I think this armed forces section is great! I have an idea I'd like to propose: Shipping from an FPO to another FPO is free, so how about an entire thread for deployed servicemembers to pass on gear and goodies before heading back home? I know I have a ton of stuff that I'd like to give/trade/swap to a fellow military member who is deployed and in need. People could just list whatever items they have available, and if someone sees something they need they can just ask. Just an idea...:D

DesertTram, if you know any guys with good "a-bags" for medics, we could use a few. We got a bunch of junk CLS bags that we are maxxing out and making "a-bags" out of blackhawk backpacks! Molle attachments are needed for a few guys who went thru RFI and they ran out. Im using my personal gear, but weve got some joes that arent fully oufitted yet. Any help would of course be fully appreciated!

Hey I could use some weapons cleaning gear. The small Otis cleaning kit they gave me is giving me anger management problems compared to the old cleaning kits we used to put in our buttstocks. I'll be glad to take some gear off you, and I'm sure some marines in platoon would like it too.

huynh,

I have an extra cleaning kit. They gave us Otis as well but I brought a few of the other ones just in case. I'm down around Liberty, but I move around quite a bit. I'm sure I'm coming your way or can mail it.

Thanks Wolfpack331, well, if you're allowed to ship cleaning kits to me, I'll be glad to take it off you, and let me know if you need anything and I'll see if I can get it for you.

I need a new ACOG...no joke mine is F'd and the armorers want to give me a '68. F-that...I'll make due.

I am looking for a plate carrier.... I've had the haji shop stitch mine back together like three times.

I've got a few OD double mag pouches, mix of Spec-Ops, BHI, and DBT, two X6 Spec-Ops mag pouches in tan (used)...I'll rummage around and see what else I've got in my trunk...Oh yeah, and a Spec-Ops over armor vest in Coyote (used and some wear and tear on it). I may have a X4 pouch in tan too, I'll have to check. I'm looking for a KAC M4 forearm if anyone has access to a spare, and some M-Frames (mine dissapeared somewhere...) Anyone have any size large whitewater gloves? I haven't been able to get my hands on a pair since I was in Ft Bliss in '05 and they're the best gloves I've ever used!

Until May....No problem on returning it, though I'd hate for it to get too used.
Gear tends to get torn up pretty fast. Are you Socal or norcal back home?

It may be Commiefornia but I miss it already...I forgot how much this place sucks.
