are parking on the grass and curbs because the lot is full. I think oh hey, maybe the gunny or hickok45 is here doing a signing. I get inside and there's number dispenser with a sign stating to take a number to see a sales associate. No special deals or offers, just everyday businees. I pull out 79 and after 5 minutes they call 21. I stayed for about 45 minutes and they only got as far as 30 something. 95% of folks were buying handguns, and looking like half were first time gun owners. One of the guys at the counter said it had been this way for at least a month, day in day out, so it seems to predate the EO talk. Anyone else had an experience like this at any of your LGS's?? I didn't realize there was this kind of buying going on right now.
  10. I have 280 rounds of East German 124 grain short range training ammo (http://7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinAmmo034.htm) in 20 round boxes and 72 rounds of Czechoslovakian hollow core training ammo (http://7.62x54r.net/MosinID/MosinAmmo013.htm) in 12 round boxes for sale. Looking to sell it altogether for $200 OBO plus UPS ground shipping (ammo can not included). I would do a local pick up if you're in the south east KY area. This is the East German stuff. As far as I'm aware there's no more of this out there except in private hands. You can only find it as it pops up online or at gun shows. I got it in a trade and have never seen it otherwise. This is the Czech hollow core. This still shows up from vendors intermittently online. (Crossposted)
  11. IMO the best surplus pack available right now for general civvy use is still the phased out USMC ILBE. Designed by Arc'teryx and made by Propper, they're a solid piece of gear. They're really more like a modern backpacking pack just made with cordura instead of thin nylon. Marines phased them out because they just didn't jive with wearing body armor under the pack suspension. So unless that's a major concern, they're superb for all sorts of use. I use mine for winter camping when I need to carry a little extra weight. To me it's comfortable to about 45 pounds. After that it starts to lose its balance, but again that's all preference. You can find them pretty much complete in good shape for $80-100.
  12. Organize as a small co-op of preppers. Be selective, don't go for any kind of open enrollment. Shoot for squad size, 8-12 folks. Select a specialty fot each based on skills and experience. Have them become subject matter experts in expedient medicine, survival, communication, etc. Require each member to teach a class to the rest once per year, have a different class every month. Get together and go camping, put your skills to the test for a couple of days at a time. DONT focus on military combat skills, just cover the basics. The other aspects will be much more important for long term. Abandon a command structure, decentralize. Odds are no more than half your crew will manage to muster in a time of crisis. It's 'fun' for some folks to imagine gun battles and fighting for the rights and whatever else... but the truth is simply existing and resisting will be more important for the success and survival of your ideals. You must avoid combat, avoid conflict. Gunfights are a fast track to getting dead. Odds are if you start pulling maneuvers armed in a hot zone you'll get splattered before you realize there's an asset buzzing above you.
