Hey I was wondering if anyone knew of any Army Surplus stores around the chicagoland area. If not feel free to post internet links. I want to make a sweet loadout. Thanks

I know there's one on Lincoln just south of Belmont and another on broadway north of montrose. Not sure about the suburbs though.

Trader Johns in South Elgin on Rte.31 a couple mi. south of bypass rte.20

It's a little place packed with all kinds of goodies. Run by an ex-SEPD leo, nice folks in there.

The one on Belmont is huge and well stocked. They have been around forever. Can be surly. Prices a little high, but do have true US issue surplus.

The one on Broadway is small and doesn't have much. Mostly knock offs. Nice folks.

"Boys town" and goth kids everywhere...you can pretty much wear whatever you want and fit right in.

LOL, one of my friend's grandmother's usd to live in Boys Town...she always commented on how she was the least likely to get assaulted by a man and how many times a week she saw guys in mesh shirts!
