    Default Our pickups and finds over the past few months!

    Didn't realize how busy we have been the past few months. As usual, nothing special but stuff the kid and I like, mostly helmets. I think the kid got the bug too! Several of them were suprises for the kid as he has been saving/spending his money on some of his other interests. Lots of photos, I hope I get them all in order and labeled correct. Several of these have been posted on the Forum, independantly, already.

    The kids favorite he put on our K-Pot, we grabbed about a dozen of these that were marked up, out of a hug bin. All looked to come from the same USMC group deployed someplace in the middle east.

    Hi Russ, I think the item in the US Mountain troopers Bergan style pack is the white camo cover for it.

    You have certainly been busy!

    Cheers, Ade.

    I've really grown a liking to these M-1s and the shells are so affordable I've managed to accumulate a fair number of them, all a little different and a few that I'm lifting the re-paint off of. Kid just rolls his eyes when he walks in the office and sees another shell sitting on the floor.....
