    Fredericksburg Military Surplus - new store downtown.

    We were driving by the main drag on Princess Anne Street and spotted a new store. Corky's Military Surplus. Looked a bit kitschy with the ads painted on the window, but planned a return trip.

    Went by today and WOW!!

    Lots of gear, full line of Propper and 5.11 clothing, knives, holsters, packs, T-shirts, and lots of hats, helmets, surplus stuff and the odd jewelry and rings, and of course surplus gear. They had a section in the back entitled 'Foreign Surplus gear' but it was 'closed'.

    If you're in the area, drop by and browse. Friendly staff. A+.

    Got a holster and a tac belt case.

    A gun in a holster is better than one drawn and dispensing bullets. Concealed forces the latter. - ixtow

    Hi, I'm hypercritical. But I mean no harm, I just like to try to look deeply at life

    Might be that some people don't get out all that much - good that people are still "discovering" such places though.

    I've lived in the Fredericksburg area for 13 years. Corky's has been here for as long as I have. It's an interesting store to say the least.
