Re: Any Maxpedition Falcon II users out there?

I had looked at a couple other packs, namely the TAD Litespeed and the ATS Raid II. I went against the Litespeed because at the price they're going for I might as well drink the Kifaru Kool Aid . As far as the Raid goes, I used to be but I'm not anymore a fan of the 1 large pocket concept. I know yo...

Any Maxpedition Falcon II users out there?

Hey guys, So...my soon to be ex took off with my Condor LVL 3 bag that was my go to EDC bag. That's ok, it gives me an excuse to further my gear ADD :clap: Thinking about grabbing up a Maxpedition Falcon II as a replacement with a Proteus pack locked on to the bottom. I'm also going to Hawaii in abo...

Purchase issues due to recent panic?

Hey guys, I just want to sound you guys out and see if maybe I've just had bad luck. These 2 purchases were done with sellers with 100% positive feedback with 50+ transactions each so I would ASSUME that makes them somewhat trustworthy. But you know what they say about assuming....makes an a!! out o...

Re: Price of Ammo

Ya know... That makes a whole HELL OF A LOT of sense for why we don't see ammo at my local Wally Worlds. I used to work night time stocking at Wally World and IIRC I THOUGHT there was something in the contract that disallows that. Maybe not because either way Walmart gets paid... Freaking pathetic.....

Re: Alice is going back to work!

It is very likely one of those things that depends on local command. In Afghanyland, we could roll whatever medium size pack we wanted as long as it wasn't flourescent orange and pink, etc....

Steel Cased Caliber ID

Hey guys, Need some help with this one. I bought a mixed lot of steel cased 7.62X39 the other day. Well some of the rounds are significantly taller than the others. They also won't fit/feed in a standard AK mag. They're not 7.62X39 and they're not 5.56X45, not 7.62X51, not 30-06. They're marked on t...

Re: Signs of a return to "normal" prices?

Walmart in my area is still generally pretty bare BUT I'm starting to see ammo come back in. I was lucky today and managed to snag 3 boxes of 7.62X39 Tulammo at 5.20 or so a pop. Not great but not 40 cents a pop plus shipping nonsense either. Saw a couple boxes of WWB .45ACP, a box of Tulammo .45 th...

Hey guys, Looking at getting a small pack for EDC/Laptop carry/secondary item carry on for aircraft. The pack also has to be able to be docked and locked to another pack or attached via 5.11 tier system. I've pretty much narrowed my choices down to the 5.11 MOAB 10 or the Kifaru E&E with Xray straps...
