WTB: ZS Flag

Looking to buy up to two ZS flags that are available in store.

I have not been able to process an order through the store, and am worried everyone at HQ is now a zombie. I am in need of a flag to fly at a local preppers networking weekend. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Anyone tried the storefront lately?

Sigh. Shame. My chapter has misplaced our flag, I was hoping to pick one up for myself and another member who expressed interest.

Anyone tried the storefront lately?

Trying to order a few pieces of merch, but after I log in, go to my cart and click "checkout", my browser just keeps reloading my cart. No notifications at the top of the page.

Trying to place order from iPhone, same results on safari and chrome.

Re: Neat new device: 4-bay Batter re-charger/power pack

This looks like a much more affordable version of the Goal Zero Guide 10. While I have never used mine I certainly love the options it gives me, and most of my electronics are still based on AA so I like having something more flexible then my Anker battery, even if the anker gets used much more oft...

Re: A Kel Tec Sub 2000 in 9mm

Here's some thoughts: FYI - I bought the 9mm/Glock/S2K years ago, it filled a few small niche requirements. I wouldn't repeat that purchase today. A friend of mine is on good terms with a local importer/distributer. That friend started asking his contact about the S2K after seeing mine, and he was s...

Tactical Solutions would be my pick these days.
Mind if I ask why? Just curious, not challenging your opinion. Reviewers online seem to give negative opinions of all conversion kits.

While I hate the interface, would tapatalk be of any help?

Re: Bolt Action: Stock vs Chassis

Magpul makes a stock, same ergonomics to the shotgun stocks they put out a few years back, which I find absolutely hideous. But it's probably the cheapest route for AICS mag bottom metal, and semi adjustable length of pull and comb heights. It's the theoretical light weights that appeal to me, but c...

Re: Kifaru gear pricing

Only way to be sure would be if you had screen shots to compare pricing of specific items over time. I know in the past year they changed at least the frame line up (dropped the "bikini", introduced the "ultralight"). It's possible by adjusting suppliers and purchase quantities they were able to res...
