I recently found a box full of old Maxim Stuff and FHM mags in my house . Do you think there would be any interest in a little bit of home for the boys?

There are enough copies floating around here now to last for a decade, but some Shotgun News and outdoors magazines are always fought over.

Sports Illustrated also.

Those usually get snatched up pretty fast.

I have an Aimpoint CompC with a Larue mount that I can't sell for enough money to part with. For these guys, I'll give it to them for free. Who do I contact, how do I ship?

When I move in two weeks, I'll certainly look around.

How fucked up is it that we have to do this for troops in the field?

Package sent out today.

I certainly hope that TheTacticalSolution is getting swamped with stuff; EVERY Arfcommer has stuff sitting around that thr troops can put to good use.

Other lights would be great too. In fact, I'm sure that anything that you guys could drum up would be very welcome. I wish I had a ton of extra cash laying around that I could spend on lights, mounts, sights and everything else they need but I don't. So I'm doing what I can and with the help of other Arfcom members I'm hoping to send them a lot more than what I can just afford myself.

I'd be willing to bet the guys in A-stan are needing alot of the headband type flashlights like we need here in Iraq, they are fairly cheap but the hands-free part about them is a godsend. If any of you have those floating around, I'm sure the guys over there would put them to good use like we do ours :)

Send bug spray, lots of bug spray. You can't have too much bug spray in the Kingdoms of Backwardistan.

hell I started reading at the school of infantry, go figure...i'm sure they'd find a use....


and thank you to everyone, many of us don't know what gear is other then what we're issued.... hell I'm a "Gear queer" for having a surefire aviator, my own 16 mags with magpul followers and a spec-ops T.H.E. pack.... go figure....

one thing that we always need out here (we're way out towards pakistan) is batteries. the small firebase that we're based out of doesn't have a px like alot of the even medium sized fobs and support bases do. so the one thing that we're always in need of is batteries to use in our weapons and nods and just for general use purposes.

having been to oif and oef, I can say that it's alot harder to get small stuff like in oef. iraq is usually pretty well stocked comparitively.

Hey Michael!
Do you need copies of Shotgun News to send over? I have a small stack of them. I can send you a box full.
