Hey AZ guys, and girls. Is there any army surplus stores around? I live right on the 60, and Mill Ave. It could be anywhere around Phoenix, Tempe, Chandler, or Mesa. I don't mind the drive.

Try Larada's. It's one of the bigger ones.

www.laradas.com/

It's on Main and Extension (Extension is between Alma School and Country Club).

+1 on Laradas. They got more shit than the Army.

What are you looking for? For the most part, Larada's has a whole bunch of china charlie crap. MREs are overpriced. Camelback gear is overpriced. All the gear is import shit or ALICE stuff. Backpacks are import shit except for ALICE. Decent selection and prices and ammocans.

Overall, larada's is a useless store. Unless youre an angry young kid who like to dress like a vampire or something to that effect.

+1 That store is useless and overpriced on everything. I found the ammocan expensive as well.

+1!

Useless as tits on a boar! I'll go there to pic up expensive main entres for a camping trip, but most of their shit is junk. BDUs are factory seconds. And the fuck heads are closed on Mormon sunday too!

Allied Surplus at Dunlap and 43rd AVENUE in Glendale is not bad. I little light on gear, but plenty of new/used BDUs.

What are you looking for?

I dont know if it's some LDS-owned family business (not that there's anything wrong with that) or what, but you'd think after 10 years doing the same thing, some of these women would have a CLUE as to what they carry in their own store.

Bwahahahaha! We're taking over the world!!! (Although I agree we should lose the crap merchandise.)

[thread hijack]ETA: D. get's 10 extra points for using the correct terminology.

"Hey, aren't you a Mormon?"

"No, I'm LDS."

One of my favorite comebacks. [/thread hijack]
