To wet and windy to hunt today so of course I went to the army navy store.
I found one pair of OD US issue 100% wool pants for $6.00 Then I found a pair of 100% wool grey German Army issue pants (I think they are German) for $5.00. Both never been worn. Like brand new. Fit good. :dblthumb:
Found a warm hat for $6.00 but it rang up for only $3.00.:59:

Then I came home and threw my new shovel at the stump and broke the handle. :15::17::34:

Why for you toss yer shovel? Shovel's fer diggin', tommyhawks fer chuckin'...

Sorry, had to ask.

Looks like it needed a new hardwood handle anyways...and it's more portable now!

Good find on the surplus.

Funny....how many people would appreciate that you were throwing your shovel at a stump, outside of BCUSA.

Our Army Surplus stores are high dollar establishments. Never find anything close to a deal like that here.
Good score. Hope you enjoy them.

Throwing hawk, throwing shovel- either one, figure you will need a new handle pretty regular. Might as well rough out a couple of extra's. :)

It's good fun to sink a shovel in an oak round! Worth a handle or two. You should have got Terry to bless your shovel like he did mine, my handle is unbreakable!

Maybe if you were properly trained by real Russian Spetsnaz your handle would still be intact. Leave that type of work to the pro's my friend.

Good deal on the pants and hat, the hat is German also, FYI

Amen, our only surplus store is a rip-off joint catering to Rambo wannabees. Those same pants would be $40.00 a pair, and nobody wears wool in Hawai'i. :rolleyes:

Our local surplus store is crazy overpriced. You got some good looking deals! Where is that store? I'll check it out the next time I'm down that way.

I should have. Do you think he could do it over the phone if I stand on the roof and face toward Iowa?
