Catalogs Part One



I thought I'd show you some of the catalogs I get my mail happen get this one today so I thought we'd take a quick look at a major surplus and survival this f you can buy military trucks them but what I found kind of interesting in the back was the chance they've got a Belgian pop town 1995 they've got a checks bedroll for 2995 funny if you heard me read the talking about the book review of snow Walker here's a 24 person cold climate tent with bunk beds of course this would be kind of elaborate to carry with you anywhere you'd obviously need quite a team but uh there's a moderate weather can't but they've got these these larger tents and smaller tents too I thought that was interesting oh here's a product that I never heard of fiber fix and I looked on the internet about this it's basically I don't want to see a duct tape but it's better than duct tape and that it's um it says 100 times stronger than duct tape it's got some kind of probably some mesh and it's got some epoxy in fiber in it so the idea is that you repair something with us I think you dip it in water first and you wrap it around something and basically the stuff hardens they showed videos of the guy cutting a dumbbell in half and REE fixing it with us doing a home water pipes a guy cut cut it and it was leaking any actually while it was spraying in his face put this on it's not the leak that another one of a guy who cut up his bicycle put this on it and then did all these stunts with his bicycle so and I think they have a high temperature version as well for like muffler some things so for a 40 inch long piece only 695 that strikes me as something that could be a bigger emergency repair item they had a really cool video of they made body armor for this TV shot out of this for these women which was kind of fun to watch they they wrap them with this stuff and then they cut it off and then you know the people put it back on before the shot they were going to be pelted with paintballs which you know hurts at close range okay then they've got all our things like knives different knives that are here they have probably a better knife and then they have knives that are probably quite a bit cheaper they've got sleeping bags t-shirts clothing section but we've got food storage quick clot pin nulls mylar bags more military surplus things is ski-doo net hands sleeping bags all thumb through quicker here so I don't want this to be too long but we do have we got the classic ammo back boxes now I haven't done much for price comparison so I'm not sure of it this is the probably the one you see the most around these 50 caliber ammo cans brand new 1995 here's one below it this one's used very good condition 1495 so you save five bucks by getting a used one they've got some tough stuff from World War two like leggings so some of the things can get a little bit of collectors value so they the prices tend to start going up gas mass potassium iodide 90 capsules for twenty dollars that's probably a better deal and I've seen any way or usually you see them carded and they're like anywhere between well they usually 15 for like 14 tablets so you can see if you're getting 9420 that's a big savings they have a radiation meter but it's not calibrated that's a big deal if you're trying to be accurate you're just looking for super fun it isn't I guess emergency kits and compact shovel gloves well here's something interesting these survival tabs I'm gonna ventually get some of these and try this strikes me is a little high on the price but again Gary compare these with these this is a 15 day supply of food I know these works because I've read an article by an athlete and what some people do with these you use them on marathon type events like triathlons and different things or you could imagine someone might do it on the idea to run or something the idea is that you can continue you take 12 tablets per day but you take them at different intervals so there's always a small amount of food going into you and nutrients and basically if you don't want to stop for a meal this can get you through so it's certainly if athletes use it now maybe they use more than recommended because they're burning so many calories I think that it would certainly work in a survival situation and they've got the mountain house food huh then we start getting into the MREs they've got packages are memories it's always funny how people put a package like this one says 12 complete meals only 3995 these don't have the heaters in them and then they'll have another one here let's see if I can find the other one here well I'm just saying you have to look without here 12 memories so you would think that would be the same but that's 54 so its twenty dollars more well these are the complete MREs with everything that's in the original MREs accessory pack with all the things are not all of the side dishes and everything no canteens here's something interesting you can buy just the 24 of the just the main part of the MRE the main dish the entry is 24 of them you can get 450 bucks side dishes you can get pack 12 pack for nineteen dollars and then they kept I don't know they get a lot of these a flashlight combination stun guns I've never heard anyone talk about how well they work there's a propane type style that fits on the top of a small propane tank and the first aid kits they've got things are varying prices and quality too so you'd want to look at that they had a blanket in here that then it look too bad that was fifty eighty percent all I think seven percent off selected item major surplus and survival they're located in gardenia California and these prices are good till January 23rd so there you go there's one catalog and i'll i'll do some more as i go along but i think they specifically cared this one with some other things that are hoping that people buy people gifts out of it
