    Went there once and they were closed during business hours. Perhaps now that you remind me, I'll try them again.

    I'll let you know if I go, I have to do some volunteer work over by the airport on Monday so I might swing by afterward...

    But based on your experience, I'll probably call first! :)

    They seem to be reasonably priced on most things and I bet they more not listed there.

    There's the one on Bandera rd a block inside 410. But to be honest I haven't been there in over 10 years.

    That's one of the two National Outdoors stores (the other is on San Pedro). Not bad, but not great either...

    Majormadmax, I have been there a couple of times. It is a small shop and they have a lot of items, but do not always know what their items are.

    Cool, I'll try to check it out myself tomorrow.

    Hopefully it'll have something different, we were just at Military City Surplus north of Ft Sam yesterday and while they've done a lot to clean up that place, their inventory doesn't change much.

    I hit a lot of military surplus stores, a recent one being the "US Shop" in Böblingen, Germany (near Stuttgart); but I rarely find much.

    With online sources, unfortunately good surplus shops are getting tougher and tougher to find! :(

    But that doesn't stop me from trying! :)

    Cheers! M2

    Well, I learned something new today...Armed Forces Supply in Converse is closed on Mondays! :(

    I'll edit my post above to reflect that. Don't know when I'll get back there again...
