1. Due to the amount of SPAM from foreign countries lately, we have made the decision to manually approve all new members. While we regret that this must be done and the added time that it will take for new members to be approved, it is necessary at this time. We hope to have legitimate new members approved in a timely manner, no longer than a couple of hours. If the Administrators are online at the time, it can be as soon as a couple of minutes. Thank you for your patience.

    I just scored a USMC Combat Tent Never been used for Y1500.00 or $200.00. I got to get the funk out of it but it's all there and the best news is there's more tents at this place I got it from. DOCROB

    Its a great tent I use to own one. Cool thing is its a heavy duty camo tent! I found it a little to small for me tho. So I traded it good deal on that tho I paid over 2x that much.

    It smelled funky not mildew funky but funky none the less, this island is nearly 100% humidity all the time so it must have been in storage for a while. I'ld say 10-12lbs is about right. It came with a repair kit, 18 stakes, and cordage. To be honest you only need 9 stakes for the whole tent. And the Rainfly is the heaviest part of the whole tent. No the tent wasn't dirty, I don't think it's ever been used. All theother tents I saw were the same way. I think there are 8-9 more tents at this surplus shop I went to.
