    Goodwill hunting

    Went by Goodwill today in F-burg and was amazed to find a like-new pair of 34-32 Goodrich tactical pants, w/10 pockets (similar to but better than 5.11 brand) - $4.99. I've now gotten five pairs of tactical pants, one pair of 5.11 shorts, two great concealment vests, a concealment jacket and a couple of heavy duty 1.5" belts over the past year. The lot for about $30 bucks.

    If you've got a good store in your area, it's worth checking out. I can only assume there are a couple of 'operators' who have/are growing too big for their breeches, gawd bless 'em.

    If you like online shopping I got a 10mm wide 22" long gold herringbone chain, 10-14 carat gold for about $40. You'd pay over $200-300 in stores for something like that IF you can find one. Search for 'shop goodwill' and make an account and watch the auctions.

    HTH.

    Trademark, Copyright.....lol

    You mean you bought a .....

    "Shoot Me First Vest" ???

    (p.s. <sarcasm> I use this trademarked phrase (j/k) to point out the folly that the CCers claim that I will be shot first in a robery to the point that I can point out a CC carrier just as easy and if I were a bad guy I would just shoot anyone with a "SMFV" on!)

    Actually, it's a nylon vest from Banana Republic which looks just like a rain vest with a high collar from the outside with two small horiz. zip pockets. Does not look like a SMFV.

    I got the only two in the world, lol.

    But, I think you -might- be missing the point of the OP.

    I am not missing the point, I understand it completely.

    The only clothes I ever donate to Goodwill (or Salvation Army) are those that have shrunk while hanging in my closet.

    Goodwill and Salvation Army can have really good deals on things - you just have to be patient enough to wade through the crappy ones first.

    Last month I picked up a brand new with the tag-on Field & Stream fishing vest at a garage sale, $3.00. I find I like it better for shooting, can pocket a box of 12G, serveral mags, hunting license; in case a coyota stumbles across, and pockets remaining for plenty of other small items for the range.

    My local Goodwill store is posted, so I don't go there very often, unless I can see something REALLY interesting through the windows from the parking lot...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    Same. They only posted against OC, and only about two months ago. I sent HQ a polite letter stating my intent of refusing to buy or donate to them until they start respecting our Constitution and all whom have fought and died for it over the last 235 years, beginning with retracting their ban on firearms.
    The First protects the Second, and the Second protects the First. Together, they protect the rest of our Bill of Rights and our United States Constitution, and help We the People protect ourselves in the spirit of our Declaration of Independence.
