I noticed they have a bunch of useful stuff listed. The weapons helicopters and vehicles seem to be what everyone thinks about but they had all kinds of gear listed anybody picked any of this up or made use of this resource for your agency?

We got some rifles from the Air Force. Vietnam Era, old triangle one piece hand guard with no forward assist. Still had full auto on them. These were for people who didn't own their own rifle.

Yeah we have a few helicopters, an old Peacemaker APC and 50 plus M-16A1s. But they have lots of individual equipment listed mag pouches, modern LBVs and other stuff that could be pretty useful in bad budget years.

Fixed it for you. I wouldn't get in a Peacekepper if you paid me, ask me why!

A sometimes rolling target that is prone to breaking down, uncomfortable, and is likely to be penetrated easily?

Top Heavy and likley to roll over it had an air of POS about it. We have little Bearcat now.

OK, thanks guys. I really only asked why because Depidy_Dawg said "ask me why?" I rode in enough of them and don't plan on getting in anymore unless they are on display in a USAF Museum. Even then, I'd probably get in and fall asleep because that was the only useful thing I got out of them during the boring Cold War.

Back to the OP's question, they have some cool stuff. We used to look at he offerings on line then make a trip up to north Florida to shop. We got a deuce and a half once and had to drive it back. It was in pretty bad shape and turned the seven hour drive into a 14 + hour drive. It didn't have a roof which made the hot sun and sporadic rain showers more enjoyable for the poor guy driving it. If I recall, refurbing it was about $15,000. We also got some early model M-16's, gas masks, Kevlar helmets for the entire PD (200 or so) and other stuff. We looked at a Zodiac, but couldn't justify the repairs. This was before the two wars though and haven't checked to see how the stock is since.

Ah, the good ol Peacekeeper. We had a couple when I was at Kings Bay NSB. I much preferred the Dragoon for utility and sleeping comfort.

Or for people who didn't get those new short barreled Wilson Tactical shotguns...
